Welcome Back Brunch

Sept Brunch

Hi everyone,

A new season is starting for the Edmonton Masters Swim Club and that means a new chance to make friends and see old ones. On the last Sunday of the month after practice, you’re invited to join us for brunch.

Practice will start early that day (9 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. at the Kinsmen) so we can make it to Earl’s Tin Palace (11830 Jasper Ave.) for their great happy hour brunch prices on delicious items like waffles, eggs Benedict and so much more. There’s parking available as well.

Please RSVP to social@edmontonmasters.org and feel free to bring friends. See you there…and in the pool!

Faster Freestyle Workshops in Edmonton

Monday, September 23 from 6 to 9 PM

Coach Karlyn Pipes from Kona, Hawaii wants to HELP YOU SWIM FASTER WITH LESS EFFORT!

This past year, Hall of Fame Swimmer and swim technique coach Karlyn Pipes changed her technique in all of the four competitive strokes.

WHY would someone so fast, so accomplished…make a change? Because she was dissatisfied with her swimming! Even though Karlyn has set 233 FINA Masters World records to date, she was seeking something better, faster and EASIER. Well, she has found “it” and would love to share these same techniques with you!

Please consider attending the workshop (and tell a friend) so Karlyn can help YOU find your better, faster and easier too.

This workshop begins the first hour in a classroom setting discussing past and present freestyle swim techniques. Students will then enter the water where Karlyn will begin with the basics: breathing, balance and body awareness. Karlyn will then gradually build into the step-by-step freestyle stroke progression that is designed to help YOU swim a faster and more efficient freestyle. At the end of the session you will be a faster swimmer, guaranteed!

Cost is $125. Hurry space is limited and there are only a few spots left!

Register by completing this form. If you have any questions please email president@edmontonmasters.org

About: Karlyn was inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame in 2015 for setting over 233 FINA Masters World records. However, Karlyn is equally amazing as a stroke technique coach who loves helping swimmers of all ages and abilities learn how to swim faster with less effort.  For more about Karlyn please visit www.Karlynpipes.com

Visit Karlyn’s YouTube channel for videos demonstrating the techniques she uses and teaches: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNozSUnZ1jO1553iL2BCVMQ/videos

Here’s a fun podcast from Ironman last year discussing Karlyn’s teaching techniques with Kristian Manietta from Trispecific: https://www.trispecific.com/fb229-karlyn-pipes-kona-2017/
