Rocket Aquatics Masters Program    
Rocket Aquatics(RA) Masters strives to maintain an environment that strikes a healthy balance between fitness, fun, and competition. All levels of adult swimmers are welcome: from beginning fitness swimmers(must be able to swim 200 yards non-stop) to competitive pool and open water swimmers, first time triathletes to the experienced Iron Man finishers. RA Masters is the perfect training program for anyone who loves the swimming lifestyle regardless of your swim experience or fitness level. The role of the coaching staff is to design a program that will allow all members to reach their individual goals. We believe that improving stroke technique and providing purposeful training sets are key elements to team and individual success. There will be different workouts to choose from and instruction provided based on skill level.  We also believe that having fun is just as important!

Masters Group FAQs:

Not sure if Masters Swim is right for you? Check out the FAQ below from U.S. Masters: "Masters" sounds intimidating... is this really for me?

The word "Masters" was first applied to adults who participated in track and field, and was later adopted in organized adult swimming. In swimming, Masters simply means 18 and older.

Do I have to compete to be a Masters swimmer?
No. When organized adult swimming started to become popular in the 1960s, the intent was that adults would swim to stay in shape. But early organizers knew that some adults would want to compete, so it is offered. About 25% of the nearly 60,000 US Masters Swim members enter pool or open water competitions. The greater percentage of USMS members do not compete.

But I'm not fast enough or in shape enough to be a Masters swimmer?
This is something a lot of Masters Coaches hear. However, most Masters coaches and swimmers don’t care how fast you are. In nearly every program, there are others of similar ability, or those who started where you are and have improved. Don't let your percevied ability, or lack thereof, hold you back. Although it’s important to have a physical examination before starting any exercise routine, you don’t need to be in top shape to start Masters swimming - Masters swimming will help you get there!  

I'm a triathlete - why should I join Masters Swimming?
Many triathletes, including the world-class Jarrod Shoemaker, Gwen Jorgensen and Sara McLarty, join USMS programs because training with swimmers is the best way to improve the swim portion of the tri. Masters coaches also provide technique instruction and interval training with a group.
