Club Recognition

 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.  Read more.
