Letter from USA swimming regarding 2020 Olympics

 
 
Dear Cynthia,
 
We hope this note finds you and yours healthy and safe. Our athletes, coaches, alumni, donors, and volunteers make up the family that is USA Swimming and we are grateful for your support. 
 
These are challenging times across the world, but our focus and commitment remain firmly on our mission, our athletes, and our programs.
 
As you may have heard, the International Olympic Committee and the Tokyo 2020 Organizing Committee announced earlier today that the Olympic Games in Tokyo will be postponed until 2021. USA Swimming fully supports this difficult decision, and is working to adjust our preparations and schedule a calendar of events that properly readies our team for 2021.
 
At the same time, we are continuing to support the USA Swimming community; our staff has been working with coaches, local swim committees, and team leaders to provide support in myriad ways as pools close, and local events are cancelled or postponed. Many of our National Team athletes and coaches have lost access to their training facilities and income streams, so we are finding ways to support their preparation for future competitions. And, we are proud to share that on March 20, 60 swim lesson providers learned they are the recipients of USA Swimming Foundation grant funding this year. This funding furthers our efforts to support our swim lesson providers with offering opportunities to children across the nation to become safer in, on, and around the water.
 
Details are limited at this time, but as an integral part of our family, please know that we will share updates with you as decisions are made, and as we continue to come together to support each other in these uncertain times. For the most up-to-date information from USA Swimming please visit www.usaswimming.org/coronavirus and follow us on twitter at: twitter.com/USASwimming.
 
Thank you for your continued support of the USA Swimming community.
 
Sincerely,
 
 
Tim Hinchey III
President and CEO
