USA Swimming: Activate vendor and enter activation vendor code
Admin Level - Superuser
SwimOffice allows you to use USA Swimming's Member Data Validation Service to verify member information and submit registrations. The first time you attempt either process, you will need to enable this service one time by giving permission to TeamUnify, as a third-party vendor, to exchange club registration data with SWIMS on behalf of your club. You may also deactivate TeamUnify as a vendor (revoke permission) if necessary.
For security purposes, the person performing either procedure must be a valid non-athlete member of USA Swimming and know the club portal password for the club. You will not be able to login for this with an account where you are registered as an athlete with USAS. Make sure that you have a user account on the USA Swimming website and that your account is linked to your USA Swimming membership record.
