Become an ace swimmer and get a great workout! Masters Swim is not a swim lesson class. Designed for adults who know how to swim, swimmers will improve stroke technique while getting some serious exercise! Swimmers can also train for triathlons or competitions. Class is taught in a swim team style, and instructors are great motivators, offering encouragement to help you power through these intense workouts.


You’ll need:

Swimsuit – We recommend a jammer (thigh-length racing suit) for men, and a one-piece nylon or lycra racing suit for women.

Goggles – An extra pair is encouraged, and we also sell them at the front desk

Swimcap – Optional, but encouraged


Getting Gear: Big 5 usually carries competitive swim gear. Or try online:,,,, etc.


Register at the YMCA member service desk or online above
