Testimonials!

"Swam noon Tide Masters at outdoor Princess Anne YMCA pool today. First real swim for me in 2 years. I recommend it:
1. Outdoor swimming is like a different sport from indoor - SO MUCH BETTER!
2. Having a coach and fellow swimmers in the pool is way more fun than swimming alone.
3. Overall body fatigue feels weirdly good hours later
4. Forgot how much I enjoy the feel of water - good for the soul!"

-Katy Arris-Wilson, President Emeritus, TIDE Board of Directors. Read about Katy's exceptional swimming career HERE.
