      • UVAC members and Day Pass visitors may attend masters practices for a fee. See below. But you still need to request a lane at each desired practice.  Email barbara@goswim.tv to request lanes.

COVID-19 Masters Protocols

  • Masters lanes must be booked in advance via head coach Barbara Hummel. This is to ensure that everyone gets a chance to swim, and so that swimmers are adjacent to speed peers.
  • To request lanes, email barbara@goswim.tv before Friday at 5 pm for lanes throughout the following week. State day(s) and practice time(s) desired.
  • Masters lanes are limited, and are limited to one swimmer per lane (two per lane if both swimmers are two weeks out from final COVID vaccination and willing to share a lane). You may not get to swim at every practice you request.
  • Practices are 60 minutes, which includes approximately 5 minutes for entry and exit and 50 minutes for swimming.
  • Most practices are coached, but some are not. Uncoached practices are led from in the water by an experienced member of the team. Accommodations are made for various levels of ability.
  • Workouts are emailed in advance.  You need to print the workout and bring it to the pool in your own Ziplock bag, or cue it for viewing on your phone.
  • Arrive ahead of time. If you’re late, your session will be shorter than 1 hour.
  • The pool schedule is tightly booked with many programs, so you need to gather your gear and be out of the pool area before the next program is scheduled to begin.
  • Masters swimmers must adhere to all UVAC COVID-19 protocols. Masks are no longer required for vaccinated people at UVAC, but we are asking that Masters swimmers wear a mask to and from the water’s edge.
  • Locker rooms and showers are available.
  • Bring your own gear! Workouts can be done without gear, but fins, pull buoy and kickboard are sometimes recommended.  No public-use equipment is available, and there is no sharing of gear.  You can buy equipment in the UVAC Pro Shop or at Stateline Sports.
  •  Use UVAC’s main entrance and Welcome Desk to access all Masters practices.
