Who Can Swim Masters?

Swimmers from age 18 well into their 80s--fitness swimmers, triathletes, past high school & collegiate swimmers competitive or not - - swim with our team. Anyone who has a passion for swimming will fit in. If you're curious, stop in and see what it is all about!

What goes on at practice?

During our three week night practices swimmers have one hour to train with a coach on deck by focusing on each swimmer's fitness, technique, & speed while avoiding injury. Each swimmer is likely to have specific needs. Coach Mike is more than willing to assist all swimmers to meet their goals.

When Coach Mike cannot make it to a practice--which is rare--we will try to have a coach present to aid in your training, but often times it is difficult to secure a sub at the last minute.  

When are the sessions?

Practice held on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 5:30-6:30 p.m.

Why train with the Masters?

Swimmers join GRCC's Masters team to maintain or improve swim skills and abilities in all four strokes; to avoid injury by fine tuning stroke skills; to participate in US Masters Swim Meets or Open Water swim events (all swimmers may, but are never required or expected to compete); to join like minded active individuals in a healthy positive environment; to become inspired to set goals and develop a life long fitness lifestyle.

Where is practice held?

Grand Rapids Community College- GRCC Ford Fieldhouse pool, 111 Lyon St Ne, Grand Rapids MI 49503

How much does a session cost?

A swim club fee of $145 per participant is collected each session to pay for pool operation and group leadership.
