2015 USMS MEMBERSHIP
Congratulations to all 2,500+ Metro members who helped to make 2014 a banner year for our community.
I am proud to report that we spent more money this year on our club’s and programs than ever before, yet we also SAVED more money this year through carefully planned budgeting. The Metro Board believes that the money belongs to you, our swimmers- to not one person or clubs personal gain.
This past year, Metro provided more subsidized swim meets, open water races and swim clinics than ever before, more coach certification opportunities, nutrition and fitness seminars than ever before and our own Fitness Chair Jim Wu won USMS Fitness recognition! We added synchro as an activity. Rewarded our members with giveaways at events with towels, t-shirts, flip-flops, top finishing medals, goodie bags at championship and national events, Top Ten USMS Ranking awards, records and high point awards. We provided more social events this year than ever before with our first ever Annual Award Beach BBQ, Mets game social and 2nd annual bar event. We provided scholarships to our members and gave back $6,000 proportionately divided to our clubs and decided in 2015 to give that money back to our members by absorbing the $2 increase from USMS. Metro will be giving back to our community for the first time with an event honoring one of our own and ALL proceeds in an ALL volunteer event on 11/23/2014. The product of all these new programs in Metro resulted in increased attendance at every event this year.
Metro is a community you can be proud of. 2015 USMS REGISTRATION STARTS TOMORROW. If you are not a Metro LMSC member, you will not be privy to many of the aforementioned activities or scholarships. I recommend to those of you who usually register as an independent, think about joining Metro's club- METR. That way, you have the option to join relays at all meets including championship.
Today, Metro is a recognized success story and with your continued support, prosperity and good health is an option for all!
