Starting November 1st, you will be able to renew your USMS Memberships online. In the next few weeks, you should be receiving a customized USMS link for renewal if you are already registered. You can conveniently pay for the USMS dues, Potomac Valley dues, and ARMS dues all at once again this year. The cost of renewal is $60. If you aren’t registered by January 1st, you won’t be able to practice until this is done.
Also effective November 1st, those who are new to the team will be asked to complete a swimming placement assessment- the ability to swim 100 yards freestyle in under two minutes. All swimmers who are currently on the team will be grandfathered in, but this will be enforced for new members. Our goal is to create a baseline for the team, which has been used by other masters programs, and provide informative coaching for all the lanes.
The deadline to sign up for the Sprint Classic at GMU is October 20th. For more info, please click here.
Finally, the annual holiday party will be held on Friday December 11th from 7-10pm at Steven Thames apartment’s community room. Please bring a dish to share. We will have door prizes and other fun events planned!
