Masters Swimming coming to Sportsplex!


Starting January 4th, 2016 US Masters Swimming (USMS) will be offered to the Sportsplex community.  What is Masters swimming?  It’s whatever you want to make it.  It is not just for hard-core competitive swimmers. (Seventy-five percent of Masters Swimmers never enter a meet.)  USMS is about health, fitness, learning and FUN!  Swimming is the one sport you can do forever – easy on the joints while providing a tremendous workout.  USMS caters to ALL skill levels for 18-and-over adults, from those brand new to swimming, to triathletes, to the advanced competitive swimmer.


Each swimmer is able to learn at his/her own pace.  Practices will be tailored to your goals – whether it is to burn calories, learn new strokes, improve your current strokes, improve your triathlon swim or open-water time, masters will get you where you need to be.


Masters swimming sessions will be offered Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 5:30-6:30am, 8:30-9:30am and Noon-1:00pm.  Membership is just $50/ month ($40 for Sportsplex members) – join in January and receive $10 off your first month!  Have family in town just for a few days?  We have a drop in fee of $10 per session for anyone looking to get a good workout in.


Our US Masters-Certified Coach is Jerry O’Donnell.  He is an active member of USMS, both as a coach and as a swimmer.  He occasionally competes in swim meets and triathlons and has been teaching private swim lessons and clinics for several years.  Jerry’s son currently swims at the College of William & Mary and is a 2016 US Olympic Trials Qualifier.


Jerry is excited to build a great workout group for all swimmers at the Sportsplex and we are looking forward to the experience and enthusiasm he will bring to this new program.
