2017-18 Registration Information

New Members:

Welcome to the  2017-18 season (Sept 1, 2017 through August 31, 2018)!  OMSC is on break from Sept 2nd to Sept 17th with no swim sessions available.  Our first week back, we are hosting two OPEN HOUSES for new members on Sept 18th and September 20th both from 6:30 to 7:20 pm – in the poolside classroom on deck at the H2O.  We will give a quick overview of our club and our swim program – you will hear from a couple of our members and a coach.  You can ask all the questions you want!  All guests are invited to try out a swim with us (at no cost) right after the meeting (swim from 7:30 to 8:30 pm…or just come watch!)  There is no need to pre-register for the Open Houses.  Simply come to the H2O and tell the Front Desk you want to go to the OMSC Open House and they will direct you.  Remember to bring your swim suit, goggles and a cap if you want to try us out.

OMSC has open registration and new members are welcome any time.  We offer a great variety of swim sessions to suit any taste, including a combination of short course (25m) and long course (50m) sessions; morning and evening sessions; week-day and week-end sessions – please see our Swim Schedule or check out our Calendar.  Generally, swimmers settle into a pattern, which allows our coaches to provide continuity and consistency in the training program for individual members. Members are also welcome to participate in the monthly Friday evening stroke improvement clinics provided through-out the season. Each clinic focuses on a different stroke.

How much does it cost?  Because of our partnership with the YMCA at H2O, members of OMSC are also full members of the H2O facility. This offers complete access to the H2O facility – the recreational pool, the fitness facility and all the other amazing Y programs. Please see the H2O membership information page on the H2O’s website for details on the monthly cost.  Additional costs are the annual OMSC membership fee ($75) which includes the MSABC membership*.  This annual membership is a one-time fee due when you join the YMCA / OMSC program.
