A Note from CONN Masters

We would like to call to attention that some information presented in this website is for informational purposes only.  USMS and CONN Masters only endorse pool meets, open water swims, and practices that are USMS sanctioned and are following all USMS rules and regulations.  This website historically advertises and keeps information for events that are not USMS sanctioned.  The hope is that this information is a benefit to the members and will help grow Master’s swimming in our area.  USMS and CONN Masters, however, can not be responsible for the safety or quality of any unsanctioned events.  All USMS sanctioned meets and open water swims will have a sanction number which is often advertised in the meet information or can be found in the Calendar of Events section of USMS.org.  If you are still unsure, please feel free to contact a board member for clarifying information.  Currently, there are two Connecticut pool meets, The Nutmeg State Games and Connecticut LCM Championships that are sanctioned.  None of the open water swims are currently sanctioned.  Thank you from Conn Masters.
