Chicago Masters is happy to offer a wide variety of swimming opportunities for all masters 

swimmers. We have lanes available for athletes at every training level, from staying in shape to 

Iron Man Triathlon qualifiers to swimmers who remain competitive. We have access to the 50 

meter pool at the University of Illinois – Chicago (UIC) Physical Education Building (PEB), 901 

W Roosevelt Rd, six days a week. We are coached by Clair Martin (AM) as well as other members

of the UIC coaching staff. Practices are offered 5:30 – 7:30 am Monday – Friday, 5:00 – 7:00 pm Monday -

Thursday, and also 6:00 – 8:00 am on Saturday. 

We feel it is important to be clear regarding fee schedule, what  is expected, and how we pay the bills. We have three training sessions per calendar year:

1. January 1 to April 30

2. May 1 to Labor Day

3. Labor Day to December 31

Each session will cost $175, which includes pool time and coaching. We also offer a rate of 

$75 per session for full-time students under age 25.

You can register for an entire calendar year ($500). Make checks payable to: Chicago Masters.


There are two payment options:


  • pay via check that is payable to: Chicago Masters Swim Club. DO NOT PAY IN CASH.


In addition, you MUST be registered with United States Masters Swimming (USMS), information can be found on USMS website at



The registration provides the necessary insurance that will allow you to swim at UIC and 

participate in USMS sanctioned events. When you register, select “Illinois Masters” as club 

name and then select “CMSC – Chicago Masters Swim Club” as the workout group.

For those entering a training session midway or are in town for a few days per week, we offer the 

following fees:

1. $75 per month

2. $40 per week

3. $10 per day


The above fees cover our costs, but we also have various fundraisers throughout the year. This 

will primarily be done by hosting USMS meets, and assisting UIC during their home meets. 

Since these activities allow our organization to exist, we need everyone’s help in making 

these events work. We are extremely excited about all we have to offer and with everyone’s 

cooperation; we will be able to continue to grow.
