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 (*).

Example:John Chu would be mmddyyjoh*chu*.
