Help Preserve College Swimming for When YOU (or your child) Goes to College!
It’s no secret that college swimming has been “under the gun” due to college budget cuts in recent decades.
We want to let NCAA Division I Presidents/Chancellors and Athletic Directors know that there is a large, vibrant, energetic and committed swimming community in the USA that appreciates the fact that THEIR University has kept swimming alive and well at their institutions.
AND let them know that we want them to continue that support, and that our Children will consider attending Universities that allow them to continue their swimming excellence during their college years.
During the time period Nov. 15, 2010 through Dec. 30, 2010, won’t you take a few minutes and write a letter or send an email to the President and Athletic Director of the institution of your choice. (or more than one if you’d like!) and say THANK YOU for their support of swimming and let them know that the tuition dollars of you or your child will flow towards the institutions that keep swimming opportunities alive.
You can find the email and mailing addresses of EVERY NCAA Division I institution in the country on the American Swimming Coaches Association website at https://www.swimmingcoach.org/ad_addresses.htm
Letters from young swimmers are particularly appreciated! How about your swimmer (s) sits down today and does something to preserve their own future opportunities?
All the Best, John Leonard, American Swimming Coaches Association.
