Welcome to GLAD Masters Swim club
Who We Are
GLAD -- Green Lake Aqua Ducks -- is a member of both the national master swimmers organization -- United States Masters Swimmers (USMS) -- and the regional Pacific Northwest Association of Master Swimmers (PNA).
GLAD has been an active club for motivated adult swimmers since 1989. In keeping with the tenets of masters swimming, GLAD is open to swimmers with a wide range of abilities although workouts are intended to be challenging with the goal of building endurance and pace, as well as improving stroke technique. Lanes are arranged according to speed to the extent possible. Lane placement is determined by our coach in consultation with each swimmer.
Members of GLAD participate in various PNA swim meets during the year, particularly the annual PNA Champs event which is typically held in April at the King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way. Click here for the PNA calendar.
GLAD sponsors and organizes the annual Fat Salmon Open Water swim each summer on Lake Washington. Information about Fat Salmon is available here.
In addition to keeping current with GLAD dues or paying the drop-in fee (see below for details), all those in the pool for our workouts must be current members of USMS.
