View Full Version : Looking for a swim meet

December 26th, 2003, 03:06 PM
Hallo from England,

I am an ex (!) college level swimmer who found Masters Swimming in April of this year.

My times are coming back to a shade of respectability (30.72 free, 37.65 fly, 40.54 back and 45.53 breast currently, all 50 meter short course, in age group D.) after 2 hours training, one day a week since last April but the resolution is to cut 10% of all these times before August and then a further 5% before the British Masters Championships in October.

I have family living in Rancho Cucamonga, Alta Loma and soon Hesperia (all Ca). Can someone please advise me of links to masters swim clubs in these areas? Ideally, I would like to arrange my holiday/vacation to visit family to coincide with a masterís meet in one of these areas.

Any help would be appreciated and I am sure the info is here somewhere but I cannot track it down! I rely on your superior North American minds to assist a simple European!!

Many thanks,


Bert Bergen

Go to SPMA.net and click on Swim Meets. We have about seven scheduled for January-May (summer schedule not set yet). You can also find links to area swim clubs where you can train while you are here.

Hi Paul

Here, our team website has some links that would be of help too you:

It has the link to SPMA, and we also keep pretty up to date list of meets scheduled in our zone. There are several 4-5 coming up in the SCY season. First one coming up Jan 9 in Las Vegas.

USMS webpage page titled "Places to swim" should give you a list of clubs that are close to you.

Good Luck, and hope to see you at one of the meets.

Thanks for the replies people. I am all the more certain I will make a least one meet when I come over. All that remains is saving up the air fare and organising the time off work at the right time and finding a meet that is close enough!

Again many thanks,
