Masters Coach: 

Coach Kieran Schaefer leads the SMAC Masters Program.  Kieran is available via email

Our Program: 

We are a diverse group of swimmers that includes former competitive swimmers, tri-athletes, fitness swimmers, and newer swimmers looking for conditioning and stroke instruction. SMAC's philosophy as a team is to teach good stroke technique, and masters is no exception. To facilitate this, the coaches plan practices by themed months. This allows the coaches to teach skills over an extended amount of time and gives the swimmers time to develop the skills and make improvements before moving to a different skill.

Masters Program Information:

Any interested person aged 18 and older can become a masters swimmer.
