Annual Meeting, Sunday Nov 3rd

Coach Stu Kahn will be presenting at the Pacific Masters annual meeting on Sunday, November 3rd. The topic is Underwater Analysis of Elite Freestyle Swimmers and What Masters Can Learn From Them. This, along with a 9:00 a.m. workout with Kerry O'Brien joined on deck by our featured keynote speaker Matt Biondi, looks to be a pretty awesome annual meeting. Hope you can join us!



USMS Coaches Committee
The USMS Coaches Committee exists to educate and support the coaches of masters teams. We have conference calls each month to help us exchange ideas and work toward our goals. One of which is to improve communication with all our coaches across the U.S. By sharing the minutes of our meeting, we can give you some insights into the projects we are working on and goals we are working toward.
