ADULT MASTERS SWIMMING
SOCAL Masters swimming welcomes anyone 18 years of age or older to enjoy structured swim workouts with our team. We are a non-competitive group that swims for fun, fitness and the maintenance of a healthy lifestyle. The group dynamic offered at SOCAL Masters works to promote individual accountability, helping each swimmer attend practice on a regular basis. No prior experience with competitive swimming is necessary, however this is not a learn-to-swim program. You must be able to at least swim laps of freestyle comfortably. Most of our members are former competitive swimmers having competed in the high school or college level.
Practices are offered five days a week, Monday - Friday, 5:45am - 7:00am at Tustin High School. The cost for our program is $75/month. There is no drop-in option. Each morning, we are often the only group in the entire 50m pool, so each swimmer enjoys their own lane. Practices from the end of September - May are Short Course, while June - August are Long Course. All Masters swimmers have access to hot showers and a locker room after practice.
Note: If you are a currently registered USMS swimmer in town on business/vacation and are looking for a workout, please contact email Coach Ben to join the group.
