Team Events

Every year, we offer a wide variety of events for our team. These events provide the support, encouragement, and coaching for new swimmers to expand to something they have not done yet and for veteran swimmers to improve in these events. We offer a variety of events from pool meets to open waters to practice swims.

Every year, USMS sponsors a One Hour Swim for distance. We have a special Saturday practice where anyone can participate in the event. We have two heats with the swimmers counting for each other. Plus, the team provides coffee, bagels, and fruit for all participants!

This is our team open water event for the year held at the beautiful Lake Del Valle in Livermore. Swimmers can participate in a 1K, 2.5K, 5K, or 10K swims. We always have a great group of swimmers for this event and is a great event for someone’s first open water swim.
