Trying Masters before you join

      • If you are a UVAC member, you can try a Masters practice for free and then make a decision about joining the team (and upgrade to a UVAC Masters membership). Email to request a trial practice.
      • If you are not a UVAC member, you must purchase a minimum of one month of UVAC Masters membership (~$119). This is in accordance with our COVID policy of requiring all facility users to be members.  No day passes are allowed.  Once you purchase your UVAC Masters membership, email to request lanes.

COVID-19 Masters Protocols

      • Masters lanes must be booked in advance via head coach Barbara Hummel. This is to ensure that everyone gets a chance to swim, and so that swimmers are adjacent to speed peers.
      • To request lanes, email before Friday at 5 pm for lanes throughout the following week. State day(s) and practice time(s) desired.
      • Masters lanes are limited, and are limited to one swimmer per lane, so you may not get to swim at every practice you request.
      • Practices are 60 minutes, which includes approximately 5 minutes for entry and exit and 50 minutes for swimming.
      • Practices are uncoached at this time, except for the 9:00-10:00 am practices on Tue/Th. Most practices are led from in the water by an experienced member of the team.   Accommodations are made for various levels of ability.
      • Workouts are emailed in advance. You need to print the workout and bring it to the pool in your own ZIplock bag, or cue it for viewing on your phone.
      • Arrive ahead of time. If you’re late, your session will be shorter than 1 hour.
      • The pool schedule is tightly booked with many programs, so you need to gather your gear and be out of the pool area before the next program is scheduled to begin.
      • Masters swimmers must adhere to all UVAC COVID-19 protocols. Masks must be worn at all times in UVAC common areas, except when swimming but they must be worn on the pool deck, in the locker rooms.
      • Wear your suit to the pool…and from the pool if possible. Locker
        rooms are available for a quick shower and change, but space is
        limited and individual lockers are not available.
      • Bring your own gear! Workouts can be done without gear, but fins, pull buoy and kickboard are sometimes recommended.  No public-use equipment is available, and there is no sharing of gear.  You can buy equipment in the UVAC Pro Shop or at Stateline Sports.
      • Use UVAC Front Entrance to access all Masters practices.
