Why Masters swimming?
More and more of us realize that regular exercise contributes to good physical and mental health, whatever our age. Swimming is one of the safest and best ways to exercise. It doesn't abuse the joints with sudden shocks and pounding and benefits the cardiovascular system, reduces cholesterol and positively influences muscle tone, endurance and emotional well-being. Besides, it's fun! Masters swimming provides excellent opportunities to exercise with others, to improve swimming skills and stamina, and to enjoy doing it.
Masters swimmings' prime credo is fitness. Masters swimming means wanting to be fit, having the pleasure of being with other swimmers sharing these interests while doing it, and for some, releasing those competitive juices from time to time. Masters Swimming encourages competition for swimmers of all abilities who like to challenge themselves and others at swim meets. Thus, by being a member of a Masters swim club there is an opportunity not only for fitness, but to meet and make new friends, to compete and to travel (excerpt from the Masters Swimming Association of BC).
The City of Kamloops currently runs the Masters program, which operates on a drop-in basis. Master's swimmers pay their TCC drop-in fee at the front reception desk and join the group on the pool deck. Please contact the Canada Games Aquatic Centre at  828-3655 for fees.
The program runs Monday and Wednesday 6:30 - 7:30 pm and Friday from 6:00 - 7:00 am.
