The Masters Swimming program offers a workout that meets any swimmer’s needs. During practices all swimmers will complete similar yet personalized workouts with distances and sets modified depending on ability. The coaching staff will help you define measurable goals and choose appropriate workouts allowing you to measure your progress
Our participants swim for a variety of reasons:
Making new friends
Opportunities to participate in competitions
Getting in shape
Practicing a safe exercise while healing from injury
Cross-training for triathlons and other sports
Improving strokes, turns and starts
Working out with a group that has a common interest in swimming
Preparation for the New Years Resolution Meet, held every January in Lewellen Aquatic Center

Masters Swim FAQ
Am I able to use the pool during non-Masters times?
Non-Affiliates that purchase a Masters pass will only have access during scheduled Master’s times. Alumni and approved Ball Memorial Residents and their spouses/domestic partners will need to purchase a facility membership (each $55/semester or $155/year). All BSU faculty, staff, students and their spouses/domestic partners and children under the age of 24 will have unlimited pool access during normal pool hours.
What about parking?
You may visit the Parking Services office in the basement of the Student Center to purchase a pass (non-students, faculty, staff only). Contact them at 285-1208 for more information. You can also park on Riverside Avenue abiding by Muncie parking meter policies.
