This swim series is set up similar to a masters swim class, with a tad more technique driven interactions with the coach.

Varying abilities/speeds are ok, as you will be grouped with similar ability members. However please keep in mind this is for intermediate to advanced swimmers that can finish a masters swim pool workout. Sorry no beginners who cannot yet swim a continuous 200-400 yards.

Arrive early and be on the swim deck by 6:15 at the latest or you will miss the introduction to the workout.

We are not sure yet if locker rooms are open and available (although they are for regular lap swim with the SF parks and Rec pools, so we assume they are)
