With over 70 USMS registered swimmers, ranging in ages from 21 to 80, we are one of the top competitive teams in the Pacific Northwest. What makes us a top team is the attention given to swimmers of all abilities. From stroke technique to physiological (and psychological) training there is always some way to improve. Some of our swimmers have never swum with a team before. Some come to us from lap swimming, some for a desire to improve their open water swimming abilities.
