How to join USMS
REGISTER: To join USMS simply print out and complete BOTH SIDES of the individual 2017 registration form and send it in to the address on the form along with a check for the registration fee. Note that you can type directly into this form and then print it out. Please remember to sign the form. Within a very short time you will receive your registration card (if you want one) with your registration number. Keep this card handy, as any USMS registered event or workout you attend as a visitor you will need to show your card.
TRYOUT: To try-out for masters (max 30 days - one time only lifetime. Filed with USMS), Print out and complete BOTH SIDES of the new individual 2014 TRYOUT form. This form is turned into club, and the club files a copy of both sides with USMS.

One event registration for individuals
We are currently not registering One-Event member.
A) Existing Clubs should re-register each year after October 1st, and before October 31st either:
A club must be registered for the year before individual swimmers can be registered with that club.
B) New Clubs (new in 2014) may register like an existing club with link or paper app above.
C) Workout Groups are used to have multiple "teams" under one USMS Team Name that compete AGAINST each other in Hawaii based competition, but as teammates in national competition (relays). Workout Groups still have to pay USMS as though you were a complete club, so the best alternative is to just register with HIMA or a local club you might swim with.
