“Swimming with GTX Masters has brought me a new group of friends without the pressure to compete. I swim when I want and I know I’m getting healthier every time out. The coaching is very supportive! “
“Masters swimming in Georgetown is fun, challenging, and great for the body. Being able to push myself and succeeding feels great. I enjoy being in the water, it is so peaceful and calming. But most of all meeting new friends, lastly where else can you get a great work out and not feel the sweat… Just sayin.”
“As a Sun City resident, I am so glad I found GTX Masters. We have great coaches who have helped me with technique, strength and aerobic capacity. They are also patient, fun and very encouraging. It’s great to have found new friends, of all ages, who love the water as much as I do. Whether you just want to become a better swimmer, or compete in meets (where being “older” provides some real advantages), give GTX Masters a try. It’s worth it!”
The structure of Texas Gold Georgetown Masters allows every practice to be challenging regardless of age, speed, and experience. From my first day, the swimmers and Coach David were incredibly kind and supportive. Thanks GTX Masters!
I’ve been swimming off and on with GT Masters for eight years and it’s been a great journey! While I’ve been swimming (for triathlons) for 25+ years, I didn’t start out a swimmer so it wasn’t until I joined GT Masters that I began to swim more efficiently and faster. My stroke improves every year from the coach’s guidance and because of that, my swim times have stayed the same (or sometimes better!) even now when I’m much older than when I began!
