Resources From USA Swimming
Zoom ( https://www.zoom.us/ ), an enterprise video conferencing with real-time messaging and content, has become one of the most prominent virtual tools during the Coronavirus crisis. For many members, the program has helped facilitate continued athlete engagement, virtual training and business continuity.
Beginning today, we have secured ‘Enterprise’ licenses, which provide the greatest number of features, for USA Swimming clubs for a 90-day period. Access requests should be sent to Paula D’Amico at [email protected] .
In addition to the one Enterprise license per club, we also encourage you to register for free Basic accounts as needed.
