Masters Swim Club

Welcome to our new Masters Swim Club-The Richmond Riveters at the Hilltop Family YMCA. Our adult aquatics program, the masters swim club offers an hour long guided workout designed to improve your strokes, fitness level, and self-confidence. Each session includes a warm-up, workout, and cool-down in order to optimize your physical efforts. Training in a group environment is a great way to meet new people and to motivate yourself to put forth maximum effort in a workout. A competitive swimming background is not necessary. The coach will provide all the instruction necessary to be successful and to help you develop. This is a great workout for all lap swimmers, including triathletes.
