Masters club in boston?

Steven,

I lived and swam in Boston about 10 years ago.  There
were 2 Masters groups there that I swam with at various
times.

One was at the Huntington YMCA - I'm sure you could
call them and see if they're still in existence.

Also, there's a Masters group that swims at the MIT
pool in Cambridge.  The MIT Pool number should be in
the phone book there; I'm not certain if you need to
have any special MIT connection (my wife worked there)
or not to get in but it's a very nice pool and
certainly worth a try.

Steven-
Check out our "Swimmers Guide Online" site at http://lornet.com/~SGOL.
We have 37 pools listed in Boston, 5 or 6 of them with Masters contact
information.  There's another 6 pools Cambridge, one of them has a
Masters group, too.  The USMS Web site (http://www.usms.org) has a
search facility for clubs nation-wide and the New England Masters LMSC
(http://www.unb.ca/Masters_swimming/indexNEM.html) also has a club list.

The Boston area certainly has a reasonable number of Masters
programs. However, they have (of late) been running quite near full.

I co-administer the MIT Masters Program. We are completely full for this
term (until Memorial Day). I've heard that BU has slots open for the
very early morning times, but have not verified that of late.

The MIT program runs late evenings (8:30-10pm). Once the new MIT pool
opens (not for another couple of years...) we will be adding more
sessions (probably morning and midday in addition to our current late
night).
