Our members are boating families who contribute to their communities by promoting safe boating through education. We enjoy participating with our fellow members on the water and in the classroom. USPS has some 45,000 members organized into 450 squadrons across the country and in some US territories and Tokyo. USPS is the world's largest non-profit boating organization and has been honored by three US presidents for its civic contributions.
