Welcome to Common Ground Masters Swimming!

Upcoming events, articles, news & announcements are posted here on this “Home” page, and also on the “Coach’s Blog” page. For more information about the Common Ground Masters Swimming program, visit the “About” page.

  • Note from Coach Craig:


If you are not registered with USMS please do so. This is a requirement even if you don’t plan to swim in swim meets. It is a liability issue for me.

Also, since November Dave and I have been campaigning to have practices on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 5am. Our group is growing and pool space is limited. I’ve also requested to eliminate Open Swim from 5-6am, which would give us one additional lane, to help relieve the overcrowding.

This is where I need your help:

1) Register with USMS. This helps Common Ground verify our numbers through the USMS website.

2) Make some noise! Leave comments in the suggestion box, located in the front hallway of the Common Ground facility. We need more swimming lanes on MWF, and we need Masters practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Let the administration know that we are a very large group who has outgrown our current arrangement!

Hopefully this works, and I can announce changes to our schedule soon.

Thank you!

See you in the pool.
