2016 USMS Check Off Challenge

Endorsed by the Southern Pacific Masters Swimming LMSC for USMS

 The 2016 "Think like a human, swim like a fish" Check off Challenge,

hosted this year by the Long Beach Grunions Masters, is designed to motivate swimmers

by encouraging them to swim 18 pool events and one open water swim during the calendar year. 

Whether swimming an event for the first time or striving to achieve a personal best, this is a fun challenge

for swimmers of all ability levels. The events maybe completed during practice or at swim meet competitions

in yards or meters at any time during 2016. Coaches can use this 19 event challenge to

motivate their swimmers to attend meets and practices inspiring swimmers to try new  

events. The Check Off Challenge is open to all USMS members. The cost is $30 + tax and includes a towel, cap,

Thank You certificate of completion, and packaging and shipping to the participant. The scoring is on the

honor system unless your coach decides to make it a formal team event.

Throughout the year mark or check off each event you swam on your towel and certificate.

You may ask your coach to sign your certificate upon completion of all 19 events for further recognition.

You will receive your package approximately two to three weeks after you sign up for this Check off Challenge.

The deadline for event registration is November 1, 2016.

Once again the Long Beach Grunions will be hosting the SPMS SCM Championships on December 4-6, 2015.  This year the venue has changed to the La Mirada Regional Aquatics Center.  The Grunions have a national reputation for putting on a great meet and this year will be no different.  We need all Grunions plus their family and friends to make this the best meet of the year.  That means signing up to swim and more importantly volunteering to help out at the meet.  Don Derbyshire will be coordinating volunteers, so send him an email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
