Masters Swim Clinics and Events

Go the Distance | Sunday School Clinics | Fraterniy of Flyers


Go the Distance Challange (GTD) 

  • This is an ongoing and FREE event sponsored by USMS and the North Texas Local Masters Swim Committee (NTLMSC) that we encourage everyone to sign up for! Log your swims regularly and potentially earn awards as your reach your distance goals throughout the year.
  • One of the benefits is a team award that donates 7 cents/mile back to Pegasus Aquatics so you can help suppport the ongoing Pegasus program just by swimming regularly and logging your swims. 
  • Cash awards earned from your distance will go directly to the Pegasus Aquatics Scholarship program, giving boys and girls from all walks of life a chance to learn to swim and play water polo. And as all of you hopefully know, you can't play water polo if you can't swim. Logging your miles over the course of a year may help provide a special opportunity to a young athlete. 
  • Must be registered with PAMS as your USMS club for the year for logged miles to count toward Pegasus Aquatics.

For more information and to get signed up visit the USMS Go the Distance page and start logging your swims.
