We have reserved the Whispering Hills Clubhouse pool every Sunday morning from 8am to 10am. The 25yd pool has 5 lanes. Enter the clubhouse through the side door (closest to the main parking lot) that leads to the fitness area.

It’s back — the Club’s version of the US Master’s Swimming Postal Challenge Swim in which swimmers see how far they can swim in 60 minutes. This is a great way to measure your swim ability early in the year to set goals for later in the season. This can be a casual swim, a challenge swim between friends or your previous times, or your early 2016 benchmark swim. All up to you!

There are a few ways to do this. You can swim with your own lap counter or watch to track your distances. Alternatively, you can partner up with another swim who counts and times your laps on a timing sheet. USMS provides a timing sheet you can use.  http://www.usms.org/longdist/1hr_3000_6000_splits.pdf

If you plan to partner up, find another swimmer and coordinate with them to plan who swims first, what time to meet, etc. The pool is open to the Club from 8-10, so you’ve got to be ready to go at 8, or plan to do something shorter, like a 50 minute swim.

BOOKINGS

The pool may remain closed during  inclement weather (snow and ice). We will do our best to post a closure announcement on the club’s Facebook page or Twitter.
