Saturday Coached Swims

Coached Swim Workouts


A fun and engaging 60 minute swim session for swimmers aged 12 and above. Coached sessions are led by avid swimmer Mark Kinney and are held from September to June. Each week you will be coached in an aerobic swim workout that includes all strokes, using a structured format (warm-up, drill/prep set, main set, and cool down). 


8am-9am Saturday mornings.


Alpena County Plaza Pool, the best pool in northeast Michigan!


Be encouraged, get better, get stronger, have fun! This is a stroke development and refinement program, not swim lessons. Be prepared to grow and improve as an all-around swimmer!


Ages 12 to 102


The registration fee is $5 for members of both Plaza Pool and Friends of Plaza Pool, $10 for persons who are not members of these organizations.  Fee is paid at the life guard table at the pool, or by arrangement with Friends of Plaza Pool.


Each new swimmer will be asked to complete an evaluation swim.  At this session, everyone will swim a 100-yard freestyle for time.  All swimmers must sign a liability release
