Sunkist Achieves Level 4

We are proud to announce Sunkist has achieved Level 4, the highest level in USA Swimming's Club Recognition Program.   Big THANKS and CONGRATS to our coaches, board members, officials and volunteers for helping us become a great TEAM for all our athletes.  Super WHOOSH to our committed athletes whose achievements in the pool have helped Sunkist reach the stars in our LSC and in USA Swimming.  Onward and upward!

The Club Recognition Program offers our club members a working blueprint for developing strong, stable, financially sound and athletically productive organizations.

Designed by USA Swimming's Club Development Committee (comprised primarily of coaches), this voluntary program presents four levels of achievement across four component areas deemed critical to long-term club success. The program encourages clubs to establish organizational goals and to benchmark their progress toward those goals.

The ultimate objective of the program is to strengthen the club system in USA Swimming by guiding clubs through a development process that ultimately positions the program and its coaches to better serve athletes.

The Club Development Committee looked at many different factors that helped create "great" clubs. The committee grouped all of the factors into four major component areas:

  1. Business & Organizational Success
  2. Parent & Volunteer Development
  3. Coach Development & Education
  4. Athlete Development & Performance
