    Place to swim in Seattle?

    Seattle-ites:

    My family just moved to Seattle and I am looking for a group to swim with. We will be in Fremont for the next few months. Any suggestions? I signed up for Fat Salmon.

    thanks,
    Danielle

    Re: Place to swim in Seattle?

    If you want to swim in the mornings the Green Lake Aqua Ducks is a good option. Can't say I'm a big fan of that pool, though. There's a masters group that swims at Queen Anne a couple evenings a week and on Sunday morning. A good after work option is Husky Masters at UW, but right now the pool is undergoing repairs, so their schedule is a little funky. Most of the Seattle pools also have masters workouts at various times. These can be fine if there's a decent group, but don't expect much for coaching. The workouts are usually written by one of the lifeguards on a white board and that's about it for organization.

    Once Colman opens in three weeks that opens up more opportunities and it's one of the most scenic pools I've ever swum in! You can find schedule info for all the city pools here:

    Just a bit of a drive but I like swimming at the Mary Wayte Pool here on Mercer Island.

    http://www.mercerislandpool.com/index.html

    New Masters Team Tue/Thur 7-8, Wed 12-1

    $7.50 drop in or $2.50 if you have a month long pass to the pool which is unlimited swimming for 55/month.

    Welcome to Seattle!

    Is that 7-8 am or pm? And, is this a coached workout? Thanks, morton. I would take credit for the past 10 days of good weather in Seattle, but it also snowed a good 6 inches when I drove through South Dakota 2 weeks ago.

    7-8 in the evening. Coached, the old coach quit a couple weeks ago and there is a new guy names Chris, I have only done two workouts with him but he seems like a good guy and is very focused on form and instruction.
