Masters Swimming simply means anyone 18 & older can join the program.  Learn how to circle swim, read the clock and get definitions for common swimming jargon. Swimming is different than running, cycling and other endurance activities. Regardless of your fitness level, it can take months to get into good swimming shape. Don’t be shy to ask for help.  Our coaches will guide you to a lane with similiar abilities and can modify any practice to accommodate special needs or limitations. Master’s swimmers and coaches are a welcoming community and happy to have new members. Camaraderie and new friends are two of the best benefits of swimming regularly with a group.

Swimming is a lifetime sport, so whether you are swimming for health benefits, training to compete at the Master’s level or for your first triathlon, we have the program for you.  We currently offer 10-swim practice per week with a coach on deck to provide instruction and feedback. 

While you are not required to be a USMS registered swimmer to train at FAST, there are a lot of benefits to join. Masters Swimming is a national membership-operated nonprofit that provides membership benefits to nearly 65,000 Masters swimmers across the country. These benefits include insurance, SWIMMER Magazine, sanctioned events and more.  USMS and its 52 Local Masters Swimming Committees (LMSC’s), provide direct support to more than 1,500 Masters Swimming Clubs and workout groups. You can find more information on their website.  https://www.usms.org
