The USMS Coaches Committee exists to educate and support the coaches of masters teams. We have conference calls monthly to help us exchange ideas and work toward our goals. One of which is to improve communication with all our coaches across the U.S. By sharing the minutes of our meetings, we can give you some insights into the projects we are working on and goals we are working toward.
