Welcome to the Bernardo’s All Stars website! This site was created to serve the needs of team members as well as promote the All Stars of Tacoma, WA! One of the more useful features of this site is our workout database, which is specific to our terminally unique 20-meter pool! By using the workout archive link and/or search function, one can sort and search for any type of workout that the team has previously done. Workouts are posted in the workout tab after they have been performed by the team.  This keeps you guessing about what the workout for the day will be.  We are working on transfering the photo library from the old website to this one.   A related links page will point you the direction to important sites, and a couple of other useful and fun things. Also stay connected with other team members with our FaceBook group Bernardo’s All Stars! So, have a look around. If you have questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact us!

We welcome all abilities from beginning lap swimmers to highly competitive ones.  In order to facilitate a smooth practice, swimmers of “like ability” swim in the same lane. In general, the slowest swimmers are in the end lanes, with faster and faster groups assigned to each lane towards the middle. While the basic workout is the same for each lane (in terms of the types of things that we will work on in practice), the coach tailors each workout to the ability of the swimmers in each lane on any given day. Masters swimming is not necessarily about competitions, racing, or getting ready for swim meets. It can be, but that depends on the goals and aspirations of each individual. We recognizes this and work with individual swimmers to achieve their desired goals. For some, it might be about getting a good low-impact workout. Others are working to improve their swimming for triathlon competitions. All of us, in one way or another, are gently guided to improve each aspect of our swimming–our stroke, turns, endurance, etc. 

Swimmers range in age from 19 to… well… significantly more than 19. If you swim, we are most certainly likely to have a lane that’s right for you! If you’re looking to get a good workout, make some friends, and improve your swimming while you’re at it, then Masters swimming sounds right for you!
