Masters Swim is a structured and coached lap swim program designed to help avid recreational and competitive swimmers improve their stroke, form, ability, endurance and stamina. While joining the Y's Master Swim Program is a great workout- it is also a way to meet like-minded fellow swimmers and new friends. The best part - swimming tones your whole body, and has the added benefit of being low impact!

MY Y-STORY

Master's Swimmer, Toni:

Toni started Masters at about age 30, started competing at the tender age of 50. Since then,she's competed in 2 other meets in addition to three triathlons this year alone: Davis, Coronado, and McGrath.

Originally she thought Masters meant she had to be a Master at something, was glad to learn this was not the case! She knew how to do freestyle, but learned the other three strokes in Masters. In the pool she works on stroke technique and breathing; but in the ocean, swims for pleasure. Spring- Fall you can find her swimming in the ocean also. She won first place in her age group in Tiki Swim, a rough water swim in Oceanside. Her kids swim (Heartland, High School/ Water polo) and she became a stroke and turn judge as a result.

Masters includes people of all levels, and they all encourage each other a lot, there is a high level of camaraderie. Our coach is flexible; she can modify the workout to your level and goals. She focuses on improving your stroke and you can learn from the feedback others receive. Swimming is an activity we can do for the rest of our lives. It keeps us fit for every other activity we occasionally decide to do, like biking, skiing, hiking, kayaking, etc.
