Adult Swimming

MASK Masters (Adult Swimming)

Now introducing MASK Masters! MASK has been around for over 30 years and is one of the most sought after competitive age group swim programs on the South Shore and is now opening their arms to Masters Swimming. Masters Swim is a place for adults 18 yrs and older to get a swim workout in while training beside fellow swimmers with a team atmosphere around them. Swimmers should know all four strokes (even if your technique is still a work in progress) though we will primarily train with freestyle and backstroke. Masters is an ideally training situation for triathletes training for triathlons or other competitions as well as adults getting/staying in shape. Trying to build up your swim stamina? Masters is right for you! All abilities/speeds welcome!
