Welcome to Swim Louisville Masters

SLM is an adult team of swimmers ranging in ages from 18 to 70-somethings. We welcome anyone interested in fitness or competitive swimming and can swim well enough to feel comfortable in the water.


Masters Swimming brings a variety of people together for workout fun and on occasion social events. Take your swimming to the next level and give us a try. We invite you to attend any practice. Show up on deck and introduce yourself to the coach. There is no tryout. We will let you swim for 30 days with no obligation. We ask that you are comfortable in the water and have some knowledge of how to swim freestyle. We’ll help you with the rest.
