Don’t Forget – You Must
Everyone needs to be a 2021 USMS member before they come to swim practice in January.
If you signed up for USMS after November 2020 then your membership is good for 2021. 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 known as Omaha Masters.
Sign Up for Practice Days
It is time to sign up for your practice time slot
for the first quarter of 2021 (January - February - March). Everyone gets two guaranteed practice days per week. You
have until January 2nd to keep your current practice days. After January 2nd you may change your practice days for two
other practice days. Please read all of the steps ☺ The link to Sign Up Genius has been sent via e-mail to every
Omaha Masters member via e-mail. If you didn't get it, please contact Todd.
First Step – Everyone must

in your name for the practice days you currently swim for ALL of the weeks in the whole quarter (not just the first month).
That is your guaranteed time to swim – twice per week! Again your choices are either Monday & Thursday or
Tuesday & Friday or Wednesday & Saturday. If you are continuing with your current practice days, you may do
this step now. If you are wanting to change, wait until January 3rd.
Step – Swimmers may swim additional practices per week where a slot is open. Please follow the rules
below when signing up for an extra practice.
Sign up for only ONE DAY at a time! Once you
have swum your extra practice then you may sign up for another practice. Multiple extra sign-ups are not permitted.
