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 Lee Howard started his coaching career in San Jose, California with age-group swimmers. Over his professional career he worked with high school and college teams, and club teams in California and Oregon. His collegiate coaching includes Southern Oregon University in Ashland, Oregon where he was the swimming and water polo coach for more than 28 years. Coach Lee enjoys coaching masters swimmers who swim for the simple joy of swimming.
The Club has two coached workouts per week. Contact the Club (see contact information below) for more information about the current workout schedule.
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!
