Try Masters Swimming Week is an initiative to introduce the many benefits of swimming and U.S. Masters Swimming membership to people who want to learn to swim, swim for fitness, or compete in swimming.

Between Sat., June 1, and Mon., June 10, we're encouraging USMS members to bring their family, friends, and co-workers to practice. We're also encouraging coaches to welcome potential new swimmers or invite local lap swimmers to their workouts for Try Masters Swimming Week.

Nervous About Trying?

USMS welcomes swimmers of all abilities, whether they’re looking to improve their overall fitness, swim just for fun, develop technique, or just learning to swim for the first time.

For brand-new swimmers, our Masters Swimming 101 article series has tips about what to bring, common swimming jargon, how to circle swim, read the clock, and more. Questions? We have answers! Visit our Masters Swimming FAQ.
