Manta Ray Swim Club

Our program is based on 4 basic swimming disciplines:
1. EFFICIENCY: For those of you who know how to swim but are more interested in stroke efficiency and better fitness and would like some instruction with improving your swimming ability but without a competitive approach,
breaststroke, and butterfly.
2. COMPETITION We are registered as the Manta Ray Swim Club with USMS and if interested in competition we also provide a schedule of local swim meets, regional and national events and e-postal events.
3. TRIATHLON - A number of our swimmers are triathletes and a few are Ironman level competitors. Special training and stroke were are provided.
4. OPEN WATER - Living in southern California we are blessed to have great open water and ocean swimming events. Specialized stroke work is provided for swimmers interested in this area of competition as well.

Y members do not have to pay extra and non-members can buy a monthly program of $50/mo. with the first visit free. Workouts are scheduled for 5:30 AM to 7:00 AM Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. We are just beginning a noon hour workout on the same days for those who cannot make the early morning workouts and these start at 11:00 AM and run through noon.  Periodic Saturday morning stroke, dive, and turn clinics are available on a one-on-one basis and are coordinated with the coach.;
