Gladstone U.S. Masters Swimming is a year-round training program for adults (18+ years old) interested in competitive swimming, triathlon training and fitness swimming - Gladstone U.S. Masters Swimming. The word Masters can be intimidating or misleading but in organized adult swimming, Masters simply means 18 and older. This strong group is comprised of swimmers of various backgrounds. From triathletes, to amateur swimmers, to ex-college athletes there is a spot for everyone on the team.
Gladstone Masters practice/train together, but the team also offers participants a chance to participate in swim meets as well as other events througout the year. Competitions are not required, but are offered for those adults who want to compete. Approximately 25% of nearly 60,000 USMS members enter pool or open water competitions.
Workouts are provided and a coach will be on deck for each practice session. We are lucky to have one of the best coaches in the region for the Gladstone Masters. Doug is both a great technician of the sport of swimming, but also your biggest supporter as you set and reach your goals!
