We have a lot of exciting programs launching this Fall to share with you! Many of you are aware of the basic information about these programs, but this email is intended to give you a deeper look into the programs and provide tools to help promote the programs to your swimmers and parents.
Membership Cards
As you may have heard, USA Swimming will be distributing a new athlete membership packet that will include a membership card, sticker and mini-poster. The goal of the new athlete membership packet is to provide the athlete with a physical membership card and also drive awareness of our digital card, connect members to our Partners and increase USA Swimming’s brand awareness.
Deck Pass
We continue to improve Deck Pass for the swim community and frequently get asked, “how can we promote this to our parents and athletes.”   Here are a few ways to promote Deck pass to your club:
·         What is Deck Pass?
·         What’s New on Deck Pass
Find the Golden Patch Promotion
In coordination with the membership card, USA Swimming has created the “Find the Golden Patch” promotion for all registered athlete members. Athletes will have the opportunity to win free products from USA Swimming Partners through the Deck Pass app. Athletes are able to win items such as an AT&T Samsung Galaxy Tab3, TYR AP12 Speed Suit, Marriott gift card and other great prizes! Here are the basics on the Golden Patch promotion:
·         Athlete members must download the Deck Pass app and create an account.
·         Once logged into the account, using the Deck Pass QR code scanner, athletes must scan for the patch located on their physical membership card. 
·         If an athlete receives the Golden Patch, they should email USA Swimming immediately.
The membership cards should be starting to hit your athletes’ mailboxes.  We ask that you encourage your athletes to scan for the Golden Patches! Talking, tweeting, email blasts etc. would be greatly appreciated!
