Black (Advanced) - Advanced swimmers practice for longer periods amd may include dry-land warm-up.

Masters (Adults 18+) - This program will provide organized workouts and skill improvement for all abilities. Participants should have an understanding of the basic strokes & be able to swim approximately 45 minutes.
