USA Swimming

USA Swimming is the National Governing Body of Swimming in the United States.  There are many USA Swimming registered clubs in Southwest Ohio and most of the YMCA’s we compete against are members of USA Swimming.  You can find more information about this organization at www.usaswimming.org.  There are many advantages to being a member of USA Swimming, including the opportunity to participate in a wider variety of swim meets.  There is also a nearly endless supply of resources available to USA Swimming members.  These range from nutrition advice to insights on how top level athletes have progressed from age group swimmers to National Team members.  All swimmers who train with the Elite group will be required to join USA Swimming when they register.  All other swimmers have the option of joining if they choose.  The fee for this is $75 (already built in to the Elite fees).  There will be certain meets we attend this fall/winter that are only open to USA Swimming registered swimmers.  There will still be plenty of meets for those swimmers who choose not to join at this time. If you have any questions or concerns about USA Swimming or whether you should join, please contact Coach Tom at tom.cuticchia@lakotaymca.com
