We are one of 53 Local Masters Swim Committees (LMSC) of United States Masters Swimming (USMS). We exist to promote fitness and health in adults by offering and supporting Masters Swimming.

ADMS covers an area of Eastern Upstate New York including the Capital Region communities of Albany, Schenectady, Saratoga Springs and Troy; the great Adirondack Park region including Lake Placid, Saranac Lake and Tupper Lake; Northern New York cities of Plattsburgh, Potsdam, Watertown and Fort Drum; the Erie Canal and Mohawk River communities of Rome, Utica, Little Falls and Amsterdam; the Hudson River communities of Glens Falls, Hudson, Kingston, and Cooperstown, Norwich, Oneonta and the Catskill Park.

Adirondack Masters holds the following four sanctioned pool meets each year: fall meets at the Kingston/Ulster county YMCA and at Hartwick College in Oneonta; and spring meets at Skidmore College in Saratoga and Union College in Schenectady. We also offer annual clinics on Masters swim meet skills and open water swimming. Adirondack Masters partners with Greenleaf Racing and United  States Masters Swimming to conduct the Betsy Owens/Terry Laughlin open water swim races in Mirror Lake, Lake Placid each summer.
