Prime Aquatics Masters Program

 

Welcome! The Prime Aquatics Masters swim program is for many types of adult (age 18+) swimmers, offering regularly scheduled coached group workouts. We promote health and well-being through our love of swimming. We want swimmers to have fun, make progress towards their goals and be a part of our supportive community.

We have competitive triathletes, open water swimmers and USMS pool champions, as well as former collegiate swimmers and folks very new to the pool learning new strokes.  Our coaches strive to meet every swimmer where they are at and help them achieve the swim goals with a variety of workouts. Swimmers don't have to execute perfect flip turns, dives and strokes; it's more important that each person brings an open mind, a willingness to try something new once in awhile and simply, a love of the craft.  We provide an environment where you can learn and practice the rest.

We can't wait to meet you at the pool!

 

Pricing:          

Monthly Fee: $75 - Your cc (Visa or MasterCard only) will be charged on the 1st of the month.

REGISTER HERE for MASTERS, using a LAPTOP or DESKTOP COMPUTER (not a mobile device)!  ALL swimmers must register regardless of payment method or type of membership; this ensures we can communicate with you and that you are insured when you swim with us.

 

US Masters Swimming (USMS):

Prime Aquatics (PA) is proud to be a USMS Registered Club.  Prime Aquatics features USMS and USMS-ALTS (Adult Learn to Swim) certified coaches, in addition to USA Swimming certified coaches.

All Prime Masters swimmers must be current members of USMS. An new annual membership is $60 (paid by individual members), and you may transfer membership from another club to Prime Aquatics (contact USMS directly). Click here to register.

PA masters swimmers are encouraged to participate in masters swim meets and open water swim events. Find event information including registration links at the Southeastern LMSC Zone website or USMS.org.

 

New Swimmers and Guests:

All guests and new swimmers that are NOT current USMS members must apply for a USMS 30-day Trial Membership. 

CLICK HERE for the Paper Trial Membership Form to print, complete and bring to your first workout.

CLICK HERE for the Electronic Trial Membership Form that will be transmitted via email.

All new swimmers are welcome to a one-week FREE trial to join any masters practices, meet the coaches and other swimmers and decide if our program is a good fit.  Following the trial, new swimmers should register with our team on this site (see above links). New swimmers that are not already USMS members will also need an annual USMS membership within 30 days (the trial membership will expire).

Guests are welcome to join practices. There is a drop-in fee of $10, payable by cash or check to the Masters Coach on deck. Guests may also purchase a Punch Card for multiple visits. Guests must be current USMS annual members or complete a USMS 30-Day Trial Membership Form.
