What is SilverPeak Performance?
We are a USMS (United States Masters Swimming) Swim Team and Triathlon team based in Los Angeles. SPP is a non-profit organization whose mission is to make the sports of swimming and triathlon more accessible to our community.
What is United States Masters Swimming?
USMS is a national membership-operated nonprofit organization that provides membership benefits to nearly 60,000 Masters swimmers across the country. You can read all sorts of good scoop on USMS here.
Do I have to be a member of USMS to join SilverPeak Performance?
Initially, no. You can sign up for a 30 day trial membership with USMS before paying the registration fee. However, USMS is the organization who insures our swim team, so we will ask you to register with USMS after 60 days. PLUS – if you decide eventually to compete in swim meets, you’ll need to be a member.
Does it cost money to join your team?
We are a membership club and we do operate on a monthly dues system. Dues are $75. We offer a Family Plan (two members of the same household) at $90 monthly.
Do I have to sign a contract?
Our members can pay month-to-month. You CAN pay for your year upfront and get a discount of one month ($825 for the year)
Where do you practice?
SPP-Land is located at Glassell Park Swimming Pool at 3704 Verdugo Road in Los Angeles.
**From January 3-31, 2018, we will be working out Monday through Friday at the Aquatic Center at Pasadena City College, 1570 E. Colorado Blvd.

What equipment do I need?
A swimming suit, of course. SPP has some equipment on deck that you can use at practice, but Coach Charles strongly recommends investing in your own equipment. A well-prepared swimmer will have:
All of these items can be purchased at our Team Store at Swim Outlet.
You will receive an SPP swim cap at your first practice. The first cap is free; replacements are $5 each.
Is swimming fun?
WHAT? Are you kidding? Swimming is amazing. Low impact, high calorie burn, concentrate on your VO2 numbers, challenge yourself to the highest limits!! You’ll find muscles you never knew you had!
Do I have to compete to workout with you guys?
Nope. You are more than welcome to compete at any event of your choosing – or not at all. Your choice completely.
I’m a triathlete. Why should I join you guys?
Our Head Coach, Charles McPeak, is also a triathlete. His workouts are geared towards the Master’s Swimmer and the Triathlete. Our workouts will help you become a more relaxed and efficient swimmer…which will make you a much stronger triathlete. Several IRONMAN finishers have had great success working out with our team.
