MAC Lite is completed for the season, and will start up again in the Fall of 2022.

MAC Lite is a ‘Learn to Swim Team’ class that prepares you for swimming with a group. All four competitive strokes will be reviewed as well as swim team etiquette, how to read the workout, and much more! Swimmers are expected to be able to swim at least one length of the pool at their first class. A good swimsuit and pair of goggles are required. Fins and kickboards will be provided.

Your first MAC Lite session includes a 1 month free USMS trial (only available once).  At the end of your first month, you must register with USMS and may register for another Lite session if available or switch to our regular MAC practices and memberships.
