    Searching for a team for a week

    Right now it looks like I'm going to be in San Francisco from 8/25->8/31 for a tech conference. Is there a team I can practice with? Ideally I'm looking for early morning, but I'll gladly skip parts of the conference to get an hour or 2 in.

    Thanks ahead of time!

    Go to the Local swim clubs section which is listed by states, find a club in San Francisco, contact them and work it out.
    I've done this a couple times on various trips and it works really well.
    Have fun!!
    HTFU!

    I figured as much - I was more or less looking for a forumite I could get a recommendation from first.

    Will you have a car? Where will you be staying?

    I'm still waiting to hear all the final details, but likely no - I will not have a car.

    The only program I'm aware of that's in SF itself and allows visitors is USF http://www.usfca.edu/Koret/Aquatics/Masters/

    The Olympic Club has a solid Masters program, but I don't think they allow visitors.

    There are probably several group that organize regular swims in the bay.

    Sorry for the delay! I didn't get official "OK" for next weeks trip until earlier this week! I'll be swimming with the group at the UCSF pool in Mission Bay!
