Happy New Year!

Starting today, if you do not have a current USMS membership, you will be turned away at practice. The cost of renewal is $65 (which includes USMS, Zone and ARMS fees all in one). The link to renew here. Bring proof of membership (either printed or via cellphone) to the front desk, where the front desk volunteer will be checking you off a list once you have renewed. USMS membership is necessary for liability and insurance.

  • Finally, the annual Tropical Splash Meet will be held in Alexandria, VA on Sunday January 28th. This is a great meet to ease back into competitive swimming. The registration deadline is January 19th. More info to follow!
