Mary in Omaha, Nebraska, and who is in her third year coaching the Hoover Hurricanes youth swim team, agreed to work with them as a private coach. So she gives them pointers on technique and helps them plan their practices.

Two of the seniors competed in the National Senior Games, which were held in Birmingham in June, and all of them competed in the District 5 competition for the Masters Games of Alabama in August.

There were only 11 swimming competitors in the district competition, which covered Jefferson, Shelby, Chilton and Walker counties, and the majority of the Hoover swimmers placed first in their age division, said Torrey Teal, the aquatics manager at the Rec Center. All of them qualified to go to the state meet, she said. There also are nine events, including the meter backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle and meter and meter races of the same strokes.

Each competitor is limited to six events, and most of the Hoover swimmers do four to six events each, Teal said. Coaching senior adults is very different than coaching youth, McKleroy said. Also, she has been teaching them how to do flip turns, but some were reluctant due to vertigo issues, she said. She also plans their interval workouts at a slower pace and thus far has not made them do core workouts outside the pool before they begin, she said.

Walston said she started swimming as a child and even coached a competitive youth swim team when she was a teenager in Wisconsin, but that was because there was no one else to do it, she said.
