About Us…

The Middlebury Muffintops officially began in 2006, although many of its founding members swam for years as elite members of the Royal Order of the Water Buffalo.

The Muffintops include swimmers of all levels; some train for fitness, some train for triathlons, others train for local and national swimming competitions. All of us train for fun. Workouts are held at Middlebury College’s state-of-the-art 50 meter x 25 yard pool. Typically, there are 2-3 practices a week with an average workout distance of about 3000 yards. During the summers we also gather at Lake Dunmore for organized open swims—in fact, our most well-insulated (and arguably most insane) Muffintops break through the ice and begin open swimming in May.

To join the Muffintops, you must register with New England Masters Swimming and pay an annual registration fee (www.swimnem.org).

These past Muffintop workouts can be used to get an idea of the type of workouts our team does and to use if you are on the road, or unable to train with the Muffintops.
