Minnesota Swimming—Documents:  Coaches | Non-Athletes

Please note that USA Swimming memberships are only valid for ONE calendar year.  Non-athletes, Year round athletes, and club memberships all expire at the end of each calendar year.  Seasonal memberships are valid for about 4 months, typically from early April through late August of each year. Because the calendar year and the fiscal year overlap by 4 months, renewals of any Year-Round memberships may take place as early as September 1 and be valid for the next membership year (which will end on December 31 of the following calendar year). After August 31 of each year, we can no longer accept memberships from the previous registration year. Please use only the latest (most recently dated) forms (found below) and discard any old ones.

Please also note that Background Checks and Athlete Protection Training are required for all non-athlete members.

Not sure if your USA membership or certifications are current?

Log in to your Deck Pass (free from USA Swimming)
and click on your Member Card to see your expiration dates. 

 

New for 2017: Non-Athlete Membership Cards will no longer be printed/mailed

Beginning with the 2017 membership year, membership cards for Non-athletes members are no longer provided by USA Swimming. If you wish to print a card, you may do so by creating an account on the USA Swimming website. Then log into your account. Go to “Member Resources/For Everyone/Deck Pass”. This will match to your record on the SWIMS database. Look under “Membership Requirements” to find your Membership Card. From there you will have the option to print your card. You may also show your membership status on your Deck Pass Mobile device app. This also shows the expiration dates of your Background Check and Athlete Protection Training.
