Coach: Whitney Hedgepeth
Goal: To improve a swimmer’s ability by working on endurance, fitness, and proper technique
The Longhorn Aquatics Masters Swimming and Diving teams are The University of Texas at Austin’s adult fitness swimming programs. Masters team members range in age from 18 to 99. Ability levels vary from swimmers who have college swimming experience to athletes learning competitive strokes, flip turns, and the technical aspects of the sport. Several 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.
Workouts focus on:
- Fitness and endurance
- Proper form and technique
- Maintaining race-paced swimming, kicking, drill work, pulling, and fin work
Entry into our Masters Swimming program requires you to attend a trial-session workout with the team to determine if the program is right for you.
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 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). Please sign and bring to TSC with a copy of your USMS card.
