How to Join SBMS

Due to the current health pandemic, SBMS is operating under a limited pool schedule and is currently restricted to one swimmer per lane. SBMS is not offering Free Trials or Drop-In at this time. Please email if you have questions. We urge you to check back with us for updates.


Step 1 USMS Registration
All swimmers MUST hold a current U.S. Masters Swimming membership before they can join SBMS. Our LMSC is Southern Pacific Masters Swimming and our Club code is SBM - Santa Barbara Masters.

Step 2 SBMS Membership
To swim with SBMS and sign up for workouts you must join SBMS. During registration, you will be prompted to enter your current USMS number. Upon joining the team all members will pay a $25 SBMS Membership activation fee. This is a one-time membership fee, it is not an annual or recurring fee.

Step 3 Swim Workout Payment Option
The next step is to select a payment option. You can purchase individual swim passes or select one of the monthly options, see the fee structure below. Please also review the SBMS Billing Policy before signing up, Billing

Step 4 Sign Up for Workouts
Once you have paid for your SBMS Membership and have purchased swim passes or selected monthly options, now you can sign up for workouts using the App SignUpGenius. You must be a current paying SBMS member BEFORE you sign up for a lane on SignUpGenius. If you are NOT a current paying member, your lane assignment will be deleted. Swimmers will not be allowed onto the pool deck without having completed all 4 steps as outlined here.
