* Lahaina Swim Club [Lahaina Pool in Lahaina]
* (Also Iao Diving, Maui Masters & Valley Isle Masters Swim Teams)


WHERE ARE YOU STAYING? Maui's bigger than most people realize - you can take an hour or more to drive to some pools from some locations.

  • Lahaina, Kapalua or Kaanapali: You'll probably want to work out at the Lahaina Pool at 240 Shaw St (right turn on the southern border of Lahaina-town heading in/north). Coach Tom Popdan coaches the USA-S Lahaina Swim Club; and Mike Ritter coaches Masters [usually MWF 5:30-7am and T/Th eve 6:30-8pm]).

  • Kihei, Wailea or Makena: You'll probably want to work out at the Kihei Pool at 303 E. Lipoa St. Coach Shawn Donahue coaches the Age Group team.

  • North Shore (Kahului, Wailuku), You'll probably want to work out at Kokua Pool (with Coach Reid Yamamoto and HSC) or with Maui Dolphins at Pukalani (M-F 4:30-6pm+ or Masters (Valley Ilse MWF 5:45-7:15AM Pukalani, Maui Masters T/Th 6-7:30AM Sakamoto and PM Pukalani/Sakamoto M-Th 6-7:30pm) programs.

  • North Shore (Haiku, Kula, Paia, Makawao, Pukalani), You'll probably want to work out at Upcountry (Pukalani) Pool with Maui Dolphins at Pukalani (M-F 4:30-6pm Mon to Fri.)

  • Masters [Our masters coaches are USA-S Coaches] (Valley Isle MWF 5:45-7:15AM Pukalani, Maui Masters Tues/Thur 5:45-7:30AM Kokua Pool and PM Pukalani/Sakamoto M-Th 6-7:30pm + Sat 7:30-9am) programs.

WHEN ARE YOU STAYING? Hawaii swim schedules are not in sync with most mainland schedules. Our high school (non-Club) season runs through the winter, so many times the pools are crowded with high school teams during Winter Break, and they cannot welcome visitors during their practices. LCM State Champs in July means that many teams are on break for some of the summer. You'll have to check with the individual teams for their schedules. If age group teams are on break, you'd also have the chance to connect with masters coaches that can coach Age Group swimmers.

  • IF ALL ELSE FAILS, Maui County pools are open to the public for free and have lap swim all day generally from 9-4:30pm (noon-4:30 Sunday) if nothing else works out.

  • OCEAN SWIMMING: There are informal non-sanctioned fun swims most Sundays. Ask the coaches or masters swimmers in your area if interested. These are NON-SANCTIONED, NON-GUARDED, AT-YOUR-OWN-RISK swims.
