Join COMA and Come Swim With Us!
Please come visit us at any of our practices and get to know us! Once you've tried us out please consider becoming a member. The cost is only $20 per year.
COMA membership dollars support our own local activities such as: the Cascade Lakes Swim Series & Festival, Foster Lake Cable Swims, COMA hosted swim meets, training equipment purchases, discounts on swim clinics, various social events, maintenance of our COMA website, and community support of learn to swim programs and special olympics at our local pools. COMA membership does not pay for coaches salaries as coaches are hired by their respective facilities. COMA does support coaches through professional education opportunities.

COMA is a member team of the Oregon Club, one of several registered clubs with Oregon Masters Swimming (OMS). Oregon Masters Swimming is one of the 53 Local Masters Swim Committes (LMSC) affiliated with United States Masters Swimming (USMS), the national governing body for adult swimming in the United States. In order to compete in sanctioned events (swim meets, open water events or epostal swims), you must be a member of USMS. COMA membership fee is NOT included in the OMS/USMS membership fee.
Join USMS via the on-line registration on the Oregon Masters Swimming website. Click on the link under the Oregon Workout Groups: Central Oregon Masters Swimming. This will fill in the CLUB (Oregon) and Workout Group (COMA) properly. Registering with COMA as your Workout Group allows you to score at association championship events with team scoring.
