Every year, USA Swimming analyzes all of the races throughout the country. Each team’s ranking score is based on the FINA Points Table, a power point rating system that assigns point values to individual swimming performances based on the Gold, Silver or Bronze time standard.
“USA Swimming is fortunate to have tremendous athletes and coaches doing incredible work at the club level from coast to coast. The clubs who have earned Gold, Silver or Bronze honors represent the best of the best, and they are laying the groundwork for the future success of USA Swimming at the international level,” said USA Swimming Managing Director of Sport Development Joel Shinofield.
It was announced this week that LESD was among only 80 teams in the country to receive the second highest honor of Silver Medal for the 2019 Club Excellence. We are also the only local team and only team in our swimming district to achieve the Silver status. This is a great honor and directly correlates with all of the hard work from all our Silver Dolphins. A huge thank you to our hard working coaches, swimmers, and parents as YOU are the reason for this great honor.
