Maryland Masters swims at UMBC's 25 yard indoor pool and 50 meter outdoor pool. Workouts are varied and accommodate all levels of swimmers, fitness to competitive to open water. Please come give us a try!
Whether you are looking to drop time in your swim leg of your Ironman or wanting to improve your stroke, Maryland Masters Swim Team at UMBC has a lane with your name on it.
With 6 workouts each week the only thing stopping you from jumping in the water is setting your alarm. The morning practices have around 25-30 people in 8 lanes. The evening practices have about 12 people between 4 lanes. There's a 2 week trial to give you time to see if our team fits your schedule. We also offer a punch card, if you aren't sure how often you can make it to the pool.
Our coach has been with us for 11 years, is USMS certified Level 1 and 2. Her commitment to the team is evident in her varied workouts, stroke advice and occasional fun activities.
As a team we host three meets a year and as a team member, volunteering at those meets helps build camaraderie. There also is a summer team picnic and winter brunch. These opportunities to get together give us a chance to talk about the direction of the team. We typically set a goal meet for every spring.
Hope you'll stop by soon for some vertical kicking and sunrises!
