6. US Masters Swimming

6.1. What is Masters Swimming?

6.1.1. USMS is a national membership-operated nonprofit organization that provides membership benefits to nearly 60,000 Masters swimmers across the country. These benefits include insurance, SWIMMER magazine, sanctioned events, and many others. (Click arrow symbol to view membership benefits.)

6.1.2. USMS and its 52 Local Masters Swimming Committees (LMSCs) provide direct support to more than 1,500 Masters Swimming clubs and workout groups.

6.1.3. Structure and organization of USMS programs vary and are driven by factors such as pool availability, instructor or coach availability, community support, and finances. The majority of locations offering Masters Swimming programs have coaches on deck. Coaches write workouts and provide feedback and instruction.

6.2. How to join as an individual

6.2.1. Cost

6.2.1.1. An individual US Masters membership would run you $44 for a year.

6.2.2. Signing up online

6.2.2.1. Go to the USMS site.

6.2.2.2. Select "Bad News Penguins" as your club.

6.2.2.3. Pay via credit card.

6.2.2.4. Receive a membership card like this.

6.3. Meets

6.3.1. Individual members can participate in as many Masters-sanctioned meets as they want.

6.3.1.1. USMS allows one-event registration for some, but not all, of its meets. The normal "ask" is $15-20.

6.3.1.2. So if you intend to participate in more than two meets, it makes financial sense to join USMS.
