United States Winter Swimming Association

The USWSA will not hold a Winter Swimming Championship in 2019. We are searching for a suitable venue where we can provide a topnotch winter swimming experience. We look forward to swimming with you again soon!

The United States Winter Swimming Association formed as non-profit organization in 2014 with the mission to promote the sport of winter swimming in the United States. On February 21, 2015 we sanctioned the first Winter Swimming Championship in North America. The event was held in Newport, Vermont on beautiful Lake Memphremagog. On January 30, 2016 we will held our National Championship in New York, New York drawing in more swimmers across the country and around the world. On Feb 10, 2018 our 4th National Championship in Coney Island will be held.

Winter swimming competitions are extremely popular in Russia, the Czech Republic, Poland, Sweden, Finland, Latvia, Estonia, and China . Even events in Great Britain and South African draw hundreds of swimmers. Over 1,000 swimmers competed in the 2014 Winter Swimming World Championships which were held in Lapland, Finland.

The USWSA is a non-profit corporation with the mission to develop and promote the sport of winter swimming in the United States (as defined by “swimming in waters of 41°F/5°C or below”) by establishing safety guidelines and helping foster competition and fellowship among winter swimmers in the US and abroad.
