Improve Your Swim Technique, Endurance, And Speed



YSST Masters is an adult (18+) aquatic fitness program that promotes a healthy lifestyle through swimming. Our program consists of all levels of swimmers ---- fitness swimmers, triathletes and former age group and college swimmers.

The program offers organized and coached swim practices for all abilities. If you can swim at least eight (8) lengths of the indoor pool in the crawl stroke, we invite you to join our program. The 6:00 a.m. practice on Tuesday and Thursday focuses on technique, while the other practices focus on more competitive workouts with a mix of aerobic and anaerobic training sets.
