Our guideline is that swimmers must be able to swim 1000m in an hour (any mix of strokes, including breaks), and that they can already swim 2-3 of the competitive strokes (i.e. freestyle [front crawl] and breaststroke or backstroke) to join our Masters club. (It is not necessary to already be able to swim the minimum distance shown as the usual workout length in some of the publications [e.g. 1800-3500m]). Our Masters group caters to a very wide range of abilities, ages and goals. The large majority of Carleton's Masters swimmers do not compete but enjoy the training for its fitness and social aspects. There is an opportunity to compete if you are interested and we do have some very accomplished competitive Masters members. (Private lessons taught by a Masters coach are also available.)

Registration:

For all programs and memberships, register at the Carleton University Athletics Customer Service Office (Main Floor) or Welcome Centre or call 613-520-4480. You can register on-line (convenience fee applies) at http://www.carleton.ca/athletics for memberships only. As staff must confirm your membership status for Masters, you must register in person or by phone for Masters. Note that, space permitting, pro-rated prices are offered after each session starts. Contact the Welcome Centre (above) for all details on pro-rated prices.
