Princeton Area Masters Program

Founded in 1971-72 by Tink Bolster, Princeton Area Masters (PAM) is the oldest Masters Swim Program in continuing operation in the State of New Jersey.  The program is for adults who are 18 years of age and older.  Members participate in a variety of ways, ranging from fitness lap swimming to competition training.  United States Masters Swimming (USMS; www.usms.org) insurance card is required to swim during the indoor season at DeNunzio Pool at Princeton University.  USMS membership is not required for the outdoor summer season at Community Park Pool because PAM is part of the Princeton Recreation Dept. program, which insures everyone who uses the outdoor pool.
