Master's Swimming

The Masters swimming program is not swimming lessons but a place to workout and to get the most out of a "competitive style" workout. The goal of this program is to provide a quality environment where you can improve your swimming skills and a place for you to condition through a structured swim workout.
A structured lane seeding system is followed. Other master swimmers will help you with seeding and as your fitness level increases you can always move up in the lane rotation.
 
Lane seeding is as follows:
Lane 1 1:05 - 1:20
Lane 2 1:21 - 1:30
Lane 3 1:31 - 1:40
Lane 4 1:41 - 1:50
Lane 5 1:51 - 2:00
Lane 6 2:01 - 2:10
