Welcome to Northern Sierra Masters!

Masters refers to anyone age 19 and above.  There is no minimum skill requirement other than being water safe. 

ALL participants must be current members of United States Masters Swimming (USMS).  USMS membership involves an annual (calendar year) fee.

Swim fees are $55 per calendar month and due the first of each month (just like a gym membership).  You also have the option to purchase a 5-swim punch card for $35.

-Parents with children on the swim team: please note that Masters is a separate program and all participants pay the $55/month swim fee.  The swim team "family max" does not apply to Masters.
