United States Masters Swimming (USMS) exists to promote fitness and health in adults by offering and supporting Masters Swimming programs. USMS was founded in 1970 and has over 40,000 members. It supports and encourages competition, but more than half of its members are fitness swimmers who do not compete. USMS is one of five organizations which comprise "United States Aquatic Sports", which is a member of FINA, the international governing body for aquatic sports.
USMS is organized in 53 geographic areas of the United States which are managed by the Local Masters Swim Committee (LMSC). The South Carolina LMSC is responsible for the State of South Carolina.
