This page includes all of the information and forms necessary to apply to USA Swimming as a NEW member club.
USA Swimming offers two classes of membership: (1) Group members, including clubs, seasonal clubs and organizations; and (2) Individual members, including athletes, coaches, officials, and non-athletes. Individual members register through their clubs, or, if not associated with a member club, directly through the local Registration Chair.
If you have any questions, please contact your Local Swim Committee (LSC) Registration chair or the Member Services Department at the National Headquarters. We recommend that you review all of the material on this web page before submitting your application.
In addition to completing the above referenced forms, clubs are required to submit the following items:

This person should be somebody other than the Head Coach and it is recommended that they are neither the club owner or spouse of one of these. All Safe Sport Coordinators must be current USA Swimming Non-Athlete Members in Good Standing.
After your LSC has submitted the application to USA Swimming, please allow up to 14 business days for the NHQ liaison to contact you and discuss next steps.
