Valley Forge Masters Swim Team



Welcome to the VFM Web Page. We have now moved inside for the winter season. Always check the website before attending any Sunday workout to make sure practice has not been cancelled or the start time or location has not been changed.


 

The Valley Forge Masters Swim Team was formed in 1985 to compete in local and national swim meets.  At first the team only consisted of a few competitive swimmers, since then the team has grown to encompass many people, all of whom possess different levels of ability.

Over the years it has evolved into more than simply a swim team. Besides hosting one of the largest USMS Masters swim meets in the Greater Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area,  we also hold several social activities during the year. These include a Summer Party,  and our annual Holiday Party.

During the week our members swim at various locations, but on Sundays the VFM Team hosts a morning workout

 During the summer months the practices are held at the Upper Main Line Y in their outdoor 50 meter pool.

 

 

From October to May the Sunday workouts are held at Villanova University.

The swimming abilities of our members runs from former Division I Collegiate swimmers to recreational lap swimmers. There are also a number of triathletes who choose to train with us, so there is always a lane to accommodate any ability.

Many of our members also run, bike and compete in open water races, so if your interests mainly run to those sports, you are sure to find someone with whom to workout.

During the summer, many of our members compete in  many of the open water swims held in the surrounding states.

If you are interested in knowing more about our group you can e-mail Dave Schneider.
