There is something in the program for everyone, and everyone is welcome to come and swim with the Chronos Masters.
The Halifax Chronos Masters Swim Club (HCMSC) provides membership for novice swimmers and elite athletes over the age of 18 with three different levels of training:
Fit-Tech (2000 +/- meters)
Middle Distance (2500 +/- meters)
Endurance (3000 +/- meters)
Each category provides for a different type of swimming experience for athletes with specific training goals.
HCMSC offers coached swimming for those who have the ability to complete a few hundred meters and who wish to increase their endurance. This club is for recreational and fitness swimmers, triathletes and competitive swimmers.
The club provides an opportunity to improve stroke mechanics, develop a fitness level that enhances daily living, or achieve competitive goals. We also cater to athletes who are presently swimming in competitions and want to increase their skill and performance through a team environment.
You can join us for the Full Session (Fall + Spring), Fall Session or the Spring Session.
There are a large number of swimmers that move to the lakes in the summer while a number of others continue to swim in the pool for July and August.
HCMSC members are also eligible to attend any Centennial lane swim at no charge from September to June.
If you are interested in our club you can try us out for up to 3 swims for $10/swim (please email to arrange).
Many of our members are still actively competitive while others participate for fitness and the social appeal of our club.
You'll find that there are numerous informal post-workout socials throughout the year whether it be a quick bite and drink after a Thursday night practice or perhaps breakfast after weekend morning practices. We also have Christmas parties, year-end BBQs, etc.
