Welcome to the Joliet Park District Blue Tides Masters Swim Team!

The Blue Tides is a registered team of U.S. Masters Swimming. Our swimmers range in age from 18 to almost 80, and have a wide range of swimming background and ability from novice to former college competitors. If you are comfortable in deep water and can swim two lengths of the pool unassisted, there is a place for you!

Each practice session lasts one hour and is coach led. It includes but is not limited to main sets on all competitive strokes, kicking and arm drills, triathlete-driven workouts and sprint and endurance work. Workouts are adjusted to accommodate all abilities. Inwood Athletic Club provides kickboards and pull buoys during the workout. Visit our team calendar for practice times and themes.

While our "seasons" begin in the spring and fall, you can join up with the Blue Tides at any point during the year. Our program is ongoing, and we can prorate the fee based on when you start swimming with us. Come talk to a coach or show up to a workout today!
