Aquazot Swim Club ranked third in the nation!
Aquazot Swim Club has earned a third place position in the 2015 USA Swimming Club Excellence program, recognizing the organization’s highest-performing clubs in the development of athletes 18 years and younger.
Aquazot’s talented and hard working group of young athletes tallied 36,574 points to move up from a ninth place finish last year, to third place this year. With the top 2 teams both being from the east coast, Aquazot finished as the top team in the western half of the United States. Congratulations to all the families, athletes, and coaches who are a part of the Aquazot Swim Club for this outstanding accomplishment!
In its 14th year, the Club Excellence program identifies clubs that execute strong, well-rounded age group and senior swimming programs to produce elite 18-and-under athletes. The top 20 clubs earn Gold level and those ranked 21-100 are designated as Silver. The next 100 clubs are recognized as Bronze.
“Club Excellence is one of our most popular programs and earning a Gold, Silver or Bronze ranking is highly coveted by coaches and clubs,” said Pat Hogan, USA Swimming’s Club Development Managing Director. “Our clubs nationwide demonstrate incredible commitment to improve the performance of their athletes.”
