special training session, have a team party or just have bagels &
juice available for visitors. PMS will give you promotional
materials like banners and posters to publicize the event. Coaches
and club members agree to be at the pool during the Open House hours
to showcase your Masters program. The goal of the Open House is to
advertise that your Masters team is there, hopefully having fun,
throughout the winter months.

arranging a mentor coach for the day, for example). We'll publish a
list of participating clubs on the PMS website at
