Ventura County Masters
The Ventura County Masters (VCM) swim team is a United States Masters Swimming registered club in the Southern Pacific Masters Association and Southwestern Zone. We are the adult swimming team of the Buenaventura Swim Club, a United States Swimming registered club and a California 501(C)(3) non-profit organization under the name of Buenaventura Swim Patrons, Inc. A copy of the club bylaws or team handbook are available upon request.
We encourage participation in our activities by adults who are interested in increased physical fitness through interval-based competitive swimming practice. We welcome participation from basic/intermediate skill levels up to and including elite-level "world class" Masters swimmers and triathletes. Our goal is to promote a healthy, safe, fun, and low-key team atmosphere in conjunction with the Buenaventura Swim Club, its coaches, swimmers, parents, and affiliates.
As the most senior group of the club, VCM members bring experience, leadership, and maturity for the benefit of our club’s younger swimmers. VCM members have been active as club Board members, meet operations officials, and have taken leading roles in the fundraising activities of the club for the benefit of the entire organization.
VCM trains 12 months out of the year, except when pool maintenance issues force us out of the pool. Training is conducted in the beautiful Buenaventura Swim Club Competition Pool at the Ventura Aquatics Center. Workouts are normally conducted with the pool set up in a 25-yard format (short course), but long course (50-meter) training is scheduled to occur in the mornings during the long course season (May-August). Our team dues are $75/month due on the first of the month and payable to Buenaventura Swim Club. Payments received after the 10th of the month may be subject to a late payment fee. Out of town/ drop in fee is $10.00
The VCM team currently boasts over 100 members with differing swimming skills, interests, and goals. Some of our members are lap swimmers who enjoy the social physical benefits of the workout environment. Other team members participate in swim meets, triathlons, other events and invitationals throughout the year. Several of our team members are among the elite in the region, state, nation, and world. Our national men’s team members have placed in the top 3 of the team standings (small team division) at the USMS short course national championships numerous times. Our triathlete members have placed high in world and national championships and Ironman competitions.
