Masters Swim Team

YWCA Minneapolis has its own masters swim program, representing swimmers age 18 to 80 and a full range of speeds and experience.

  • Practices are offered for a wide range of interests:

    • General workout
    • Triathlon stroke work and training
    • Senior masters
  • 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.
