Each swimmer must register with USMS within 30 days of their first practice. To do so, you may register online by following this link: USMS Member Registration. We are are part of the Florida Gold Coast Masters (GOLD) Division.  Your USMS Membership is how you're insured when you swim with us.

Practices

Tuesday and Thursday:   6:45PM - 8:00PM

Saurday:                            10:00AM-12:00PM

 

With our olympic swimming pool and plenty of lanes to accomodate swimmers with varying swim times, our coached practices focus on interval training, endurance, speed, long course, short course, and diving starts.  All strokes are covered and a swim clock allows you to track your progress.  If a swim meet is approaching, the coaches focus on the particular skills required for the races our members will be particpating in.  All strokes are covered.  Whether you're a racer or casual swimmer, you get a killer work out that improves your technique and increases your speed.

 

Pool practices are held at The Charles Hadley Pool, a public olympic swimming pool we rent for this purpose.  The Hadley pool is heated in winter and cooled in summer.  There is plenty of parking at the facility, which is located at:

1350 Northwest 50th Street, Miami, FL 33142

(parking lot entrance on NW 12th Ave between NW 46th St and NW 50th St

 

NOTE: While the Charles Hadley Pool is under renovation, we are swimming at the Gibson Park Pool located at 401 NW 12th Street, Miami.

Lessons

Trying to improve your freestyle?  Finally want to tackle the butterfly?  Need to know more about the latest thinking on the breast stroke?

 

If you want to improve your swimming, the Nads are hosting swim lessons with Coach Barry! Now entering his 7th year overseeing the Nads swimming lessons program, Coach Barry offers semi-private lessons to groups of no more than 5 people.  All are welcome!

 

Emphasis is on making swimming enjoyable through:

 

  • Learning to swim efficiently for fun, lap swimming & triathlons

  • Streamlining body position to swim with less effort, increase speed & distance

  • Simple stretching and warm-up techniques

  • Proper stroke, body roll, and kick technique to conserve power and increase endurance

  • Swimming drills to help change bad habits into effective swimming

  • Interval training designed to increase endurance

  • Starts & turns to take the drudgery out of lap swimming

  • Evaluations to show your progress

 

Lessons take place on Saturdays and are divided into two groups:

 

10AM           Beginning and Intermediate Freestyle

11AM           Intermediate and Advanced IM (Back, Breast and Butterfly)

 

For the first month, those who take swim lessons are eligble to particpate in our weekly practices at no additional charge!  For the second month, you get a DISCOUNT CODE for a free 1-Month Swim Package.  Thereafter, if you want to join us for our coached Tuesday and Thursday evening swim sessions, you'll need to choose and pay for one of our 4-Session, 1-Month, 6-Month or 12-Month swim packages.  Please note that student discounts do not currently apply to swim lessons.
