Masters Swim Teams in North Carolina

Many of the swim teams of the Local Masters Swim Committee (LMSC) in North Carolina are organized as one large club, North Carolina Masters Swimming Club (NCMS). Many of these teams are small,and since only a small number of swimmers go to out of state and national meets. It was decided in the 90's to form one large club from within the state so swimmers going to out of state meets could compete together as one club from North Carolina This would allow North Carolina swimmers to form relay teams and participate as NCMS swimmers. The individual teams in the North Carolina Masters Swimming club are called workout groups (sometimes referred to as chapters).

Swimmers can also form their own independent clubs that are not part of NC Maaters Swimming Club. However, teams that chose to be a member of the large club North Carolina Masters Swimming is still run independently as a team in North Carolina, and participate at swim meets held in North Carolina as an independent teams. When North Carolina Meets are held, the individual workout groups and independent clubs score points to see which team wins the meet. Swimmers compete in Relays both with their own workout group, or club, and/or those who belong to the large NCMS Club can swim for the North Carolina Masters Swimming club in relays. The NCMS club does not score points against any other chapter or club.

Swimmers can register unattached, with an independent club, or with NCMS club and not specify a workout group, but unattached swimmers may not participate in relays or score points for a team. Alternatively, and recommended, a swimmer wants to swim out of state with the North Carolina Masters Swimming club, but not belong to a team, then they can just register with North Carolina Masters Swimming club and no workout group (NCMS, no workout group)

When you click on the reference, you will be taken to a website where each team's information is displayed, or you can click on Join and be taken to USMS's secure online registration site and register for that team.
