Coach: Whitney Hedgepeth 2013 USMS Coach of the Year

Goal: To improve a swimmer’s ability by working on endurance, fitness, and proper technique

The Longhorn Aquatics Masters Swimming team trains at the The University of Texas Lee and Joe Jamal Texas Swim Center.   Masters team members range in age from 18 and up. Ability levels vary from swimmers who have college swimming experience to athletes learning competitive strokes, flip turns, and the technical aspects of the sport. Many members are tri-athletes who want to improve their skills. Swimmers are grouped by ability and experience for workouts. There is a friendly, helpful, and competitive environment at all workouts.  We offer 11 workouts per week for $80/month ($75/mth for UT students, staff or faculty).  Check the schedule tab for workout times.

Workouts focus on:

  • Fitness and endurance
  • Proper form and technique
  • Maintaining race-paced swimming, kicking, drill work, pulling, and fin work

Swimmers interested in the program are allowed one free try out session.    An email must be sent to the coach asking permission and a try out form must be given to the UT swim center front desk and signed.

Masters Swimming Punch Cards

For those current US Masters swimmers who require only a limited number of sessions, there is a Masters Swimming Punch Card available for $110 at the Front Desk of the TSC. The punch card is good for ten total swim sessions at the Texas Swim Center and are limited to only two (2) per year (September – August). All punch card holders must be registered with USMS. Bring your punch card to the TSC each time you swim.
