Team Calendar


The Fins Aquatics Club is Philadelphia's gay and lesbian masters swim team.  Our members range from swimmers who have never competed to first time competitors to national record holders.  We welcome swimmers of all ages, skill levels, genders and orientations. The team provides challenging, well-organized, coached work-outs.  Some members focus on local, regional, national or international swimming  competitions and/or triathlons.  Others swim to keep fit

When we aren't working out, we often hang out together just for fun, whether for meals after practice, bike rides, participating at Philadelphia's various gay festivals or for other special events.

The Fins Aquatics Club is affiliated with International Gay & Lesbian Aquatics and US Masters Swimming.
