The New Member Party is ON!
Date:  Saturday, November 1st
Time and Location:  Get the full info at practice or from the team eVite.
More Info: With creative attire encouraged (but not required), it's a Halloween party that gets the Catfish in costume to hang out with zombies and vampires they know, as well as super heroes and cartoon characters they don't know.  Show up for the food, drink, haunted house, and a great group of fellow Catfish and friends!
NU Breast Cancer Fundraiser Swim
Date: Wednesday, October 29th
Time:  5:00pm - 7:00pm
Registration:   Event Website
Entry Deadline:  Sunday, October 19th
More Info:  It's the 3rd-annual "Breaststroke 4 Breast Cancer" event, hosted by the Northwestern Swim Team.  Participation is $15 per person, which includes admission to SPAC, so the fee is all a breast cancer research.  It's a one-hour relay - see how far your team can go, but it's not officially competitive or anything like that.  Basically, it's a fun evening of swimming for a great cause.

Winter 2014-15 Registration Is Here!

Evanston Masters 2014-15 Winter Season
Winter 2014-15 is now underway.  We're working on improving our strokes and building our way to some fast swims this season.
Thinking about joining?  Evanston Masters (aka, The Wild Catfish) is a masters swim team that strives to provide quality workouts and plenty of social fun.

Looking to get in shape or stay in shape?  We have nine graduated lanes, starting with novice lap swimmers and ending with former college swimmers.  Our age range is roughly 19 to 80.  Our practices typical have one coach covering three lanes, with each coach running the practice and providing advice on technique.

Looking to meet some fellow swimmers and hang out?  In addition to the camaraderie with the folks in your lane, you’ll probably enjoy the Catfish team parties and post-practice social outings that are scheduled throughout the season.

The first time is always a bit scary, of course.  Just show up, meet the coaches and swimmers, and try a couple of free practices.  You'll love it!

The Winter 2014-15 Schedule:
  • Tuesday: 7:30-9:00 PM
  • Thursday: 7:30-9:00 PM
  • Saturday: 6:30-8:00 AM and 3:30-5:00 PM
  • Sunday: 6:30-8:00 AM and 3:30-5:00 PM
The pool is in the building on the SW corner of Dodge and Church.  Street parking is free.

The December and January Invites

The Wild Catfish would like to thank the swimmers and the volunteers who helped us make two Sunday mornings of great swimming happen.  We are already looking forward to next year!
