The Squadron

What's a Squadron? Although USPS is a large organization, most of our 35,000 members belong to a local chapter, or "squadron". There are squadrons all over the country, Including Spokane. A squadron is a great venue for boating education, socializing with other boaters, learning together, and having a good time together both on the water and on land.
Learn more about boating than you could ever imagine. Squadrons offer classroom and on-the-water instruction for you and your family or boating partners. They provide many opportunities to learn via comprehensive, formal courses as well as just talking informally with other boaters about their experience, knowledge, and assistance.  Squadron members help each other learn, solve boating problems, and have fun.
Have fun through social activities with other squadron members. Many squadrons meet often for fun and adventure. It's a great way for you and other family members to enjoy boater camaraderie and friendship. Some members like the fun, others like the learning, and most like it all.
