What Will This Cost?

  1. USMS: All Auburn Masters swimmers must join the national organization, United States Masters Swimming. USMS membership provides individuals and the club with insurance coverage, subscription to USMS Swimmer (the official magazine of USMS), the ability when traveling to swim with other USMS teams across the country, and is required to compete in USMS swim meets. Membership is $51 on a calendar year basis. You can register with USMS as a member of the Auburn Masters Swimmers (AMS) team by going to this link.

  2. Aquatics Center: Masters swimmers need to become members of the Aquatics Center to use the pool. Students automatically are considered members. AU employees pay $40 every three months or $120 for the year, alumni pay $50 every three months or $150 per year, and other community members pay $70 every three months or $250 per year. Family rates for non-students also are available; enquire at the pool (844-4182). As an alternative to quarterly payments, the option exists to pay $2.00 each time you swim. Please bring exact change and pay the lifeguard at the desk before you enter the locker rooms. The lifeguard will give you a release of liability form to sign.

  3. Club Dues: All team members pay club dues. Club dues cover the expenses associated with hiring of coaches and renting pool space at the Aquatics Center. Students pay $67.50 per semester and all others pay $135 per semester ($15 & $30 per month, collected at the start of the semester). Fall semester runs from August 15 to December 31st. Spring semester runs from January 1st to May 15th. Summer term (May 16 to August 14th) dues are based on the same monthly rate.
