About the Club
If you enjoy swimming, are 18 years of age or older, and like the idea of fitness or competitive swimming, then Masters swimming may be for you. The Oakville Masters Swim Club practice primarily at White Oaks Pool. Our programs start in September and run until June. Our swimmers span a wide range of abilities. Swimmers are assigned to the lane that is most suitable to their speed, that will offer both compatibility and challenge. Each swim session is coached, offering a workout designed by our professional and experienced coaches.
Fun, Fitness, Friendship and Forever young is the motto of Master swimming.
Masters Swimming encourage fitness, provides opportunities to increase physical fitness, improve stroke techniques, and participate in social activities. The level of participation in any aspect of Oakville Masters Swimming is entirely up to the swimmer, be it lap swimming for fitness, training for competing in triathlons or swim meets, or swimming at any level in between.
Oakville Masters is one of the oldest Masters clubs, founded in the 1970's. Over the years the club has evolved. There were times when the club was actively competing as a team. Recently we seem to be getting back into it, with many members participating in Masters meets. We still have some of our early members. This only proves that swimming can be a life long joy.
In January 2012, The Oakville Masters Swim Club got voted the Best Masters Swim Club to Swim in, in the Eastern Canada, selected by Readers Choice Magazine "GetOutThere"
