Member Validation Service
FROM USA SWIMMING:
The Member Data Validation Service for Clubs is Ready to Go!
USA Swimming is pleased to announce that the Member Data Validation Service for Clubs is now available for use.  The Member Data Validation Service provides for integrating club databases hosted by third-party swim team management software vendors with SWIMS, USA Swimming’s member database.  The goal of the service is to improve the quality of data for both the club and USA Swimming and to streamline the member registration process.
Depending on the vendor implementation, it provides club registrars with the ability to compare the information in their member database with the information in SWIMS to ensure they are in sync with each other.  Each club must give their third-party vendor permission ("activate" the vendor) to exchange club registration data with SWIMS on behalf of the club. 
At this time, the Member Data Validation Service is available to all clubs using Swim-Smarter or TeamUnify swim team management software.   ACTIVE Hy-Tek is in the process of making changes to their software and we will announce a launch date when that work is completed. 
Important information about the Member Data Validation Service is available at https://www.usaswimming.org/mdvs.  Here you will find information that includes:
  • FAQs about the Member Data Validation Service
  • Instructions on how the club can activate the Member Data Validation Service for their vendor
  • Access to the program that the club will use to Activate a Vendor
  • Links to TeamUnify Help & Training Articles
  • Links to training videos for LSC Registrars
Note that each vendor is responsible for providing training and support for the clubs that use their software.   Additionally, it is each vendor’s responsibility to notify the clubs that the Member Data Validation Service is available in their software and, if necessary, to assist them through the vendor activation process.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Thanks,
Denise
