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.)

Fall/Winter Interim Workout Schedule:

Note: The Fall session ends Thu Dec 20th. The Winter session starts Wed Jan 2nd.

We will have five “pay-as-you-go” $5 workouts between the end of the Fall session and beginning of the Winter session as per the schedule below. The interim swims are open to those registered for Fall and/or Winter Masters, and swimmers may also bring a guest. Note that those who missed most of their 7:10pm workout on Tue Oct 2nd may attend one of these workouts for free, as may those who missed their 8:30am workout on Wed Oct 24th due to a power outage. Give your name to the coach if this applies to you. Otherwise Masters and their guests should each purchase a public swim pass for $5 at the Welcome Centre and get a paper receipt. Write your name on the receipt and give it to the coach.
