CIBBOWS - Coney Island Brighton Beach Open Water Swimmers

Coney Island Brighton Beach Open Water Swimmers (CIBBOWS) is an open water swimming group that trains off Coney Island and Brighton Beach in New York City. 

Our goal is to promote open water swimming and to maintain the water quality for the rivers and beaches of New York City. We want to provide a safe and clean training environment. We also provide guidance and resources for training for long distance swims, such as MIMS and the English Channel. We welcome swimmers of all ages and abilities.

US Masters Swimming

We are swimming for life for all ages. USMS is a national organization of more than 42,000 members that provides organized workouts, competitions, clinics and workshops for adults aged 18 and over. Membership in USMS is administered by your Local Masters Swim Committee (LMSC). To join USMS, you may find registration information on your LMSC web site, or you will need to contact your local Registrar. To find either of these, check the LMSC Info page. If no local web site is listed, check the officers listing to find out how to contact your local Registrar.

Metropolitan Masters

As an individual, you may choose to join a team or club and enjoy the camaraderie and structure of the group. Competition is optional. Only 30% or so of Masters swimmers compete in swimming meets on a regular basis.

For those who are serious competitors, there are an incredible number of opportunities to test your skill and conditioning. Short Course (25 yard and 25 meter) and Long Course (50 meter) pool meets, lake and ocean open water swims, postal meets, special events and international championships are all part of an ambitious program of Masters swimming.

Masters swimming in New York City, Long Island and the Lower Hudson Valley (which includes Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster and Westchester Counties) is governed by the Metropolitan LMSC which itself over 1,400 members strong in more than 30 teams.
