Additional Details

Unlike other teams in the state, enrollment in our masters swim team includes practices at three different sites, YWCA Downtown, Midtown and Uptown.

We also have outdoor practices from June 9 until late August at the Richfield Municipal Pool.

Practices are held in morning, midday and evening throughout the week and weekend.

Signing up gives you access to over 15 hours of weekly practice options!

We have an award-winning coaching team with top level technical expertise and experience.

Program participants gain access to open and closed-session swims on Cedar Lake with our program.

Nonmembers will be allowed to enter the facility 15 minutes prior to the start of practice and must exit the facility within 30 minutes of practice ending.

Practices are limited to six swimmers per lane, established by speed at the start of practice.

Participants can attend any practice they choose.
