Why do you want to swim Masters?
Do you want to continue in a sport that you're passionate about... You want the health benefits of swimming... Are you looking for structured workouts... Looking to improve your stroke technique and swim more efficiency... Enjoy being in a group setting striving to achieve your goals with others... Want to be coached by coaches who are very passionate about swimming... who know swimming!
Then we may be the team for you.
The North Toronto Masters Swim Club is now in it's 26th year of making waves. We swim out of three locations (two pools are within a 8 minute drive of one another) during the fall, winter and spring. In the Summer, from mid June to late August we offer a drop in swim program in the Beaches. If you are a swimmer or triathlete who is interested in getting into better swimming shape and improving your stroke to swim more efficient, or a ex-Olympic swimmer who wants to stay in shape, we have a work-out for you!!
We are not a learn to swim program! We are a High Performance Masters Swim Club with High Performance Coaching!! We have a mix of swimmers on the team - ranging from ex-Olympic Team Members, World Masters Record Holders, Pro Tri-athletes and individuals who want better themselves in the sport of swimming - our coaching staff is there to help everyone achieve their goals.
The minimum requirement to join the NTMSC is you must be 18 years of age, be able to swim a set of 4 x 100 @2:10 pace time and be able to swim 600 metres freestyle non stop. The reason for this requirement is that everyone is at a set minimum standard for the workout written by the Coaches. It also makes the lanes flow smoothly and safely as we progress from Fast to Fastest in each of the lanes.
2018/19 Season starts the week of September 18, 2018 and finishes the week of June 10th, 2019
Membership Fees* are based on the following 3 Groups:
Group #1: Mondays and Wednesdays which has a strong emphasis on high end swimming. This group is for experienced competitive swimmers.
Group #2: Tuesdays and Thursdays which have a few lanes set aside for competitive swimmers, but the majority of the emphasis is going to be stroke improvement and swimming efficiency for Triathletes. You can see more information on how we coach Triathletes in the pool at the Masters Swimming Canada Website!
