Armada Comes So Close in Club Excellence Rankings

In its 17th year, USA Swimming's 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.  The Armada finished 22 in the rankings for 2017 - just missing a spot in the prestigious Gold category. There were 1,174 clubs that applied for the Club Excellence program this year.

“Earning a Gold, Silver or Bronze ranking is a reflection of the hard work and time invested by athletes and coaches and has become a highly coveted honor for our teams. To see new clubs earn a spot on this list is exciting and a testament that the future of club swimming continues to be bright,” said Pat Hogan, USA Swimming’s Club Development Managing Director. “On behalf of USA Swimming, I want to congratulate each of the 200 clubs that have earned a ranking in the 2018 program.”
