Two easy steps to join the Montgomery Ancient Mariners (ANCM) Swim Team:

1.  Register with USMS (United States Masters Swimming)
through the secure online registration system. Click on "Join" in the menu at the top of the page. USMS registration is required for liability coverage and allows swimmers to participate in USMS sanctioned meets. If you are already signed up with USMS, you may transfer your current USMS membership to the ANCMs. Registration includes the ANCM annual dues, which covers the cost of equipment and supplies (team caps, pace clocks, kickboards, video library), coach training, communication (newsletters and website) , and annual events (summer picnic, winter holiday party). Click here for a listing of all swimmers currently registered with ANCMs.

Register with the Montgomery County Recreation Program through their on-line registration. Click on "Activities" at the top of the page, then click on "Aquatics." Go to the left hand side, hover over "Secondary Category," and check "Masters." Click in the box "In progress/future." Select the number of days per week that you want to swim. You may swim at any of our pools and the Germantown Indoor Swim Center. Choose 1 day, 2 days, 3 days, 4 days, or 5 days per week. Please note that the new name for the MAC is KSAC [Eunice Kennedy Shriver and Sargent Shriver Aquatic Center]. You may also register for drop in swims for 1, 2, 4, or 8 workouts only (click here for more details)**.
