    Regional vs Local Club Categories (2013)

    Beginning in 2009, club scoring awards at Nationals have been divided into two separate categories: Regional and Local. A formal description of the two club categories is below (104.5.6B[1] & [2] from page 35 of the 2013 USMS Rule Book):

    (1)Regional - For competition at national championship meets, a Regional Club consists of a club made up of those swimmers who represent a club at nationals, but at competitions within their LMSC, they compete for an entity or subgroup (such as a workout group) that is different than the one they compete with at nationals.

    (2) Local - For competition at national championship meets, a Local Club consists of a club that does not qualify as a Regional Club.

    Based on these definitions, the following scoring categories will be in place for 2013 Nationals:

    Regional Clubs:
    AKMS - Alaska Masters Swim Club
    ARIZ - Arizona Masters Swim Club Inc
    CMS - Colorado Masters Swimming
    FACT - Florida Aquatic Combined Team
    GAJA - Georgia Masters
    HMS - Hydropower Masters Swim Club
    IAMA - Iowa Masters
    IM - Illinois Masters
    MICH - Michigan Masters
    MM - Montana Masters
    NCMS - North Carolina Masters Swimming
    NEM - New England Masters Swim Club
    NIAG - Niagara District Masters
    NMMS - New Mexico Masters
    OREG - Oregon Masters
    PSM - Puget Sound Masters
    SKY - Swim Kentucky Masters
    SMS - Southern Masters Swimmers
    SWOM - Southwest Ohio Masters
    UTAH - Swim Utah
    WMAC - Wisconsin Masters Aquatic Club
    WMSC - Wyoming Masters Swimming Club

    Local Clubs: all other registered USMS clubs.

    According to the USMS Rule Book the Championship Committee shall publish this list no later than February 15 of each year. Please note clubs may contest their designation or the designation of another club by filing an appeal with the chair of the Championship Committee (Jeff Roddin, championship@usms.org) at least 45 days prior to the national championship meet (those deadlines would be March 25 for Indianapolis and June 23 for Mission Viejo).

    USMS Championship Committee Chair
