Membership Registration Changes Coming Sept 1, 2022


You may have recently received some communication from USA Swimming regarding changes in membership.  If this news is completely new to you, this will help catch you up to where we are currently. 


Here's a list of key points:


  • Beginning September 1, 2022, for the 2022-2023 membership year, USA Swimming Membership Registration process will be available ONLINE. Currently we are not aware of a way to register anyone besides this new online process and we will not have new forms for 2023.  

  • The process requires clubs to provide new members a web link to create a Ping account and then register as a new member and pay online. Existing members will also need to create an account and link their membership, but we believe they can delay renewing their membership until later in the year. New and Existing members will receive a new unique 14 character alphanumeric member code to replace their existing USASwimming ID.

  • Deck Pass will no longer be available beginning September 1, so we encourage each member to save a pdf copy of their DeckPass information so you have it readily available to reference during this switch to the new process.

  • Premium Athlete - $93- Coverage for the year including all swim meets
