Congratulations to the Clippers who achieved one of the biggest awards in the sport....Scholatic All-American. These swimmers are not just getting it done in the pool but they are also blazing it up in the classroom. We are very proud of our swimmers for reaching this prestigous award.
The Scholastic All-America Team is comprised of high school student-athletes, who have a grade point average of 3.50 or higher, and have achieved a specific time standard (faster than sectionals) in an individual event during the qualifying period. They must have completed 10th, 11th or 12th grade and be a USA Swimming member athlete. For further requirements, information and deadlines, please reference the applications form.
Three certificates will be awarded to each individual achieving Scholastic All-America status (one for the athlete, one for the school and one for the USA Swimming club). A special pin will be awarded to individuals earning a 4.00 grade point average. A special award will be issued to individuals named to the team three times.
This year’s application and time standards should be available in December. Please keep your eye out for the form. Note: These forms cannot be filled out by the Clippers or we would. Swimmers transcripts are needed at the end of the school year. We can only remind you.(We did have a couple that did not turn in the forms this past year!!!)
