What is a masters team? Ages: 18-100 yrs

TACM is an adult swim team designed to provide swim fitness training, stroke technique skills & drills, and a physical workout–learning to swimming for fun and/or master competition.

All swimming levels and abilities are welcome from adults learning to swim or focused on competition.

Ability to float or swim 50 yards is recommended. How to get ready for masters: swim with our Fitness Swim Classes, adult classes, private lessons, or just try it out!


The Thunderbird Aquatic Club Masters is a wonderful group of adults who always welcome new members.


Swimmers develop skills of strength and endurance through workouts.


Masters have the opportunity to participate in pre and post meet gatherings as well as open water swims.
