Does anyone know if the Sunday CUBU swims (6:15 - 7:00 PM I think) at AU are still happening?
If so, is there a drop in Masters session at the same time?
Hey! The new CUBU swim sessions at AU start this sunday, usually from 6:15-730p. I am not exactly sure about Master's but from what I recall, there is always a lane or two dedicated to the Master's swim on sunday evenings.
Curl Burke Sunday Night swimming practices and clinics are resuming on November 22nd. Practice will be held at the Reeves Aquatic center on the American University Main Campus. Practice begins at 6:15 pm and ends at 7:30 pm. The cost is $75 for a 6 week session, paid at the first session. There will be beginners, intermediate and advanced groups oriented to triathletes. Each group will have an excellent coach to swimmer ratio. The beginner group will focus extensively on stroke mechanics and body position. The intermediate group will continue to improve technique as well as introduce the fundamentals of interval training and pace work and begin to develop endurance. The advance group will receive a Masters level swim practice geared towards distance and open water events. Swimmers will be placed in groups based on ability. Please do not hesitate to contact us with additional questions.

FYI - In case anyone else is interested, I heard the next set of 6 swim practice/classes start Sunday, Jan 3, 6:15-7:30PM.
Has anyone taken these? If so, how where they? The price seems pretty low for 6 sessions.
Yes, it's a fantastically low price, for a special fantastic deal for DC Tri Club.
The sessions are fantastic, too. Sadly, I haven't been in a long time....but hope to get there soon!
i've taken a bunch of them and they're totally awesome. very individualized attention, tough workouts, and lots of encouragement.
Swim Clinic at AU participants: due to emergency repairs, the AU pool will be closed Dec 14-21.
Therefore the last two clinic dates are Saturday Dec 12 at 5:15pm-6:15pm and Sunday Dec 13 at 5:15pm-6:15pm. We continue to offer addition swim times during our regularly scheduled swim practices. See www.cubu-masters.org for practice times.
