Delaware Valley Local Masters Swim Committee


Recent Updates and Notes:

This year's US Aquatic Sports Convention will be held 9/30 - 10/4 in Kansas City, Missouri. We are looking for one more delegate to attend this year. Delegates are expected to attend all House of Delegate meetings as well as workshops and other meetings. The registration fee and travel expenses are reimbursed. If interested, please indicate why you are interested, any service to masters swimming (locally and/or nationally), number of years you have been a USMS member and any other information that may be applicable. Below there is a link with some information about the convention.

USMS plans on holding Level 1 and 2 USMS Coaches Certification Courses in Philadelphia on Saturday 8/29. Stipends MAY be available for DV-LMSC coaches who attend but the amount is to be determined. A link with more info is below.

There also is the possibility of USMS holding a 3 hour swim clinic on Sunday 8/30 for $40 per swimmer. This could be a pool or an open water clinic.

We would like to gage interest in both the coaching certification course and the swim clinic. The newly certified coaches would be expected to help at the clinic if we opt to hold one.

Welcome to the Delaware Valley Masters Swim Committee. We are your organization if you are looking to compete, improve your form, or just enjoy the sport in the Delaware Valley region. We currently have over 600 members in our chapter. You are sure to find some kindred spirits in our organization.

We are a sub chapter of our parent organization, United States Masters Swimming (USMS). USMS is a national organization of more than 50,000 members that provides organized workouts, competitions, clinics and workshops for adults aged 18 and over. There are many organized swim teams and places to swim here in our area you may want look into.

USMS is organized into 53 geographic territories throughout the United States.  These territories are governed by Local Masters Swimming Committees (LMSC’s).  The Delaware Valley LMSC boundaries encompass areas that include eastern PA, southern New Jersey, Delaware and part of eastern Maryland.

LMSC’s are grouped together into 8 zones across the country. The Colonies Zone stretches from Maine to Virginia and includes ten LMSC's. From north to south, the LMSC's are New England, Adirondack, Niagara, Connecticut, Metropolitan, New Jersey, Delaware Valley, Maryland, Potomac Valley, and Virginia.
