Social Activities

Usually the club puts on two major get-togethers a year:

One at the end of the summer and one at Christmas.

These events are usually potluck affairs and are a great way to socialize with people who usually swim at the other end of the pool. There are also weekly breakfasts after the Saturday morning practices that 5-15 swimmers attend on a regular basis.

In addition, we hold one annual Masters-sponsored meet at Caltech called the Pentathlon ,which draws Masters swimmers from around southern California and is a major source of revenue for the club. The meet consists of 5 events: 50 yds butterfly, 50 back, 50 breast, 50 free, and the 100 individual medley. This event is usually held on the first or second Sunday in March. All Caltech swimmers are invited to compete, but swimmers who do not compete and family members are asked to volunteer as timers or other helpers. The Pentathlon is always a fun event with a good turnout.
