Sun City West Masters Swimming
Fitness, Competition & Friendship
About Our Team
The Sun City West Masters swim team has been supporting all levels of swimming fitness since the 1980s. We are a group for all swimmers from recreational to competitive. We swim twice per week in 1-hour coached workouts. Many of our swimmers also compete in Masters meets and other local senior meets. While we are not a “learn-to-swim” program, we welcome all levels of swimmers. Most of our swimmers have never been on a team prior to Sun City West Masters and discover they really enjoy friendly competition and our expert coaching to improve their personal fitness. Come out and join us for a couple workouts to see how you like it!
About Our Coach
Coach Howard enjoys the challenges of the masters swimming programs and the older swimmer. Through his encouragement Sun City West swimmers are winning medals, improving their strokes and learning new techniques to travel through the water efficiently. Members have fun mastering the freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly in structured workouts and clinics. The Sun City West Masters swim club is fortunate to have a coach with Lee Howard’s varied experiences and accomplishments.
I love being part of the team because it’s more fun to swim with other people, a coach helps me get better and structured workouts improve my fitness faster than swimming on my own. Being a swimmer rounds out my other hobbies of sailing and biking and helps me achieve my goal of aging gracefully!
Why They Joined Masters
I’ve been a member of the team about 3 years. It’s a very dedicated group focused on conditioning and skill development. The majority of members have never swam competitively as adults and we are amazed at how much we’ve improved. The best part about the club is sharing time with a wonderful group of aspiring athletes who are so supportive. If you have ever wanted to do more with swimming, this is the club for you.
Until I joined the SCW swim team, I had never been on any sports team. I love the instruction we receive, and challenging and varied workouts by top-notch coaching. For me, it’s the inclusion and acceptance I feel with all the other swimmers who are always ready to help when needed. It’s a great club to be a part of in SCW!
