USMS (United States Masters Swimming) registration reminder
This is a reminder for CMA swimmers to join USMS (United States Masters Swimming). The website is: https://www.usms.org/join. The fee for 2022 is $60. The membership is required to satisfy insurance requirements for the team, but there are other benefits that include USMS sanctioned swim meets, a bi-monthly magazine, and discounts at sites like swimoutlet.com.
When you sign up for USMS, you can select the club to be affiliated with. If you plan to compete in swim meets, you could choose a different club besides Coronado Masters Association. That may give you flexibility to participate in relays or score points for a team since CMA does not regularly participate in meets as a team. Below is a screenshot of the USMS site to show the club options for San Diego - Imperial LMSC (Local Masters Swimming Committee):
