The Masters Swim program is available for adult swimmers at all levels, however, it is NOT a learn-to-swim program. Participants should be able to swim the length of the pool (25m) and back without touching the bottom or stopping for more than a few quick breaths at the turn. Throughout the program, each participant will work at his or her own pace in a lane with 3 to 4 others who swim at approximately the same speed.
The program runs for 6 weeks, on Tuesday and Thursday nights, beginning on June 19 and continuing through July 26. The program reaches capacity when 25 swimmers have enrolled. We have reached capacity for the last 5 years, and expect to again this year, so register as soon as possible. The fee for the 6 week session is $70. Checks should be made to KRST and left in the designated envelope in the guard house.
Under the supervision and guidance of a swim coach, the Master swimmers will focus on improving their stroke mechanics, swimming efficiency, and cardiovascular fitness. Each one hour practice session begins with a warm up that includes work with the kick boards. The warm up is followed by drills to improve aspects of each specific stroke—freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke, and butterfly. Each swimmer, upon request, will receive individual feedback and lots of encouragement!
Swimmers may double up with a partner or spouse and share a spot.
