The new swim caps look great!
Coast Swim Team registration is now open! To join the team please fill out the webform below.
This year the registration fee is $39 and pays for your membership to the various swimming organizations that make masters swimming possible. None of this money goes to Coast Swim Team.
We have a spot on the team for you whether you are a new swimmer looking to challenge yourself, an experienced swimmer looking to compete again, or a triathlete looking to gain swim racing experience.
Since most of us do not have a swimming background we try to keep the meets focused on fun, supporting each other, and simply doing our best. Masters swimming is a very inclusive environment with a wide range of abilities. Trust me, you will not be embarrassed or out of your depth here. Bah boom, pun intended! See video below.
As your coach I will help prepare you for each race as best I can. Our swimmers will take part in most of the Freestyle events and some will also try Backstroke, Breaststroke, Butterfly and IM too!
All swimmers will be called upon for relay races! These are fun team bonding events and not to be taken seriously. I mean, swim as fast as you can for the team, but enjoyment and banter are more important than performance in these events.
Diving and flip turns are not mandatory! You are welcome to start each race from in the water. During the warm up you will have a chance to practice diving, and I am hoping to offer diving clinics later this year so we confidently leap off the blocks with style.
