Greetings to all USA Swimming Stakeholders!
Earlier this year, USA Swimming President Jim Sheehan appointed a task force to conduct a study regarding the governance, function and operation of USA Swimming Zones and Local Swim Committees (LSCs). The task force has engaged an outside consulting firm, Design Group International (DGI), to be our partner in developing, conducting and implementing this study. The ultimate goal is to provide USA Swimming with recommendations that will help strengthen LSCs and Zones while maintaining an athlete centric focus.
The initial phase of the study will focus on gathering information and feedback from people who participate in every facet of USA Swimming. We want feedback from athletes, parents, coaches, officials, volunteers, administrators, and anyone else who plays a role in USA Swimming.
Following is a link to a short survey seeking feedback and comments regarding stakeholders’ experiences with USA Swimming Zones and Local Swim Committees (LSCs). In particular, we ask you to take time to complete the “comment sections” in the survey. Please share the survey link with others in your USA Swimming network as we want as much input as possible.
In order to insure that your feedback is included in the results, please complete the survey by the October 31, 2015 deadline. Thank you in advance for taking time to participate and share your views.
Chair, LSC / Zone Study Task Force
