The Masters squad is the pinnacle of swimming achievement, a place where wisdom, fitness and above all guile are blended to create perfect athletes. It's for those 18 years old and over; goals in this squad could include training for swimming competitions, competing in triathlons, and training for open water.

Training is structured in the form of a set program specifically written for the Masters group. Sessions focus on developing physical conditioning and technical skills for competition swimming. All four strokes are used: while new members don’t need to be able to swim butterfly, they need to be willing to develop this stroke.
