Hi ya- that depends where you're moving...

there's always Fort Lauderdale Swim team- great age group teams, and a great Master's team, also...

There's also Plantation, Aventura Aquatic club, there's some in Pompano, I think...

Try the searchable database of places to swim which is linked to this site...

Here's the website for MAster's swimming in the area

and here's their link to area pools and teams

I moved to FLorida from Europe...

Good luck and happy swimming!

Hi - If you are moving to Boca Raton there are a lot of options in town.

Pine Crest in Boca Raton has both age group and Master's programs. Tom Smith is the head coach. The masters swim five days a week. M-F. 7:30-9:00 AM and 6:00-7:30 PM. The kids swim in the afternoon and I believe they have a swim camp this summer.

The Boca Raton YMCA has a rec league swim team and a Master's program. The kids swim in the late afternoon and early evening. The Master's swim T & TH 8:00-9:30 PM and Sat 8:00-9:00 AM.

Meadows Park Pool has a rec league in the summer. The masters program swims M-W-F 5:30-7:00 AM and PM.

FAU has a USS Team and a Master's program.

I used to swim at the YMCA and I now swim at Pine Crest.

Send me an email if you want more information. Come try a work out with us at Pine Crest.
