About Us - SCSC Masters: An Adult Swim Program and Membership

Santa Clara Swim Club Adult Swim Program is a member of United States Masters Swimming (USMS). We offer coached workouts for adults aged 18 and over and is in season year round,  Our Membership also includes Lap Swimming for those that wish to swim independently. 

Our program features 3 Member Workout Types: Beginner (Instructional Work Out), Intermediate (Base Work Out), and Advanced (Gold Elite). 

Lanes are also set aside and dedicated to Member Lap Swimming during any work out time slots except our noon time work outs. (In this case, for noon time lap swimming we recommend you use the City's Noontime Open Swim which is fee based and run by the City of Santa Clara Recreation Department; 11:45 AM to 1:30 PM @ Main Pool at the ISC).

Needing Lessons First? 

SCSC also offers Adult Lessons managed under the Learn To Swim Program for those with no prior swimming experience or are wanting group or private stroke lessons.

Schedule of Our Masters Swim Hours:  

Please refer to 2015 Schedule for our current schedule. Especially check interval times required to make the Gold Elite workout.  Base work out is designed to handle any level of swimmer except someone new or beginning swimming. Instructional Work out is designed for Beginners or those seeking a lot of stroke instruction and support.

Want to try out our program? We offer a one month special price of $40.00; use the pre-registration process to sign up and get the 1st month rate adjusted once your record is officially moved into the club's database; usually takes up to 5 days, but, once you've filled out the online process, you can begin swimming.

WE DO NOT OFFER ONE TIME TRYOUTS.  If you wish to check out the program please pay the $9.00 drop in fee.

September Special Offer: During the month of September, We offer 2 free tryouts to our "Instructional Workouts only". Tell Coach John you are there to check out his program. This is an instructional class only for those relatively new to swimming, but can swim at least one lap non stop.

Want to Join our Club and Swim today? How to Proceed:

First, complete a Pre-registration record within this web site by joining the Masters Program. (Please ignore volunteer hour and age group "agree" selections but do check each box off, they do not matter for Masters Swimmers except for (1) your agreement to liability issue). No charges will occur at Pre-Registration time but please complete payment information.  Once you've completed a Pre-Registration record, you can show up to any Master's Time Slot.  Tell the coach on deck you are new and pre-registered.  If you have not also joined USMS yet, you can ask the coach for a one month waiver from USMS that covers your insurance liability.  After one month, and you wish to continue swimming with SCSC Masters, you must officially join USMS.   Your pre-registration record will be moved into our database within 3-5 days after you've entered your data. At that time you will be charged $40/first month trial rate.  Once your first month is completed, your billing will be the 1st of each month at the regular rate.  


To quit or program at anytime, please forward an email to Coach Gary at  (Cancel membership policy: please inform us at least 5 days prior to month end).

Don't want to commit just yet? You're best bet then is to Pay the $9.00 Drop in fee to try out the pool and our club.

Comfort Level:

* Masters swimmers come and go within a work out or independently swim laps on their own. We realize you all have schedules, and, there is no requirement to make every yard, nor every stroke.  Many wander in late, many leave early. yes .... however, we do have a few simple rules, and, we ask everyone to use common sense and be aware of safety at all times.



1. Must be Registered with USMS for the current year - if you are not registered with USMS we cannot allow you to swim for insurance reasons.

2. Must pay a fee for swimming by either registration directly with the club, or PAY DROP IN FEE of $9.00 per swim.

3. Proper Lane Etiquette is a must in the pool.

4. Only swim during Masters Hours; if you are uncertain look for someone in a red sweatshirt or red t-shirt (Safety Coordinator), and they will advise if it is okay to be swimming as a Master.

 We reserve the right to refuse access to the facility if these rules are not followed.

Schedule for 2016 is same as 2015, see Important Notices TAB for SCHEDULE CHANGES!



DROP IN FEE IS NOW $9.00 as of Sept. 1, 2016
