Pool squads in LA / Orange County
edited October 2012 in Locations & Networking
I am visiting LA from the 27 October to 7 November for work. I am looking for a (pool) swim squad while I am there. Will be staying in Orange County for first 6 days, followed by Santa Monica. Can anyone recommend a good squad that caters for long-distance/open water swimmers? I am not particularly fast (just turned 40)...can sit comfortably on 1.20 on 100m, 2.45 on 200, 5.40 on 400s. Looking for a squad that starts early (5.30AM) and runs for 1.5 hours. Am also a masters swimmer. Any ideas would be most appreciated.
Orange County is a huge place, so it would help to know where specifically you're staying. Irvine NOVA and Mission Viejo are a couple of the better known squads.
Also, 1:20 per 100m would be considered "fast" for most adult masters teams.
And 40 isn't old.
