Following a format similar USA Swimming’s Golden Goggle Awards, we are hosting our Golden Peach Awards. This year there are two twists: they will be held virtually via social media posts/announcements AND we are doing awards for Age Group swimmers (ages 11-14) and then awards for Senior Swimmers (ages 15-18). This is to acknowledge and celebrate a wider variety of athletes while also helping save our families some money, and hopefully bringing something joyful to our athletes during a hard time. Awards will be shipped to the athletes club team.
