Swimming with the UVRays

  • 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  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 fully vaccinated and willing to share a lane). You may not get to swim at every practice you request.
  • Practices are 60 minutes, which includes time for warmup/down.
  • 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 optional at UVAC.
  • Locker rooms and showers are available.
  • Bring your own gear if possible! Workouts can be done without gear, but fins, pull buoy and kickboard are sometimes recommended.  A limited selection of these items is available for public use.
  •  Use UVAC’s main entrance and Welcome Desk to access all Masters practices.
