Walnut Creek Masters Swim Team welcomes continuing and new members to our 2018 on-line registration. We look forward to a robust 2018 swimming year, featuring challenging and varied daily workouts for our members, the camaraderie of swimming with your friends, a full schedule of Pacific Masters Association competitive swim meets including our hosted meets in April and October, another Pacific Masters Open Water competition schedule,  the opportunity to participate in our innovative Adult Learn to Swim teaching program, social activities, and a few surprise events from  expert staff of coaches led by award-winning Masters Coach Kerry O’Brien. There’s something for swimmers of all levels in our Programs, whether you are a novice swimmer, a fitness swimmer, or a competitive swimmer.

For continuing members:

We had a successful financial year in 2017 despite the cancellation of our hosted Pacific Masters Short Course Meters meet due to unsafe weather conditions.  We are able to give raises to our coaches for 2018 without raising our member fees. We're keeping our fees as low as possible with the hope that members who are able will make voluntary donations as they register (see below.)  All continuing members should follow the link on our home page to renew their membership. Please be sure that your credit card information is up to date and that you register using the account name currently on file (duplicate memberships cause headaches for our back office staff.) If you need help accessing your member account, please contact Bosco.  If you find it necessary to request special financial arrangements please also contact Bosco for a confidential discussion.

For new members:

The following brief information should help you understand our unique array of membership options.  If you plan on participating in a heavy schedule of workouts throughout the year (averaging more than 3 per week, including Saturday workouts) we offer unlimited annual membership workout plans. You may choose to pay an annual membership fee, or alternatively a monthly payment plan. In either case you will receive a membership card that will enable you to pass through the front desk at Clarke Pool anytime between 5:30 am and 1 PM, and from 7 PM to 8 PM to participate in our scheduled workouts or an individual workout of your own.

If you do not plan to be a frequent workout participant, our “Annual Membership – Pool Pass Separate” plan may be best for you. With this plan your WCM expense depends upon how frequently you participate in workouts.  You pay an initial WCM membership fee and you receive your membership card that enables you to pass through the Clarke Pool front desk for 15 WCM workouts. You may request additional workouts on your account at any time using the link on our home page. When your request additional workouts, your credit card account will be charged an additional $73 and your pool entry account will be increased for 15 additional workouts. We encourage you to purchase more than a single 15-workout pass if you are able.

New members who register in November and December for 2018 can use their new memberships for the remainder of 2017.   Please contact Harold Boscovich directly (email: hboscovi@pacbell.net)  regarding using your new membership for the remainder of 2017.  You will need to register for 2018 via the online registration process.

All Members must first separately register with USMS

Note:  All continuing and new WCM members must separately register with USMS for 2018 before their WCM membership can be accepted. USMS registration will require a separate fee and payment.  If you have not already registered with US Masters Swimming, please do so now:  http://www.usms.org/reg/register.php

A Special Message About Donations

All WCM members registering for 2018 are once again encouraged to consider making a voluntary donation to WCM.  This year we are again counting on member donations to help supplement our member fees and to help fund modest pay raises for our coaches. As you register you will navigate through the voluntary donations screen which includes a link to the WCM donation screen, where you can charge your donation to your credit card on file. Also, anyone at any time may make a donation using the link on our website home page.  WCM is a recognized tax-exempt organization and donations are potentially tax deductible for you - check with your tax advisor.

We hope you will again consider making a voluntary donation to WCM as you register for 2018.  WCM is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization recognized by the IRS that can accept potentially tax deductible donations (check with your tax advisor).  We have not raised our 2018 member fees with the expectation that members who are able will continue to make voluntary contributions to supplement our other income sources. Donations will help us fund modest coach pay raises in 2018 and cover additional 2018 expense increases, such as pool lane rental fees and rising health care costs for coaches.  We rely on donations to cover about 10% of our annual operating costs and to keep our regular member fees as low as possible.  

You may either make a donation at this time during your registration or anytime during the year using the link on our website home-page.


We appreciate your donation.
