Our Goal

Our goal is to have you deep water safe and able to swim 50 yards.  In return, we hope that you add swimming to your exercise routine.  

There are many swimming groups in our area to help you stay motivated. I would love it if you joined ours.

Let’s get started!

How it Works

Sacswim4life is a non-profit adult learn to swim program offered to you by the Sierra Marlins Masters Swim Team and United States Masters Swimming.

Your instructor is Joe Dowd.   He has been working with adults since 1987.  

About us

Sacramento's Non-Profit Adult Learn to Swim Program.

Our program is applying for a grant through the United States Masters Swimming Saves Lives Foundation to cover operating cost. 

Your first eight lessons cost $50 which also gives you a United States Masters Membership. This membership covers our insurance and so much more.  Find out more about USMS here.  (http://www.usms.org/gettingstarted/faq.php?utm_campaign=top_nav&utm_medium=about_usms)  If you cannot afford the $50 membership, arrangements will be made.
