Ensworth Aquatics Masters (ENSW) is a registered club with U.S. Masters Swimming (USMS) and is made up of an incredibly diverse group of athletes. 
 
Ages of our swimmers currently stretch from 20 to 80 years old.
 
Swimming Abilities of our teammates comprise a very wide range. The collective past experiences of our team members include swimming in the Olympics, college swimming, high school participation, summer-league swimming as kids, as well as merely wading in lakes or playing in baby pools in the past.  
 
Goals of our teammates range from aiming to score at USMS Nationals Swimming Championships, to participating in local swim meets, competing in Ironman triathlons, trying to complete a first-ever sprint triathlon, attempting open water swims, swimming for fitness only, learning all four strokes, and learning how to swim with proper technique and not sink.
 
Our athletes are guided by experienced coaches who are passionate about swimming and driven by a desire to help athletes improve their fitness, speed, and confidence in the water. We are proud to be a cohesive group of team members, who share a wonderful camaraderie and provide a welcoming environment to visitors and anyone new to the team. We hope you will feel free to stop by and give us a try.
