Manitoba Masters Aquatic Club (MMAC) is an adult swim club in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada training in the Pan Am Pool.
The Pan Am Pool is a world class facility housing two 8 lane 50 meter pools. It is located at 25 Poseidon Bay, at the corner of Grant Avenue and Cambridge Street.
Practices are available every day of the week. We have morning practices 7 days a week, as well as evening practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
It is a successful blend of recreational and fitness swimming for adults. Masters swimming is based on regular training sessions using training techniques similar to those used in swim programs all over the world, including flexibility, strength, and aerobic conditioning.
Masters Swimming 101 Article Series is a great source of information if you want to learn more about Masters swimming.
Masters swimming is open to any swimmer 18 years and older. No previous competitive background is necessary and you do not have to compete as a Masters swimmer. The most important prerequisite is the desire to improve in a fun and stimulating environment.
However, MMAC is not a "learn to swim" program; it is an adult fitness program. You should be confident enough to swim at least four lengths of the pool comfortably.
Those with a known medical condition and/or who are 45 years of age or older are advised to check with their physician before enrolling.
