Swimmin' San Diego Since 1985

 

Different Strokes Swim Team is San Diego's uniquely supportive and welcoming organization benefiting the LGBTQIA+ community to foster fun, well-being, and health through sport, competition, and social events as a member club of US Masters Swimming. DSST promotes swimming as a form of exercise and lifelong friendships regardless of age (18+), gender, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, or ability. Outreach and support to LGBTQIA+ communities continues to be an essential element of our mission.

We offer 5 coached practices per week throughout the year and ocean swimming in the summer months. Train for fitness, fun, or an upcoming event. While not a requirement, our members love to compete locally and nationally through US Masters Swimming (USMS). We also compete internationally through International Gay and Lesbian Aquatics (IGLA), and placed 4th overall most recently.

Our members can't get enough of each other! Aside from the pool, you'll find them grabbing a bite to eat after practice, hanging out together around Hillcrest, or attending one of DSST's many social events. See our Facebook and Instagram pages for highlights.

While all are welcome to join, outreach and support to LGBTQIA+ communities continues to be an essential element of our mission. Regardless of how you identify, we think you will find a uniquely supportive and affirming community that feels like family. Some of the ways we support the local community are by participating in San Diego Pride and hosting our annual Bart Hopple Memorial Fundraiser.
