I used to compete at the national level.  Will your club challenge me?

Delta Masters Swim Club offers a minimum of five lanes each session and well-planned work-outs that can sustain your competitive edge.  (So, Yes)

 

I am a runner and want to complete a triathlon.  Will your club help me?

If there is enough interest, work-outs can be adjusted to offer customized swim training for triathletes. Improve your stroke; improve your time. It is important to let the coach know if you are training for an event; particularly in the spring when triathlon training picks up.

 

Do I have to compete?

Some masters swimmers never compete; some choose to participate in two or three meets each year to focus their training.   It's up to you.  Swim meets are open to all masters swimmers who enjoy the challenge of competition.  Several meets occur in the lower mainland and throughout the province.  Swim meet events are planned so that swimmers of similar abilities compete together, and ribbons are awarded in each five-year age group.  There is no upper age limit.
