In the series, you’ll work with a USA Swimming Certified Coach and learn the basics of group swimming including:
What is basic swim etiquette in a group setting? Within a lane?
How do I circle swim properly?
How do I swim in a lane with people who are faster/slower than I am?
What is a “set” or “send-off” and all the other swimming lingo/abbreviations used?
How do I know what to do or how fast to go?
Do I have to use a pace clock? What are the benefits of using a pace clock?
Do I have to do the other strokes? Why?
What if I have an injury or other condition that may impact my workout?
How can I adjust a workout to suit my current level?
The format of the class is workout and teaching based. You will be in a small group of Masters Foundations swimmers and the coach will lead the workout like a Masters Swim class. Expect to swim between 1,000-2,000 yards as the workouts progress each week.
