Central Illinois Masters Swim Team promotes physical fitness, mental wellbeing, and camaraderie through swimming at all levels.  

Practices at IWU Pool: The team swims on Monday & Wednesday mornings from 5:30 - 6:30 a.m.  Here are details and COVID restrictions:
 
  • The Shirk Center is locked until 5:15 a.m. and will remain open until 5:25.
  • CIMST members are to use the back/north entrance by the pool (not Emerson Street).
  • Masks are required to enter the building and pool.  They are to be worn at all times except when in the water.
  • Forehead temperature will be taken upon entering the building.  Temperatures above 100.3 or symptoms of current illness will not be allowed to swim.
  • CIMST members use the double doors in the lobby to enter the pool and hands must be sanitized before entering (sanitizer provided by the team).
  • Locker rooms are not open.  Suits should be worn under clothes or warm ups.  Bathrooms are available with one person at a time.
  • Upon entering the pool, there are marks on the deck and walls for belongings.  These are separated to comply with social distancing. 
  • IWU equipment and towels are not available.

  • Space must be reserved for each practice.  Reservations should be made by 6:00 PM of the day before the practice.  Here is the link: Practice Reservations
Since it will take several minutes to handle the entrance to the building, practice will be 50 - 55 minutes in length.  There will be a "hard" exit from the water at 6:30 a.m.  Note that if you arrive at the building after 5:25 a.m., you will not be able to swim that morning.
