For the 2nd year in a row, LAC is one of the select group of only 20 Clubs to which USA Swimming awards a Gold Medal ranking in their Club Excellence Program. Each year, the Club Excellence program recognizes the USA Swimming’s highest-performing clubs in the development of athletes 18 years and younger.
“I’m so proud of our swimmers and coaches for reaching this great accomplishment,” says Head Coach, Jason Walter. “Our Team has set a gold medal standard for our staff, athletes and families in all we do. This has created a culture of excellence through hard work and teamwork. Even though we have multiple sites, our swimmers working together at practice and meets are what has propelled us to this level. This summer, we were led by an amazing senior class that has set the standard for all the classes to follow and hopefully continue this success into the future.”
In its 17th year, the Club Excellence program identifies clubs that execute strong, well-rounded programs to produce elite 18-and-under athletes. The top 20 clubs earn Gold level ranking and those rated 21-100 are designated as Silver honorees. The next 100 clubs are recognized at the Bronze level.
