MAGAZINE FOR MEMBERS
There has been misleading and confusing information regarding the
magazine. As a benefit of membership, you will continue to receive a
magazine, it just won't be SWIM Magazine. The leadership of USMS,
after considered investigation, discussion, and evaluation, has
decided to publish its own magazine which will be called USMS Swimmer
and will be sent to each member on a bi-monthly basis, just as you
receive currently. The PMS Newsletter will continue to be inserted
into the magazine for your convenience. USMS is confident that you
will enjoy this new publication and use it to enhance your swimming
knowledge and awareness.
If you are a non-athlete member of US Swimming (to be a coach,
official or marshal), it is time to reregister with them.
