In January of 2023 a new masters team was launched in Vancouver, WA, at the Clark County YMCA. The new team, Clark County YMCA Masters (CCYM) offers workouts Monday through Saturday. The team is led by head coach David Crippen with assistance from Colette Crabbe, Arlene Delmage, and Valerie Jenkins.
The small but enthusiastic group has really enjoyed getting to know one another and working out together. We are excited to be bringing a small group to the Association Meet in Bend in May.
A second workout group also started around the same time. Gold Aquatics Club Masters (GACC) is a workout group in Camas Washington. The team trains in the 8-lane 25m pool at the former Lacamas Athletic Club, now Gold’s Gym Camas. Workout times are 10-11 AM Monday-Friday and 8-9 AM on Saturday. The group has about 25 members and typically has 12-15 swimmers at each workout. The team is coached by Westley Mejias.
