Aquatics – Master Swim Program

The Masters program is designed for adult lap swimmers who want to swim under the guidance of a coach.  This program offers participants a chance to practice competitive swimming techniques and learn drills for all four competitive strokes.  There are three training levels targeted for swimmers of varying abilities and fitness levels.  Each group works at its own pace.  This is a great way for triathletes to stay in shape in the winter months, and for former and novice swimmers to stay in shape without the physical stress of many other types of exercise.

Masters swimming is for adults 19 and older.  The group is guaranteed up to three lanes per day, depending on the number of Masters swimmers in the pool.  Masters runs uninterrupted throughout the year and operates on a quarterly schedule of 12-13 weeks per session.  This group breaks for the YMCA pool shut down in August and will not operate if the Y is closed or cancels classes due to poor weather, all other days the Masters will have practice.  Participants must be able to swim at least 25 yards (one length of the Darien YMCA pool) of freestyle (front crawl) and backstroke unassisted and have familiarity with breaststroke and butterfly.  For more information please call Masters Coach Jason Cochran at 655-8228 ext. 1306 or email
