If you are aged over 25 and wish to gain better health, better fitness or make new friends through swimming, the Masters squad at the City of Southampton Swimming Club is ideal for you. Whilst previous club training experience is preferred, the squad tries to encompasses a whole range of abilities from casual fitness swimming to highly organised competitive swimming. Everyone has his or her reason for swimming; health, general fitness, camaraderie or just for fun, how far you go is up to you.
The Masters squad has approximately 60 members. We have three dedicated sessions at The Quays per week, with the training program set by the Head Coach of the club. The main club session is on Thursdays from 20:00 to 21:00, and both this and the Tuesday (19:30 to 20:30) and Friday (18.00-19.00) night sessions are coached by James MacTavish. The lanes are organised by ability, so even if you haven’t swum for years there will be a level to suit you.
Along with other members of the squad, you will have the opportunity to take part in a range of competitions throughout the year. During the past year members from the squad have very successfully competed at the County, Regional and National championships and been selected to represent Hampshire in Inter-County events. There are also a number of social and training events organised throughout the year.
