Our membership options currently offer Rochester area swimmers from three to six coached workouts per week at two to four Rochester facilities [MCC (weekdays), RIT (Saturday), GVP (summer) and Harley (on occasion] from September through July. We welcome swimmers ages 18 and over who are interested in fitness as well as Masters and triathlete competition. Our workouts help improve stroke technique and efficiency as well as endurance and fitness. We currently have swimmers who are nationally ranked competitive Masters swimmers and successful triathletes. All swimmers benefit from the structured workouts and the camaraderie of other swimmers to avoid the tedium of solo lap swimming. We also provide periodic underwater taping of swimmers’ strokes with feedback from the coaches.
The RAMS team hosts Masters meets in November and March as well as several team social events throughout the year.
We run tryout periods at various points throughout each season. Use the Join/Contact link for information about our practices and fee structure. We also require a current USMS registration upon joining.
