For swimmers wishing to not affiliate with a club when registering with USMS, their club designation will consist of the letters UC followed by the LMSC number. The “club” name and abbreviation will be the same - for New Jersey, it is UC07. UC07 swimmers will continue to be ineligible for competing on relays or for a group of these swimmers to compete for team points, but may otherwise participate in all USMS activities, including practices and meets as an individual. This is the default "club" for swimmers who do not select a specific club affiliation. UC07 New Jersey

Explanation of the USMS ID Number: The USMS ID has two parts to it, separated by a hyphen.  The first part is 4 characters long and the second part is 5 characters long.  The format, LLYN-XXXXX is created as follows:  

LL = 2 digit LMSC number - NJ is 07 (click here for listing of LMSC numbers)
Y = last digit of registration year - 2007 registrations will all be 7
N = check digit (used by software to validate numbers)  

XXXXX = The swimmer's permanent ID.  This alpha-numeric ID remains unchanged for a swimmer from year to year.  All alpha characters are uppercase and the characters I (uppercase i) and O (uppercase o) are never used (the numbers 1 and 0 are used).  Of course, there is still confusion between a 5 and an S as well as the 2 and Z.
