Pacific Masters Swimming Event Schedule Development for 2023

Pacific Masters Swimming would like to extend the opportunity for your organization to consider hosting and request dates for pool meet and open water events in the 2023 calendar year.  The sooner events can be set and published on the schedule the more time swimmers have to plan for attending your event.  

Host bids for the Pacific Masters LCM and SCM championship meets have not been finalized, however, we are ready to accept requests for pool and open water events to our schedule for the 2023 calendar year.  Pacific Masters championship events have the highest priority, during the following time periods:

•     April 14 - 16, 2023 is set for SCY champs in Morgan Hill CA (USMS spring nationals are April 27 – 30, in Irvine CA)

•     July 7 – 23, 2023 are "reserved" for LCM champs (USMS summer nationals are August 2 – 6, in Sarasota FL)

Help Pacific Masters Grow Win a Pacific Masters Towel!

Swimming is one of the best exercises we can do for ourselves. Since word of mouth is the best advertising, tell everyone you know about Pacific Masters Swimming.

If you bring a friend to join your club, and Pacific Masters, you can enter a monthly drawing for a Sports 20 in. X 36 in. microfiber towel. The towel will have the Pacific Masters logo on it and will tell other swimmers that you helped grow Masters Swimming.

Just get a new member, or bring back a swimmer who has not been a PacMasters swimmer in the past four years (2018-2021), to join Pacific Masters. Then enter their name, your name, and the club name at New Member Towel Drawing.

There will be a drawing for towels on the last day of the month, from April through October. If you bring in a new swimmer from March 1st, 2022 to the end of October, 2022, you are eligible for the drawing.
