As many of you know there have been two access points to the MSO registration database. One from the BLUE MSO website and the other from the RED MSC website.
Effectively immediately, MSO asks that you access the registration database ONLY from the Blue MSO site at http://ms.mastersswimmingontario.ca/. You no longer have registrar access to the red MSC site.
MSO’s registration for the 2017-2018 will begin in approximately one week. This usually starts on August 1st, however MSO requires some additional time to allow clubs with outstanding balances to remit their fees so that the 2016-2017 season can be wrapped up. Please do so promptly if this applies to your club.
The 2017-2018 season will offer two masters swimming programs in Ontario. We are given to believe that MSC will send out Swim Ontario’s message soon.
On June 21, 2017 MSO communicated its plan for the 2017-2018 season, i.e., to operate a fully insured, adult swim league independent of both MSC and SO. The emphasis will be on the fitness and social side of adult swimming and the opportunity to swim at MSO-sanctioned meets. As expected, the feedback from the survey that accompanied that letter was quite broad. Some individuals favoured remaining with MSO, some would move and still others intended to join both organizations, thus having access to everything that Master swimming has to offer. We sincerely hope that
swimmers and clubs choosing to affiliate with SO, also remain with MSO.
The 2017-2018 MSO fees remain at their current levels:
- $45 – Club affiliation; $10 per swimmer (club or unattached)
- MSO will continue its practice not to charge a registration fee for coaches.
