About 30% of Masters swimmers compete in swimming meets on a regular basis.
For those who are serious competitors, there are an incredible number of opportunities to test your skill and conditioning. Short Course (25 yard and 25 meter) and Long Course (50 meter) pool meets, lake and ocean open water swims, postal meets, special events and international championships are all part of an ambitious program of Masters swimming. Check the following sub-menus for event information (meet info, entry forms, links to websites & results).
- Pool Meets

For those who don't compete ... or compete much, there's fitness swims (aka practice), channel crossings, fun swims. For many, swimmers want to be stronger so they can be safer when surfing, windsurfing, kiteboarding ... or doing a long Sunday ocean swim with friends and fish.
