Hello Swimmers!

With the steep rise in COVID–19 cases we’ve seen in San Diego County over the past week, and with the health and safety of our team on my mind, I’m cancelling 50 x 100’s; originally scheduled for the day before Thanksgiving, Wednesday, November 25th. We will still have our regular 1 hour practice from 6:30–7:30 AM that day.

Now isn’t the right time to encourage a large number of people on our team to come, share a lane, and be in close proximity with other swimmers for an hour and a half or more.

I also would like to note some upcoming holidays for the Plunge Masters team. We will not have practice the following days:

  • Thursday, November 26th – Thanksgiving
  • Monday-Thursday, December 21–24
  • Monday-Thursday, December 28–31

So, our last practice of 2020 will be Thursday, December 17th and we'll be back in the water on Monday, January 4th.

All the very best. Stay safe. Stay healthy.

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

To reduce the risk of someone unknowingly carrying COVID–19 and passing the disease to their teammate or coach we have an operating plan we are following and ask our participants to follow as well.

Do I need any equipment for practice? We have kickboards and pull buoys, sanitized by the Plunge staff, at the pool for you to use. If you would like to bring fins or hand paddles, you may 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 – when they start back up again) and receive their bimonthly SWIMMER magazine. Membership with U.S. Masters Swimming is not required to participate in practices.
