We are also offering an outdoor Masters Adult Swim Clinic. Masters is a swimming program offering adults more opportunities for various swimming workouts. Through the guidance from our coaches, you can learn new tips, drills, and ideas covering all four swim strokes. If you are preparing for a meet, open water swimming, or want to improve your endurance or technique, the Masters program is a productive and fun way to achieve your swimming goals in a supportive and friendly environment!

On hot summer days, Aqua Zumba® is a great way to stay cool! Aqua Zumba® blends the Zumba® philosophy with water resistance. There is less impact on your joints during an Aqua Zumba class so you can really benefit. Water creates natural resistance, which means every step is more challenging and helps tone your muscles. Classes are held at the Florham Park Municipal pool for current Madison Area Y members.

To learn more about all of our current outdoor aquatics offerings and to register for the above programs, visit Contact Competitive Aquatics Director Jon Siegel at for more information. We look forward to seeing you in the pool soon!
