*******New USMS Insurance Changes*******
A new workout insurance requirement has been put into effect by our insurance carrier. Effective
immediately, for a workout to be covered by USMS insurance, the person supervising the workout must be
a USMS member. In the past, a USA Swimming certified coach was allowed to supervise the workouts,
even if the USA Swimming certified coach was not a USMS member. This is no longer true; now if the
person supervising the workout is a USA Swimming certified coach, he or she must also be a USMS
Daily Workouts and Drills
Prepared by 7 different Top USMS Coaches
•Basic Training for New Swimmers
•Stroke and IM Workouts
•Open Water Workouts
•High Intensity Training (sprints)
•High Volume Workouts (mega yardage)
•Workouts for Expectant Mothers
