January 1, 2019 Swim Challenge


Don’t Forget – You Must Remember USMS!

Everyone needs to be a 2019 USMS member before they come to swim practice in January.  If you signed up for USMS after November 2018 then your membership is good for 2019.  USMS membership is not a suggestion - this is a MUST.  USMS is the insurance arm of our program in which everyone in the pool and on the deck must have a USMS membership in order for each of us to be covered.  On the registration form, our club is Omaha Masters.


Evening Practices Changes!

Our evening practices will be moving to the College of St Mary starting January 2019 – Sunday, Monday and Wednesday evenings.  The Kroc Center will be expanding its aquatic programs in the evenings which cut into our current evening practice schedule.  More details will be coming, watch for them on our Facebook page.


Program Philosophy

Our program means many things to many people.  For some it's about weight loss or weight maintenance.  For others it's about stress relief.  For some it is their choice of fitness.  You may have the competitive itch: swimming or triathlons.  Just as goals are varied, so are individual personalities.  Please approach each other with open minds and appreciation for our differences.  We have a great program that tries to make room for anyone who wants to participate in a structured workout.


Program Fees

For the third year we will not be increasing any program fees.  The Omaha Masters administrative fee is $20 (this is separate from the USMS membership).  The coaching/rental program fee is $45 per month OR $110 per calendar quarter OR $420 for the year. Do not bring checks until after January 8.  Checks are to be made out to ‘Samland’ - both administrative fee and coaching fee can be on the same check.


New Year’s Day Swim Challenge

Although we do not have a practice on January 1, Erin is organizing a fundraiser for the Kroc Center and Omaha Food Bank for January 1.  Talk to Erin at practice for details or keep an eye on our Facebook page!
