Fees & Registration
There are two fees for swimming in the program. First, you must join (or already be registered with) US Masters Swimming in order to regularly swim with us. To register for US Masters Swimming with our team, register online with your credit or debit card. The US Masters registration fee is paid to "Potomac Valley LMSC".

Since Alexandria Masters does not charge team dues, members of other Masters teams or unattached US Masters members are welcome to swim with us.

Second, the fee to swim for the remainder of the summer season is $145 and paid to Alexandria Masters Swimming. This covers our coaching, pool rental, and special programs throughout the season. Swimmers wishing to average one workout a week pay $105. These fees are prorated to reflect the remaining time in the season.

An alternate long course session is offered on Sunday evenings in a 50-meter pool. The $120 fee for the summer is paid separately from the summer session. You are not required to sign up for the regular summer season to participate in this workout.

Try It
Interested swimmers are invited to swim with us free for a workout. Drop by one of the workouts. Print out the Guest Membership Form (no fee required) and bring it with you to the workout. Registered US Masters swimmers visiting from out-of-town are welcome - let us know you are coming so we can send you arrangements.

Try It For a Month
New swimmers (who have never previously been swimming with us) can sign up for only one month, complete the 30-Day Trail Form, and pay $80 for that month trial. If the swimming works out with your schedule and expectations after 30 days and you want to continue, join US Masters Swimming and pay Alexandria Masters for the remainder of the season at that time. The initial payment of $75 can be made with a check payable to Alexandria Masters Swimming and submitted to the coach at your first workout along with the Trial Form, or can be made online at our Paypal payment page.
