How Do I Join?

To be a part of the Sharks Masters, you must join U.S. Masters Swimming. You can register quickly and easily on the USMS membership page. Be sure to designate SYSM as your club. NOTE: If you do not live in Sarasota, please contact Coach David Miner prior to registering for SYSM.

Cost is $47 per year, which includes many benefits, including supplemental insurance, SWIMMER magazine, STREAMLINES eNewlsetters. Also, make sure you print a hard copy of your membership card; you will need it when registering for meets or traveling to other pools.

YMCA membership is not required. Monthly club fee for non-Y members is $67 per month ($50 per month for Y members). There is a $7 drop-in fee for visiting USMS members from other clubs and SYSM members who are not paying the monthly club fee and practice less than once per week.

We encourage you to come and try us out before signing up. Email Coach David Miner or call him at 941-545-9709 and let him know when you’ll be joining us. If you’re new to Masters swimming, we recommend that you read the article series, “Masters Swimming 101,” which is published on the USMS website.
