August is Free – The remainder of the month of August will be free to swim with us at The Plunge! At our current two days a week (which will be changing soon, more below), we’d rather have you join us in the pool than worry about the value of the program. See you at our next practice on Tuesday, August 20th! Pool doors open at 6 AM, we’re in the water ~6:05.

Expanding to Monday through Thursday in September – Beginning in September, we’ll move from our current Tuesday/Thursday practice schedule to offering practices Monday through Thursday! Same time slot: 6–7:30 AM

New Coaches – You’ll start to see a few more faces on-deck coaching our team. Our new coaches will start coaching with us in September, but you’ll also see them in the water with us at practice (coach and participate, a pretty good combo if you ask me). Looking forward to introducing them to you!

Mid-Day Practice – A mid-day practice option is currently being discussed with the Aquatics Director at the Plunge. If you’re someone who’s interested in a mid-day practice, be on the lookout for more news on that topic to come.

August 1, 2019 — Our first practice will be on Tuesday, August 6th from 6–7:30 AM! Looking forward to seeing you at the pool!

July 22, 2019 — The Plunge Masters team will begin practices at the pool on August 6th. We will start running practices twice a week, Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Exact times to be announced!

July 4 — The Plunge opened its doors for the first time in five years. See coverage from The San Diego Union Tribune, and local affiliates KPBS, Fox 5, NBC 7, and 10 News.

Want to try it out? Your first three swims with Plunge Masters are on the house. Let the front desk know when you arrive that you’re a first time participant and would like to try our program out.


Plunge Masters practices Monday through Thursday mornings from 6 to 7:30 AM.

The pool opens at 6 AM, we will get in the water shortly thereafter. There are locker rooms and free lockers at the pool if you need to change or store your gear. If you need to be at work by 8 AM, don’t want to swim for nearly an hour and a half, or need to leave early for whatever reason, no problem. Leave when you need to.

Do I need any equipment for practice? We have kickboards and pull buoys at the pool for you to use. If you would like to bring fins or hand paddles, you are encouraged to do so but it is not required.

What is Masters Swimming?

Masters Swimming is a coached swim team. In this case, “Masters” simply means 18 and older. Our team is affiliated with U.S. Masters Swimming (USMS). Team members who choose to register with USMS will have access to sanctioned events (swim meets) and receive their bimonthly SWIMMER magazine. Membership with U.S. Masters Swimming is not required to participate in practices. Should you want to compete, we’d suggest signing up and swimming in a local meet.
