Reminder of USA Swimming's Scholastic All American Program

 

The end-of-season meets, particularly the Futures meets, will have Winter Junior (2017 time stds) qualifiers. Please remind coaches to have their athletes get their applications filed by August 15, 2018. The application process will shut off at 11:59 p.m. on August 15. If athletes think they might achieve the qualifying time, have them begin their application and upload their transcript. Times for those last meets will be loaded ASAP.

Again, a reminder to promote the Scholastic All America Program!

Note to General Chairs, Senior Chairs, LSC Webmasters.

The USA Swimming Scholastic All America application is now open on the USA Swimming website.

This year the honor is open to 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders who have achieved an individual 2017 Winter Junior qualifying time (SAA qualifying time) and have a 3.5 grade point average or higher. The addition of the 9thgraders to the program is new this year.

We are encouraging each LSC to promote the program by putting the links to the information and application on its website and keeping the program information available to the LSC athletes who qualify. We also ask you to remind your coaches to encourage their qualified athletes to apply.

The program is promoted throughout the summer to the coaches through the Coaching Connection from the Sport Development division, but often we hear from parents after the deadline that their athlete did not know about the program and that their coach never informed them of the possibility of this honor. Hopefully with a little more in-LSC promotion we can alleviate some of that issue.

The application process is open from June 1 (it is now open) through August 15, 2018. The applicant must be logged into the USA Swimming website as the athlete in order to access the application.
