Welcome To TEME!

Temescal Aquatic Masters is a United States Masters Swimming team (team code TEME). We welcome swimmers of all abilities, from recreational swimmers who want feedback and encouragement to collegiate swimmers interested in training for meets and open water swims. Our coaches love swimming and helping adults become better swimmers. Learn more about Temescal Masters.

Swim-a-thon raises dough for kids!

TEME wrapped up the 2016 Swim-a-thon at Live Oak Pool on Saturday October 15th by raising over $2,900.00 for the OPR Summer Swim League to help fund Oakland youth swim teams!  It was a day of fantastic food, fun and prizes!  There is still time to donate!  Contact Orin for more information.

Thank you to all who swam, volunteered and cheered!


2016 Open Water Season a phenominal success!!!

TEME had more swimmers participate in open water swims (Barryessa, Donner, Whiskeytown, etc.), than ever and ended the 2016 Open Water season in second place, ahead of Walnut Creek Masters, Davis Aquatics Masters and Santa Cruz Masters - behind only the Olympic Club!

TEME Theme for 2016: Participation!!

As head coach I want to try to lead our team to be great(er)!

I have listened to all kinds of feedback from TEME members and one thing I consistently hear the word "Vision". Many people seem to want a vision or a common goal to shoot for as a team. That's why I have decided to have a theme for our team every year moving forward, starting now!

We'll Miss You, Karin

Karin Hurley was the head coach of Temescal Masters for 13 years until she retired in 2012. She built the team from a scrappy group of people getting together to swim into a vibrant community of over 200 swimmers. She touched the lives of hundreds of people along the way. Everyone who came to the team was greeted with a friendly welcome. Faster swimmers were encouraged to focus on their stroke and slower swimmers were given encouragement to improve their stroke. We are all indebted to her.
