Pirates Win National Award

 Each year the 2,800 United States Swimming teams compete for gold, silver and bronze awards in the Club Excellence Program. The program recognizes USA Swimming clubs for their commitment to excellence in performance. The top 15 teams in the United States receive the Gold Award.  The next 85 receive the Silver Award. The next 100 receive the Bronze Award.  This year the Marin Pirates Swim Team received the Silver Award.  It is our highest ranking in the history of this 10 year old program.  In addition to recognizing the top club teams, the program provides grant funding for resources that enable clubs to expand and/or enhance the services they already provide to athletes. A total of $320,000 in grant dollars will be distributed to the 100 Gold and Silver-level clubs.

Thanks to Pirate coach Jill Ruppenstein for spearheading the effort in the lengthy application process for this award.
