Upcoming USMS Sanctioned Events


Support the Adult Learn to Swim Program

The USMS Swimming Saves Lives Foundation works to support the Adult Learn to Swim Programs around the country.  These programs enable adults who want to learn how to swim the opportunity to obtain a lifesaving skill regardless of their ability to pay.  The Inland NW Local Masters Swimming Organization supports the Swimming Saves Lives and asks you to consider the foundation in your gift giving during the season and when you register for 2018.


Kudos to Mike Hamm!

When you see Coach Mike Hamm from Kroc Masters on the pool deck, please congratulate him!  He has had a busy year.  Mike was recognized as the Inland NW LMSC Volunteer of the year at the LMSC Annual Meeting on 1 April.  He received notification of his Level 4 Coaches Certification (based on achievement) at Spring SCY Nationals in April.  Mike became USMS Long Course Meter Champion in 200 Meter Breaststroke for his age group at Summer Nationals in Minneapolis in August.  Finally, he was recognized for his coaching work with the Kerry O’Brien Grass Roots Coaching Award at the USMS Convention in September in Dallas, Texas.  Mike has worked hard in support of USMS and its goals and it’s great to see him recognized.
