Hi everyone,

I am a 45 years old french master swimmer on business travel in West Chicago for 10 days in mid september looking for a place where i could go on my all year long swimming training ...

Can anyone help please ? Can't find locations on google ?? Probably i am using bad searching words ...

Olympic pool would be great, that's what we got here in Caen, Normandy, and it's so pleasant ! but a 25m pool with lines dedicated to "fast" swimmer woud be fine too

To introduce myself as a swimmer, i swim 3 to 4 times a week (3000 m each session), i take part in swimming meetings (races) around 10 times per year (including French Master Championships), and my best times this year was a 29'45 (50 meters freestyle) / 33'61 (50 m buterfly) / 37'11 (50 m backstroke) what was great for me, because it was a 3 secondes better in every stroke that my bests times in 2013 ...

In pleasure to hear from a US master swimming in the area,

Pascal

Hi Pascal,

I think we will be able to help you! We have an 8-lane, 25 yard pool with lots of space for visitors, as well as a number of swimmers you'll be able to train with. For more information, check out

http://www.academybullets.com/SubTabGeneric.jsp?team=ilabsc&_stabid_=66403

Our practices are 2500-4000 yards (2200-3500m) per day, and we hold 7-8 practices per week (5-6 mornings and 2 evenings) for an hour each.

All practices are held at Marmion Academy in Aurora. If you're working in West Chicago or Naperville, we're probably 5-10 miles (8-15km) from you. I live on the northwest side of Naperville, and the pool is 8 miles/12km from my house.

If you have any questions, please send an email to c.colburn@academybullets.com and I'll be happy to help. If you need something closer to you, please let me know and I can try to connect you with the other programs in the area.

Hope to see you at the pool!

Chris Colburn
Head Coach, Academy Bullets Masters

Hi Chris,

Thanks for your answer, and your indications, i am grateful, that's the kind of "solutions" i was looking for, it may be great.

I contact you with your personal adress.

You might also take a look at the College of DuPage www.cod.edu. You can buy a monthly pass for I believe $35 which will give you access to the pool and the fitness center which are both brand new. The pool is 25 yards. They also have a hotel on campus and the college is proximate to West Chicago. If you decide to come, let me know and I will try and arrange my schedule to workout with you. There is a workout group of masters swimmers that swims there from Sept. to May in the mornings too.

If you are still here in the start of Oct, we would like to invite you to one of our practices in Elgin , Il .
It would be a pleasure to have you visit our team. We swim at the Centre in downtown elgin, not far from where you are staying.
I would be glad to pick you up for this.
