We welcome visiting swimmers! Visitors MUST contact Coach David Miner prior to arrival. To swim in our workouts, you must be a current member of U.S. Masters Swimming, pay a $7 drop-in fee, and sign a YMCA waiver. Please do not show up expecting to swim if you haven’t contacted the coach in advance.
