SPMS Swimmer Registration
Online Registration and Mail-In Registration
Mail-In Registration is the lesser alternative to online registration. Print out the 2016 Individual Registration Form and follow the instructions.
Changing Club Affiliation and Transferring
Members can change clubs when they re-register for a new year. Just fill out the registration form with the new club name. There is no waiting period to change clubs at annual registration.
If a member wants to change clubs in the middle of the year, the member is not allowed to compete for any club for 60 days prior to the change. The member may compete as “Unattached” during this time. After the 60 days is up, the member can fill out an SPMS Club Transfer Form. The local transfer fee is $5.00.
Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I want to change clubs. What do I need to do?
A: You can change clubs when you re-register for a new year. Just fill out the registration form with your new club name. There is no waiting period if you change clubs at annual registration.
If you want to change clubs in the middle of the year, you are not allowed to compete for any club for 60 days prior to the change. You may compete as “Unattached” during this time. After the 60 days is up, you can fill out a SPMS Club Transfer Form. The local transfer fee is $5.00.
The way to determine whether you are local or outside of SPMS is to look at your current USMS registration number. If your registration number begins with "33", you are local. If your registration number begins with any number other than "33", then you are from outside SPMS.
If you are transferring from outside SPMS, the transfer fee from other areas is $10.00.
Q: I filled out my paper registration form at an SPMS event and it has been a long time and I have not received my card. Where is it?
A: Registering online will prevent this problem. Sometimes there are delays in the delivery of the forms to the registrar. Email registrar@SPMasterSwim.org and let us know where you filled out your registration and your name as it appears on the form.
Q: I mailed in my paper registration form in November and I still don't have my card. What's up?
A: Registering online will prevent this problem. We can't register swimmers for a club until the club has sent in their registration form. Very often we will have to hold registrations received in November and December until the club registers. Best bet: Ask your coach if your team has registered! Or email your name and club to registrar@SPMasterSwim.org.
