USA Athlete Membership
Join the SDMS USA Elite team by paying for a USA Swimming Athlete Membership. Being a USA member allows your swimmer to participate in USA meets for during the Winter 2017-18 season and Summer 2018 season. Doing so gives them the chance to swim against some of the best swimmers in Iowa.
Get registered in three easy steps:
1. Complete the registration form.
2. Scan and email it to us (or drop it off at practice) and we'll send payment and the form to USA Swimming.
3. Add the membership fee to your cart and check out when you're done shopping.
This fee is charged by USA Swimming and paid to the Iowa Chapter of USA Swimming (ISI) by SDMS. It does not include any USA meet fees, which are an extra expense. This membership fee helps USA Swimming cover administrative costs (ex. insurance) for youth swimming.
Because participating on the SDMS USA Elite team requires the additional expenses outlined above, we limit this option to swimmers who meet the time standards for Advanced/USA Elite practices. Currently, SDMS absorbs the PayPal fees associated with this item in order to offer this online payment option. If this policy changes, we'll update that here.
