Hello Swimmers!!!

SWIM INFO!!! BTW, McCLURE, Hutcherson Y, ORU, and JENKS!!!

Below is a description of everything I know about the options to swim in the Tulsa area for the next few months! This information will be posted on the TMSC blog as well,

BOOKER T. WASHINGTON HS: April 25- April 29, 2011--> LAST WEEK OF WORKOUTS at BTW :(
5 to 7 pm, Monday-Friday.

MCCLURE PARK POOL, outdoor 50 m pool, 7440 E. 7th Street.
NEW THIS YEAR! Starting TUESDAY JUNE 7th, 2011 Adult (18 & over) lap swimming, 6:30 to 7:30pm, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, and THURSDAY evenings, through Thursday August 11th, 2011. Offered by the Tulsa Parks Department. A lifeguard will be on deck for that hour. No coach, swimmers do their own thing. Swimmers will purchase a pool pass from the Parks Department. Cost: $20 for 10 swims, $55 for the entire summer, or $5 for drop in. You must purchase the swim pass at the Hicks Community Center, 3443 S. Mingo. You DO NOT have to be a masters member to swim.

HUTCHERSON YMCA, Pine & Peoria, (918) 382-9622: 'Masters Swim Class', Monday, Wednesday & Friday mornings, 5:45 to 6:45 am. Some 'coach on deck' workouts, some swimmer organized workouts. Y members pay $10 a month. Non- YMCA members are allowed for a slightly higher monthly fee. You DO NOT have to be a masters member to swim in this workout either.

ORAL ROBERTS UNIVERSITY: Members of Tulsa Area Triathletes (TAT) have the benefit of swimming Tuesday & Thursday nights, 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm at the in-door pool in the ORU-Kenneth H. Cooper Aerobics Center. See the TAT website for more information, OR email:

JENKS TROJAN AQUATIC CENTER: 'B' Street & Birch Street, Jenks, OK, Brand new, indoor, state of the art, 50 meter x 25 yard pool. 8 lanes in the summer when the pool is configured as a 50 m pool. Please note that masters will have reserved pool time 3 x/ day, 5 days per week, and Saturday mornings WHEN WE ARE UP TO FULL SPEED. There will also be open lap swim times EVENTUALLY. The new Facility Director AND Masters Coach has not arrived yet, so we are covering the best we can until staff is in place.

Read below:

MONDAY April 25, 2011 6 - 7:30am: Morning workouts begin! We should have all 8 lanes. Please contact Lloyd Landreth if you are interested in swimming at this time, Lloyd will be able to cover the Monday & Friday swims, the other days depend on his travel schedule. Please stay in touch with Lloyd. Again, we should be up to 5 days a week once the new staff is in place.

SATURDAY April 30, 2011 8 to 10 am: Saturday workouts resume. We will have all 8 lanes. I will be responsible for this workout until the new staff is in place.

MONDAY MAY 2, 2011 6:00 to 7:30pm: Evening workouts begin! I will also be responsible for this workout until the new staff arrives. We may have to share the pool for the month of May until school gets out. After that, all 8 lanes should be ours!

RISE & SHINE, 5:00 am to 6 am, Monday, Wednesday, & Friday mornings. This is an adult lap swimming session, not a masters workout. No coach, swimmers do their own thing. I'm not sure when this program will start so PLEASE contact Ben Thorman for more info before you show up before the crack of dawn!

COMING SOON: Lunch time masters workouts- 12:00pm to 1:30 pm. This will begin once staff is in place. Watch your email for more info.

We encourage all swimmers including competitive (meet) swimmers, triathletes, and fitness swimmers at the Jenks masters workouts. This is not a learn-to-swim program. Until the new coach arrives, the swimmers will be making up the workouts each day. We encourage group workouts as they are more fun, and allow you to advance your fitness goals. We will offer a mixture of freestyle sets with the other 3 competitive strokes. Don't be intimidated if you can't swim all the strokes. Freestyle is always an option. The other swimmers and the new coach can help you expand your swimming portfolio if you desire.

For the first two weeks or so at the new Jenks pool, you will not have to pay to use the pool. Come check it out, see if you like it. I will let you know when you will need to officially sign up and how to do it. Until then, all swimmers will sign a release (just once) and sign in each time they swim. I've attached the release to this email. You can print it and bring it with you, or I will have copies at the pool. This will also be posted on our blog.

Swimming is getting big time in the Tulsa area. I hope all of you will join us in the pool at one time or another. Watch for more information as I get it. Please feel free to contact me with all your questions!
