Help support local USMS clubs’ effort to restart Masters programs when safe and appropriate

The current public health crisis has had a significant impact on all of us. USMS clubs are no different.

To help address this crisis, U.S. Masters Swimming will match LMSC funding used to support clubs' efforts to resume operations as quickly as possible in their area. 

The USMS Swimming Saves Lives Foundation is ready to help. All proceeds received from SSLF's second annual online auction will be donated to the USMS COVID-19 Relief Program.

The auction will take place through Aug. 31, coinciding with the Toyota USMS Virtual Championships Powered by You can bid on fun items for all swim fans, including autographed caps (including two signed by Michael Phelps), bags, artwork from fellow Masters swimmers, and swag from USMS partners.

You can also donate to support this program.

Thank you for giving back to swimming -- the only sport that can save a life.
