Think like a human...Swim like a Grunion!

The Long Beach Grunions are a fun, high-energy USMS swim team promoting diversity and inclusion. We offer a supportive swim environment with helpful coaches and workouts for swimmers of all skill levels.

We have over 100 people on the team. Our team ranges in age from 19 to 80+ years old. We have swimmers of all abilities, from beginners to competitive swimmers.

We encourage anyone interested in swimming to come join our workouts! Get ready for some great exercise and fun!


We have eight practices a week. All practices include an on-deck coach instructing swimmers throughout the workout. Please see the calendar for our current schedule.*


You’ll find the Grunions at regional, national and international masters meets. Competition is not required for our members, just enthusiastically recommended!

Outside the pool, our social events and fundraisers are great opportunities to meet your teammates and make new friends.
