New Registration Year


Our new registration year started 1 Novmeber. Swimmers can register on line at You can register any time 24/7. Currently we have  over 4,656 swimmers registered for 2012 (about 43% of last years membership) - thanks to everyone who has reregistered.
If your club has reregistered you can register with your club. If your club has not registered for 2012, you cannot register with your club, until the club registers.


Jon Steiner Memorial Mile


The  Jon Steiner Memorial Postal has begun. Money from this swim will go toward lung cancer research (the insidious disease that killed Jon). You can swim the mile anytime now to the end of February.
10 K Clinic


 Pacific Masters is sponsoring a clinic for those who are thinking about competing in a 10K Open Water Event. The dryland workshop will include how to approach trianing, feeding during the race, race day preparation and recovering after the race.
