Fleet Masters Swimming
exists to promote the sport of swimming amongst adults of all ages
and ability levels. Our goal is to help people of all
backgrounds become more proficient in the water and to learn to
love the sport of swimming.
Join our Program: Anyone 18 or over who can
swim 25 meters without having to stop may start in our program.
We train beginners, fitness swimmers, triathletes and
former/current competitive swimmers. There are competitions
offered during the year but they are completely optional. The
people involved in United States Masters Swimming are some of the
best people you'll ever meet!
involved: There is a $25 club
registration fee (that will be assessed immediately upon
registration on our site). There will also be a $25
yearly membership fee (billed in January each year) and an
additional requirement to become a member of United States Masters
Swimming for the year when joining our
link to join. USMS membership is $40 each year.
|You may not
become a member of Fleet Masters Swimming without a USMS
Masters pay $70 a month for as many coached
practices as you like each month. Practice times are located
on the Calendar tab of this site. Make sure you check
practice times weekly to see if there have been any changes.
Also, be on the lookout for any emails that signal practice
SBR members pay $45 a month for two
coached practices a week. Swimmers in this group MUST have a
current membership with the Cy Tri or SBR triathlon club to
take advantage of this rate. Swimmers must have their USMS
and club registration current. Please send current proof of
registration with Cy Tri or SBR when you choose this
Swim Only members pay $60 a month to come swim
laps during any designated lap swim practice times without
coach direction. Note - you must swim during a
designated masters practice time with a coach on the deck for
supervision. While our lanes are not overly crowded,
we will offer lap swim times at all practices. If we get
short on lane space in the evenings or mornings we may have to
restrict open lap swim times. Lap swim members may
have to share lane space if we have limited lane space and
lots of swimmers.
Practice: We welcome potential new members
to come join us for one free practice before signing
up. Please go to the TRIAL SWIM FORM tab on our website
to print a form, fill it out and bring it with you to your free
trial practice. Once you decide you want to swim with Fleet
Masters, you need to register with the team before your next
swim (registration tab located on home page). You then
have 30 days from your first swim to get signed up with USMS (at
USMS.com). Try to get to your trial practice a little early
so the coach can collect your form and answer any questions you may
have. Check the calendar for any practice changes before you
Registration: Please be aware that your credit card
will be charged a $25 club registration fee immediatey upon
completing your registration and that dues will be automatically
assessed monthly once you are registered. Our billing is
done by an automated computer system and once you have registered
you will be billed for monthly dues. Please wait to
register for the team until after you have completed your trial
practice and know you want to swim with us!
need to bring: A competitive swimsuit will
be the best choice for practice. Baggy shorts or a
recreational bathing suit is acceptable but it will make swimming
more difficult. A quality pair of goggles are also highly
recommended as chlorinated water can be hard on the eyes and its so
much easier to see where you are going with goggles! Mirrored
goggles are useful in outdoor pools (especially when we work on
backstroke and the sun is out). You may have to try out
different kinds of goggles to find the kind that work best for you.
Each face is shaped differently. You may also want a
swim cap to protect your hair from pool chemicals. We have
kickboards and pull buoys available at the pool. We highly
recommend you get a pair of swim fins for certain training
sets. There are several different kinds of fins; short,
medium length and long. If you are unsure of what would work best
for you, please aske your choach. All of these items are
available at D&J Sports - located at Spring Cypress and 249.
They offer a discount if you mention that you are a member of
Rooms/showers: We have shower and locker
facilities available but ask that swimmers spend a maximum of 10
minutes getting ready after practice (especially in the mornings
and evenings) so that coaches can lock up the facilities.
Your coaches have work and kids to get off to school in the
mornings and would very much appreciate you being very quick in the
have a facebook page!

to find out if there is any updated practice information if you are
not yet signed up with the team and receiving team
