This page includes all of the information and forms necessary to apply to USA Swimming as a NEW member club.
USA Swimming offers two classes of membership: (1) Group members, including clubs, seasonal clubs and organizations; and (2) Individual members, including athletes, coaches, officials, and non-athletes. Individual members register through their clubs, or, if not associated with a member club, directly through the local Registration Chair.
If you have any questions, please contact your Local Swim Committee (LSC) Registration chair or the Member Services Department at the National Headquarters. We recommend that you review all of the material on this web page before submitting your application.
Seasonal Clubs: Seasonal clubs are an LSC option. Although completion of all requirements is recommended, seasonal clubs are not subject to all of the new club stipulations. Seasonal clubs are only required to complete the LSC application form, pay the registration fee, and have a member coach who has completed all USA Swimming requirements. Please check with your LSC for more information.
