FAQ

How does SCAQ differ from traditional swim team programs? Other than being the BEST, we are a collection of so many different goals, skill levels, and ages that love the leadership of an experienced coach. What are the age requirements for joining the SCAQ Masters swimming program? SCAQ is centered on adults and maximizing their time for fitness, fun, and swimming goals, including triathlons. What are the training schedules and commitment expectations for SCAQ swimmers? You can swim as often and as little as you want, but most swimmers swim three times per week and we recommend three to achieve incredible fitness goals – but two is better than one, and one is better than none. Please, tell us your goals! How does the club accommodate swimmers of different skill levels?  Lanes within a workout are broken up by speed. Speed is based on the interval for 5x100s. Don’t know what that means? We will teach you! Do I have to be a good swimmer to participate? You do not have to be fast to swim with SCAQ. SCAQ was many of our swimmers first experience swimming in a workout. Start swimming with us and we will get you started in the right direction, not only technically but also with the best training methods.  Getting in on your own is difficult.  You will progress much faster and maximize your exercise time in the water with some helpful coaching in an organized setting. Are there opportunities for competition and what are the requirements for participation? There are definitely opportunities for competition. The meets are open to all swimmers. Swim meet information can be found on the USMS website.  Also, ocean swim events and triathlons. What are the fees associated with joining the SCAQ swimming program? Monthly membership is $120. Or, you can pay by the workout. Single workouts are $15. Are there any requirements for equipment or attire? You do not need to purchase any special equipment. Pools have kickboards and...
