Freedom Aquatic Club - Masters Team


The Freedom Aquatic Club is our Masters Swim Team here at the Freedom Aquatic & Fitness Center.  This was previously called the Sunfish Masters Team for many years. Our coaches write workouts that total up to 5,000 yards and can help each swimmer tailor the workout down to their ability if the total workout is either too long of a total distance or too time consuming for their schedule. Depending on an upcoming event or race, we can also adjust the workout for other needs.


Practices take place in up to 13 feet of water depending on the set up of the pool being short course or long course. Participants must be comfortable in water over their head and able to swim the length of the pool without stopping.

Please stop by the front desk to add Masters to your membership!

This is an ongoing, year round program that requires the specific Master’s Swim Membership. You are not required to attend all practices and may show up to as many or as few as you’d like.  There is no prorating the fees for any reason. We will print a roster each month to make sure everyone is signed up.

Our weekly schedule above is consistent; however, please reference this page for any changes or closings due to swim meets, holidays, closings, etc. Please note that at certain times of the year, the pool may be set up in a long course setup, meaning one length is 50 meters instead of the usual 25 yards which the pool is most commonly set up in.
