Masters Swim Team

The Master Swim Team is for all abilities of swimmers from the novice to the competitive: to be able to train in a group environment, to develop more proficient stroke technique, and to be better conditioned. Whether you are swimming for fitness or training for a triathlon or ocean race, our swim coach is there to provide you what you need. The program runs year-round: rain or shine!

Practices are conducted with a coach on deck. Swimmers are encouraged to improve stroke technique and increase fitness levels. Practices are geared to accomplish these goals. Anyone seriously considering joining should be able to swim a 500 yard freestyle, comfortably, without stopping. Team activities include participation in sanctioned and supervised open ocean races on Oahu.

The Masters Swimming program is currently offered at two branches: Nu'uanu and Windward. The pools are standard for short course masters swimming with 6 lanes of 25 yards in length. Regulation backstroke flags are in place and pools are guarded with certified guards at all practices. Pool equipment supplied includes kick boards and pull buoys. It is open and free to all YMCA Fitness Members 18 years of age and older.
