How Do I Know My Swimmer's USA Swimming ID Number?

Occasionally you will need the swimmer's USA Swimming ID to fill out applications and forms.

Here is how is an explanation of the number and how it is generated so each swimmer can figure out his/her number:

A unique 14 part number assigned to each swimmer once registered.

The first 6 digits are the swimmers birth date: mm/dd/yy; the next three letters
are the first three letters of athletes legal first name; the next letter is the middle
initial, followed by the first four letters of the swimmers last name

Example: Suzanne Eileen Nelson and born Aug 27, 1976 = 082776SUZENELS

If you do not have a middle initial or last name four letters or
longer, the missing characters are a star (*). John Chu would be mmddyyjoh*chu*.
