Club Breakdown

The heart and soul of  masters swimming are the local clubs where swimmers work out together, socialize and support each other in reaching their goals. Listed below are the registered clubs in the Arkansas LMSC, and their total number of members, as of this writing:

Pine Bluff hosts Adult Learn to Swim Clinic

We celebrate the opening of a new pool in our state!  The Pine Bluff Aquatic Center opened in 2019, and USMS is hosting an Adult Learn to Swim Clinic at the pool on February 29th.  If you, or someone you know, wishes to get certified in ALTS, we offer scholarships to cover the registration fee on a first come, first served basis.  All the info about this clinic can be found here.
