Masters swimmers Jane and Jenny talk about their training in this feature story by WVEC13 Sports!


"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.
