Evanston Masters
Categories
Description

Swim team, established in 1982, for adults with abilities ranging from beginner, lap swimmer, and triathlete to former high school and college standouts. Team is comprised of about 120 men and women ranging in age from 18-80. All members are encouraged to participate in meets. The Winter Season runs from October through May and practices are held at Evanston Township High School. The Summer Season runs from June through August at the 50-meter outdoor Centennial Pool in Wilmette.

Thinking about joining? Evanston Masters (aka, The Wild Catfish) is a masters swim team that strives to provide quality workouts and plenty of social fun.

Looking to get in shape or stay in shape? We have nine graduated lanes, starting with novice lap swimmers and ending with former college swimmers. Our age range is roughly 19 to 80. Our practices typical have one coach covering three lanes, with each coach running the practice and providing advice on technique.

Looking to meet some fellow swimmers and hang out? In addition to the camaraderie with the folks in your lane, you’ll probably enjoy the Catfish team parties and post-practice social outings that are scheduled throughout the season.

The first time is always a bit scary, of course. Just show up, meet the coaches, and try a free practice. You’ll love it!

We are located at Evanston Township High School on Dodge, immediately south of Church. Free street parking!

The Winter Schedule:

Tuesday: 7:30-9:00 PM
Thursday: 7:30-9:00 PM
Saturday: 6:30-8:00 AM and 3:30-5:00 PM
Sunday: 6:30-8:00 AM and 3:30-5:00 PM

Though the organization is still run by a volunteer board, all teams have paid and licensed coaches.
