With over 200 swimmers, we welcome all adults over 18 who enjoy swimming in a coached workout environment. With experience levels ranging from novice to veteran, our diverse group of swimmers enjoys opportunities for fitness and camaraderie as well as training for triathlons and competitive swim meets.
