Who We Are
Rogue Valley Masters is a workout group registered under the Oregon Masters Swimming Local Masters Sanctioning Club (LMSC). We welcome all to come swim with us! Most of us swim for fitness, while several of us also like to compete. Rogue Valley Masters (RVM) was founded in Ashland, Oregon and is a community-based swim team with dedicated swimmers of all ages and abilities. Currently, we share coaching responsibilities among our members, rotating each swimmer through a schedule. It allows for variety in the workouts and lowers our operational costs. Feel free to contact us via email. We can also be contacted on our Rogue Valley Masters Facebook Page.
Where We Swim
Rogue Valley Masters swims at Daniel Meyer Pool in Ashland, Oregon. Daniel Meyer is currently closed for repairs, so we are swimming at the local YMCAs during lap swims, typically M/W/F at 6:00am.
- Monday through Friday from 5:45am to 7:00am
- Sunday from 8:00am to 9:30am
There are Men’s and Women’s locker rooms with doors opening to the pool deck. Lockers are available but please bring your own lock. Showers are typically hot! During the winter, locker rooms are heated and the pool deck can be quite cold, so please prepare accordingly.
IMPORTANT: USMS Requirements
All swimmers must be a registered member of United States Masters Swimming (USMS) or be in a pre-approved 30-day consecutive trial period. To obtain a trial waiver, please contact the Oregon Masters Registrar, Susie Young, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 503-475-8004.
