Welcome to the River Otters Masters Swimming Club Team!
The Greater Johnstown Community YMCA will inaugurate a new adult swimming program in January 2021. Aptly named River Otters Masters (more a reflection of maturity than of mastery), the program will be coached by Zing Allsopp, a member of United States Masters Swimming, American Swimming Coaches Association, and the National Academy of Sports Medicine.
The River Otters Masters Swimming Club Team is open to adult swimmers age 18 and over of any ability. Our certified coaches provide leveled workouts dependent upon the time requirements and ability of the masters swimmer. January through April, Masters practice indoor at the 25-meter, 6-lane, indoor pool on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday during the 12:00-1:00 lunch hour.
Beginning on April 3, 2021 our team will practice on Saturdays from 7:00-8:00 AM and on Mondays/Wednesdays from 6:00-7:00 AM.
Coach Zing will be posting our workouts and announcements on the River Otters Facebook page. Visit by clicking here
River Otters Club Team members have the option to compete in local swim meets and the Virtual 1-hour Postal National Championships.
