Anyone from Bakersfield on a Masters swim team?
i'm Considering to join and would like some inside scoop about the team

-how large?

- What days and times are practice ? How long?

-Is there anything I need to buy(besides the obvious:cap,googles,jammer) ?

-Where does the team swim? I noticed 2 locations -I'D PREFER CSUB.

-How often are the meets ?
(not that i'll be in one, although i swim 2-3 miles per day and would love to swim fast and better)

-do i need to tryout for the team?

-Cost monthly?

Thanks for the info!
