Beginning Lap Swim/Bridge to Masters

The beginning lap swim class is for adults who want to improve their swimming so they can start lap swimming as a regular form of exercise.

Can you swim the length of the pool (25 yards)? Do you find yourself out of breath at the other end of the pool? Do you want to learn another stroke (breaststroke, backstroke, butterfly)?

We will focus on technique and endurance swimming freestyle (front crawl) while learning lap swim etiquette and other strokes. For those who are interested, you can transition into the Masters swim program.

Requirements

You must be able to swim 25 yards continuously – any stroke, any speed.
(If you cannot swim 25 yards yet, but are close, the coach is available for private coaching to get you ready for the class)

All participants must be current USMS members (Yearly fee required)

Cost

The fee schedule is under review and will be finalized at the same time as the schedule.

Class Schedule

We are currently planning for potential classes in summer of 2021, depending on pool/instructor availability and ongoing COVID restrictions.

Private lessons/coaching is also available. Sign up with your coach.
All fees must be paid prior to private lessons.
