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.)

Holiday Interim Workout Schedule:

Note: The Fall session ends Sat Dec 19th. The Winter session starts Mon Jan 4th.

This year we cannot do “pay as you go” for the interims, due to the limited number of spots and keeping the same swimmers together. Thus, there are four mini-sessions of three workouts each (a total of 10 workouts) that you may sign up for. Registration starts at noon tomorrow, Sat Dec 12. On-line registration link.

Registration:
