If YOU are looking for something to replace the USMS Check-Off Challenge, you may be interested in the 2018 VIRTUAL SWIMTATHLON LEAGUE.

In our third year, The Swimtathlon League is a year-long, virtual pentathlon where participants swim and submit times in stages. Five events are included in each pentathlon stage (Fly, Back, Breast, Free, and Individual Medley), and cumulative times are used for league standings and results.

New for 2018, we are adding a DISTANCE FREE stage to include the 500, 1000, and 1650.

All of this is on the honor system, but it's a fun way to stay motivated and challenge yourself to swim ALL 18 pool events...like the Check-Off Challenge.

It does not matter where (meet or practice) or how (yards or meters) you swim. For league standings, I convert all times to short course yards and send out quarterly AWARD CERTIFICATES.

Last year, 42 swimmers participated from all over the world, and I'm hoping for 50+ this year! Click here to see our 2017 LEAGUE MEMBERS.

The event information and entry are located at Club Assistant: 2018 VIRTUAL SWIMTATHLON LEAGUE. It's also listed on the USMS Calendar of Events.

There are no t-shirts, but $10 from each $25 entry will be contributed to the following great causes:

Since the Check-Off Challenge is no longer being offered, this may be a suitable replacement.
