Swim with Purpose!  Get in shape, to lose a few pounds, to meet new people, have fun,be a better swimmer for that triathlon, whatever, the purpose is yours.

For competitions, we join with other area Masters Swimmers to compete as the Gulf Coast Pirate Swimming.  Competition is optional but is a great way to test yourself!
