The Somerset Valley YMCA swim team has earned 2015 Silver Medal status from USA Swimming's Club Excellence program! SVY is the only NJ YMCA program to achieve Silver Medal status, and one of only three NJ Swimming programs overall.
2015 marks the second consecutive year SVY has earned Silver Medal status. The team also earned Bronze Medal status in 2013 and 2010. USA Swimming selects 100 clubs nationwide for Gold or Silver status, placing SVY in the top 100 clubs in the nation again this year.
The Club Excellence Program is a voluntary program that identifies and recognizes USA Swimming clubs for their commitment to performance excellence. This program strives to meet the following objectives:
- Promote the development of strong, well-rounded age group and senior swimming programs that produce elite 18 & under athletes
- Provide recognition and resources to motivate and assist member clubs to strive for the highest ideals of athlete performance.
