USA Swimming:  Online Member Registration (OMR)

Instructions for SAC Families

The information below outlines specific steps SAC Families should take to complete the new OMR process.  This process is one of many new features available through the SWIMS 3.0 platform, launched by USA Swimming on September 1, 2022.  Please read the following information carefully and follow the steps required to register your athlete for the 2022-23 season. 

Non-athlete members of USA Swimming (coaches, officials, chaperones, and board members) will follow the same process to register or renew for the 2022-23 season.  SAC does reimburse for non-athlete membership fees.  Please contact Courtney in the SAC office for details. 


Important Information:

  • Families will need to create a new account with USA Swimming.  Previous accounts with USA Swimming are no longer valid or active.
  • Swimmers will have a new USA Swimming Member ID as of September 1, 2022.  This ID is a combination of letters and numbers randomly generated by USA Swimming and assigned to a swimmer.  Don’t try to understand it…just write it down somewhere.
  • Follow the steps below!   There are other resources available through USA Swimming, etc but the information outlined here has been created to eliminate unnecessary steps in an already complicated process for families. 
  • This will be easier in the future once families have an account and experience with the new platform.  In the meantime, be patient and ask questions.
  • If, and when, you get stuck on any page with a “Loading” message, please log out and log back into your account using your new account log in information.
