What is U.S. Masters Swimming?

USMS is a national membership-operated nonprofit organization that provides membership benefits to nearly 60,000 Masters swimmers across the country. These benefits include insuranceSWIMMER magazinesanctioned events, and many others. USMS and its 52 Local Masters Swimming Committees (LMSCs) provide direct support to more than 1,500 Masters Swimming clubs and workout groups. Structure and organization of USMS programs vary and are driven by factors such as pool availability, instructor or coach availability, community support, and finances. The majority of locations offering Masters Swimming programs have coaches on deck. Coaches write workouts and provide feedback and instruction.

Love to swim?  The sky is the limit.  Most Masters swimmers do not wish to compete and with that in mind Sedona Masters offers individual lap swimming, structured workouts and stroke and technique assistance for any who desire it.  Our practice times vary depending upon the season, but there are many opportunities to get in the water.  Come join the fun, make new friends and get in the best shape of your life.  Swimming is the best activity for cardio vascular fitness, flexibility, endurance, strength building with little or no impact on your joints!  Get wet today!!!!
Fall Session - 2016:  We have joined forces with the Sedona Parks and Recreation Department for the fall of 2016.  Their oversight and management affords us many opportunities that we could not achieve by remaining under the Sedona Swim Team umbrella.  They are able to provide flexible hours, lifeguards, a coach on deck and equipment that we would not have been able to afford.  These changes may allow us to pick up new members and give us an opportunity to swim all winter.  Lap swimming will be taking place at various times during our scheduled practices and there will be a coach available for modified workouts to meet all needs and stroke instructions when requested.
The fees are $50.00 per month or a daily drop in fee of $5.00.  Since the month of November is shorter, that months’ fee would be $30.00.  For further information you can go to: http://www.sedonaaz.gov/your-government/departments/parks-recreation/facilities/pool/masters-swim
