USMS & MMSC Memberships

USMS membership is required ($60 Annual). To register, visit usms.org.

Everyone participating in Maui Masters swim practices and events must be registered with USMS. This provides the insurance that is a condition of using the County pools. New swimmers will be asked to show proof of membership. All current swimmers must renew their membership by January 1 of each year.

USMS membership provides:
* the insurance that allows us to use the pool
* Swimmer Magazine (the magazine of Masters swimmers)

MMSC swim practice schedule change

Beginning today and until further notice, I'm moving the Monday & Wednesday evening workouts from Pukalani to Sakamoto Pools 6-7:30pm. For the time being (until the board decides or the pool closes to refurbish the filter), Tues/Thurs/Sat ice-skating will remain at Pukalani Pool.
