Without everyone in attendance for the zoom review, we recorded four videos to send out to all team management vendors.

The first video explains why USA Swimming is taking on this SWIMS 3.0/Online Member Registration initiative and provides some background into our thought process. The second video does three walkthroughs of the new Online Member Registration, explaining the dynamic logic within the application. The third video talks through the three main user flows for third party team management vendors. The fourth video talks through the API documentation.

USA Swimming

As a registered third-party vendor using USA Swimming OMS API’s, we are reaching out to inform you of changes to the USA Swimming registration process and the OMS API’s for the 2023 season.

Recently, USA Swimming has made several technology decisions that will impact processes from member and club registration to meet sanctioning and meet result uploads. We are finishing the process of re-building/re-architecting our membership and times database to accommodate the many improvements we are making to our SWIMS software applications . Most importantly, we have finished the development of a new centralized online member registration form that will be required for USA Swimming member registrations starting in September.

As a result, former OMS APIs will no longer be functional starting in the new membership year (September 1).

Since clubs will continue to utilize team management software for their roster management, we have updated API documentation that explains the new registration process: https://swims-api.vercel.app/. This documentation is close to final, but there may be minor adjustments to the current drafts. USA Swimming is working to improve its data quality and will provide the ability for a vendor to subscribe to various events that occur in the USA Swimming software (i.e. A member registered). We are also providing four different GET API’s for third-party vendors to call, ensuring team management roster information remains in sync with USA Swimming member information.

Thank you,

USA Swimming
