Masters Swim Team

After careful consideration, effective August 1, 2023, we are no longer offering the Masters swim program. The decision to discontinue the program was not made lightly and was made with the best interests of our community at heart. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at Thank you for your understanding.

Representing swimmers of all ages

Don’t let the word “masters” fool you. This group is focused on all levels of swimming with over half of its participants categorizing themselves as “fitness swimmers.”

YWCA Masters Swim Team is a fitness swimming group for adults age 18 and older. Join us to train, stay in shape, try something new and meet new friends. No competitive swimming experience required.

Additional Information

Enrollment is billed monthly through the team website, and changes to accounts need to be made at least two full days prior to the end of the next month’s billing. Because YWCA Minneapolis Masters rents outdoor lane space, we have an additional fee of $50/month for those enrolling in weekday outdoor practices (this is reflected in rates above).
