CFAC Masters Swim

Training for a triathlon? Just want to get back into the swim of things? Cape Fear Aquatics Club Masters Swim is a competitive swim program for numerous types of swimmers; beginners as well as seasoned triathletes, lap swimmers, and swimmers that just want a group workout. We encourage our athletes to travel and compete in Masters Swim meets throughout the state and country.

Through our Masters Swim program, we will be offering 12 swim coached practices each week. Practices will have up to 3 lanes for participants to circle swim in our 6-Lane Pool. Coached practices will run just as a normal swim practice would. Our Coaches will help you improve your techniques and push you to become stronger and smarter in the water.
