In this USMS-sanctioned event you may swim whatever stroke(s) you wish, at whatever pace you wish, continuously or with breaks. All participants must be USMS members and adhere to the event rules. To read about the long history of the 1-Hour Swim, click here.
By reserving a spot in our local heats via the signup form below you agree to honor your committment (barring emergency) and consent to NEM Swim Club coaches officially registering you in the 2022 USMS 1-Hour Virtual Championship by submitting your splits and yardage on your behalf.
The $32 swimmer fee includes the $10 USMS event registration fee, a $2 SignUpGenius processing fee, and a $20 nonrefundable donation that covers pool costs and supports the Roger Williams University varsity swim team, in exchange for which the college swimmers will record splits for us during our Hour Swim heats. You can donate more onsite at the swim via cash or check. If you prefer, you may bring your own split-taker.
The NEM coaches reserve the right to adjust swimmers' heat and lane assignments if/as needed.
Sunday, January 30th @ Roger Williams University (48 swimmers = 2 per lane x 8 lanes x 3 heats)
Check-in and warm-up open at 7:40am. Heats start at 8:30, 9:50 & 11:10. As usual, we will hold the post-swim party at Aidan's Pub,
where we'll announce the winner of the total yardage betting pool. During check-in at the pool, each
participant will have the option to contribute $5 cash to the pot and
guess the aggregate yardage of all three RWU heats.
Can't join us on January 30th? If there is a enough demand, we may organize other heats on a different day. Otherwise, register yourself for event, ask a friend to count for you during January at your pool, and submit your results online via the official event website. Every yard counts toward NEM Swim Club's total!
