Thanks for your interest in CAT’s Masters program.

Our Masters team meets three times a week: Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 5:30am-7:00am at the Central Clemson Rec Center, and Saturday mornings 10am-noon at the Fike Recreation Center on Clemson's Campus. 

There are many differing backgrounds and skill levels on our group - triathletes, former collegiate swimmers, weekend warriors, and fitness enthusiasts. Whatever your skill level is, we can help you reach your goals. 

The fees for CAT are as follows; registration fee of $71.00; $75.00 per month (credit card or check, whichever you prefer).  Registrations fees must be paid each August/September (beginning of our swim season).

To swim with CAT, please go to our website, and register online. Once that's done, there will be an email sent to you with a password and login name. The registration must be done before the first day you want to swim with us. 

You must also join US Masters Swimming - memberships run a calendar year and must be renewed to remain an active member of CAT.

NEW USMS 30 day tryout period:

USMS offers a 30-day tryout (guest membership) for prospective members who'd like to participate in a couple of workouts before joining a Masters program. Our insurance coverage for this 30-day tryout has changed, and we're introducing a new process and form for these prospective members who may visit your program.

All 30-day tryout participants are now COVERED by the USMS participant accident insurance during their tryout period. (In the past the tryout participants themselves were not covered.) Because they are now covered, USMS must collect and retain the 30-day tryout participants' biographical information and signed liability waivers.

We have posted a new form that is to be used for all 30-day tryout participants in your program. The form must be completed and signed by the participant on their first day of attendance. The coach should make a copy of that signed form for the club to retain, then mail the original signed form to the USMS national office (address is on the form). The form is two pages long, and both pages must be filled out and signed.


  • Tryout memberships are limited to one per lifetime.
  • Tryout memberships are limited to 30 consecutive days in length.
  • Tryout memberships are for workouts or clinics only.
  • Tryout memberships cannot be used to participate in swim meets or open water race events.
  • A Tryout membership provides secondary personal accident coverage to the participant while participating in the USMS activity.
