What is PCC Masters?
Are you tired of following that same black line on the bottom of the pool – swimming endless laps between two cement walls? Lap swim boredom is probably one of the greatest barriers that the fitness swimmer must overcome. The alternate you ask? Add some variety to your swim program by coming out for a session of Masters Swimming.
Our program is designed to accommodate adult swimmers of all ages and abilities. For the fitness swimmer, we design a challenging workout that will enable you to discover a whole new world of swimming. Introduction to the pace clock, how to do interval training, different strokes and using training equipment are all a part of our Masters program.
If competition is your thing, such as swim meets, open water swims or triathlons, our Masters program is designed for you as well. Each workout will provide you with a challenging environment in which you can thrive and progress. A number of our swimmers are accomplished veterans in a variety of competitive venues.
Sound interesting? Come out and join us for FUN, FITNESS, and FRIENDSHIP! That’s what PCC Masters swimming is all about!

It’s that time of year once again for the triple crown holiday swims!
The PCC Masters Triple Crown event consists of three separate workouts over the holidays, one each on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. Each workout consists of a specific number of 100’s. Swimmers in each lane designate the pace, and many alternate leaders during the event. This is a social swim, as usually there are many swimmers in each lane. It is a challenging swim as well, as many meters are accomplished by each swimmer.
The dates, distances, and start times for each of the three swims follows:
- THANKSGIVING DAY WORKOUT, Thursday, November 28nd, 6am and 8am
- Bronze Level 15×100
- Silver Level 35×100
- Gold Level 50×100
- CHRISTMAS WORKOUT, Saturday, December 14th, 5:30am, 7:30am, and 9:30am
- Bronze Level 25×100
- Silver Level 50×100
- Gold Level 75×100
- NEW YEAR’S DAY WORKOUT, Wednesday, January 1st, 2020, 5:30am, 8am, 10:30am
- Bronze Level 35×100
- Silver Level 65×100
- Gold Level 100×100
The above three levels have been in place for numerous years. For some of you, there may be other goals you would like to accomplish. I encourage you to establish those, and GO FOR IT!!! Let me know, and I will assist you in meeting them. There will be food/beverage in the lobby after each swim. A very nice sweatshirt will be presented at completion. A participation fee of $ will be billed to your account in the new year.
The above three levels have been in place for numerous years. If you desire to discuss other goals, talk to Coach Mike who is open to this.
