USMS Registration

For liability purposes, anyone competing for OR WORKING OUT WITH the Skagit Valley Masters Swimmers will need to be registered with United States Masters Swimming. Register online at United States Masters Swimming. Your registration will be valid through the end of 2017.


How do I fill out a meet entry form?

  • For any PNA sanctioned meet (which will pretty much be any meet in western WA): "Team" or "Workout Group" = SVMS and "Club" = PSM
  • For all other meets (in Canada, Oregon, Nationals, etc) "Club", "Association", "Team" ALL = PSM

All of 2017 - Check Off Challenge

Not in the greatest shape? Don't like swim meets? Challenge yourself to the Check-off Challenge! Complete every competitive event (can be done in our pool during practice) plus an open water swim. You have all year to do it! More info and registration link!


January-February 2017 - One Hour Postal

Hate sprints? Not a big fan of competition? Distance swimmer? The One Hour Postal swim is for you! How far can you swim in an hour? Check the link for more details and let Chris or Shannon know if you'd like to do it so we can reserve lane space and find you a timer/split taker. Must be completed between January 1st and February 28th. More info and registration link!


January 28, 2017 - Victoria!

This is a LCM (Long Course METRES --50 metre pool) meet in the nicest facility we'll swim in this year. Bring the family! The aquatic center has a 50 metre competition pool, another 50 metre warm water pool (shallow end for lessons, deep end for platform diving), a kiddie play area, a wave pool, and two hot tubs! Click on the link for all the details. This is a LONG COURSE METRES event! You MUST convert your times when entering! See the link at the bottom of this page. More info and registration link!


February 2017 - 1650 Postal

Kind of like the One Hour except instead of swimming for distance you swim for time. How fast can you swim a 1650? 50% of the proceeds from your entry fee gets donated to lung cancer research. Again, let Chris or Shannon know if you'd like to swim this. More details here: More info and registration link!


February 4, 2017 - Anacortes SCM

This is an SCM (Short Course METERS) meet practically in our own backyard. Great first meet for those on the fence about competition. Come help SVMS beat Anacortes on their home turf ;-) The powers that be moved this to SATURDAY, so you don't have the excuse of missing the football game any more! Click on the link for all the details. This is a SHORT COURSE METERS event! You MUST convert your times when entering! See the link at the bottom of this page. More info and registration link!


February 19, 2017 - Lake Washington SCY - Kirkland

This is another relatively close meet that is also great for beginning competitors. And it's a SCY (Short Course YARDS) meet so there's no pesky conversions to worry about. More info and registration link!


March 5, 2017 - Port Angeles SCY

Best done as an overnight on the peninsula, but it can be done in one long day (ferry rides take time). Great for a little weekend getaway. (Short Course YARDS - no conversion necessary!). More info and registration link!


To convert your times from SCY to SCM or LCM, here is a conversion tool: SwimSwam converter.
