Club Tribe is a U.S. Masters swimming team in the Virginia LMSC, founded in 2014 by a few former William & Mary swimmers who just wanted to swim relays together at USMS meets. We currently have more than 50 swimmers across several states, ranging from 23 to 69 years old.

We have a fantastic group that trains regularly at Washington-Lee High School in Arlington, VA under the leadership of Michael Lovett (’00) (for practice info, email Michael at mlovett@gmail.com). Many of our team members train independently and/or with other training groups, which allows us to welcome teammates from across the region and nation. We have a wide range of ability and commitment levels, and we welcome swimmers of all ages who want to be part of a lively, fun, growing Masters team. Approximately 60% of our team members have prior affiliations with William & Mary, but this is by no means a requirement to join.  We currently have team members from more than 15 schools (ACC, Ivy League, SEC, Big Ten, CAA etc. etc.).

We currently do not charge to join or participate.
