What is U.S. Masters Swimming?

U.S. Masters Swimming (USMS) was founded in 1970. A non-profit corporation, USMS supports more than 1000 adult swim programs in 52 regions throughout the United States. They have more than 50,000 individual members, ranging in age from 18 to over 100. On the local level, most USMS swim programs offer structured practices and training assistance from trained swim coaches. Pool and open water races provide opportunities to compete and measure individual progress at the local, state, national, and international levels. USMS programs also offer stroke and technique clinics, workshops, instruction, and social functions. USMS programs draw people from all walks of life and provide their members with a community that offers active support for a healthy lifestyle through aquatic fitness, friendship, and camaraderie.

The focus of this program is to provide structured workouts for swimmers. This program differs from lap swimming in that a coach will be at all practices to give feedback including stroke refinement. The coaches will adapt the workouts to meet your needs and goals while providing a fun and challenging workout for all.  Masters Swimmers fall under the Fort Leavenworth Lancers and will follow all rules and regulations of the Lancers.

USMS organization is composed of several zones, regions and local clubs. For example, the Lancers is our local club and we are in the Missouri Valley region. Competition is based on this organizational structure with local, regional, zone and national championships.
