August 9, 2022 - Upcoming 2022-23 Registration Procedures

Membership Registration Changes Coming September 1, 2022

You may have recently received some communication from USA Swimming regarding changes in membership. If this news is completely new to you, this article will help catch you up to where we are currently.
Here's a list of key points:
  • Beginning September 1, 2022, for the 2022-2023 membership year, USA Swimming Membership Registration process will be available ONLINE. Currently we are not aware of a way to register anyone besides this new online process and we will not have new forms for 2023.  
  • The process requires clubs to provide new members a web link to create a Ping account and then register as a new member and pay online. New and Existing members will receive a new unique 14 character alphanumeric member code to replace their existing USA Swimming ID.
  • Pacific Swimming will stop processing 2022 memberships received after August 14, 2022, to help with transition.
  • Deck Pass will no longer be available beginning September 1, so we encourage each member to save a pdf copy of their DeckPass information so you have it readily available to reference during this switch to the new process.  

We will begin transitioning our Membership Forms area on our website to a Registration Information Area over the next few weeks, adding more information for clubs and members as we receive it. USA Swimming is sharing their communications with us about one day in advance of sending them out.
For more information, please view this video from USA Swimming to the clubs on the new procedures:
