Our team has once again reached the Silver Medal level in Club Excellence with USA Swimming. This program ranks teams on performances from Junior National level times on up for 18 & under swimmers not yet swimming in college. 2018 was our first year as a Silver medal team, while in 2017 and 2016 we first acquired our Bronze Medal ranking.
The scoring lists the top 20 clubs as Gold Medal clubs, the following 80 clubs as Silver Medal and then the next 100 clubs as Bronze Medal clubs. This does not take into account team size, when you see the list of the top Gold Medal Clubs these are swim clubs with team sizing between 1200 - 2500 swimmers on one team. They are 5 - 10 times larger than we are. If you multiplied our Power points by 5 we would be among the top 5 as well.
No Florida clubs made it into the Gold Medal circle. Among
Silver Medal clubs the following is the Florida standings;
#25 Gator Swim Club, #29 Bolles School, #60 Sarasota Sharks [9,330
pts], #64 Sarasota Tsunami [8,989 pts], #66 SPA, #83 TBAC.
