Hi,
Have been looking through listing of Masters groups in the west and am not seeing one for Las Vegas. Is there not one? Am I missing something? Am heading there for vacation and was thinking of dropping in on a masters group for a swim ...
Thanks!

I've swam with the Henderson group a few times and really liked the group, coaches, facilities, and the workouts. It is a pretty easy drive from the strip area, easy freeway access. They didn't seem to have many fast people though, l was one of the fastest whenever I've been there.

Oh, good - they sound like they are 'my' speed (ha)

Vic and the Las Vegas Masters is an awesome, fun group (and fast to boot!) The Desert Breeze Aquatic Facility is a 50 meter indoor pool. That's the place to go when you're in Vegas!

Great pool. Large team. Great coach. I think any Masters swimmer can find happiness with this team, no matter what your speed. I've swum with them on two separate trips to Vegas and had great workouts both trips. Easy to get to from the Strip, though you'll need a car.
