Masters Swim at the YMCA of Northern Colorado was developed to attract a wide range of swimmers — from long-time competitors to adults who are just getting their feet wet. The program caters to those who want to improve swimming technique and take advantage of swimming’s fitness benefits, including lap swimmers, triathletes, those who wish to compete and those who are just looking for an excellent workout. During Masters Swim at the Y, coaches will provide speed and endurance training, motivation, drills, stroke technique and fun workouts to help improve ease and efficiency in the water. The YMCA Masters Swim program is for adults 18+.

The Masters Swim program is registered through United States Masters Swimming (USMS). You do not have to register with USMS to swim in the program, however only USMS registered members may participate in USMS events.
