The Masters swimming program, referred to as “Swim Coaching and Training” (SCT) has been operating since 2009 and is open to both members and non-members of the JCC. Participants come from a broad spectrum of abilities and interests. While a majority of interests are around triathlon and/or open water swim goals, exercise and basic stroke development are also common goals. Practices are geared toward those interests but vary based on the season. At times a more diverse curriculum may take priority. Practices are conducted on a participant drop-in basis.
