USA Swimming encourages people with disabilities to participate in the sport of swimming and facilitates their inclusion in USA Swimming programs through education and collaboration.
We seek to involve people with disabilities in existing competitions and programs for all swimmers, rather than provide unique disability-only opportunities. Swimmers who prefer disability-only programs should consult the links menu in the “Get Involved” section below.

A number of national clinics for coaches are being conducted by U.S. Paralympics Swimming during 2017. The focus of these clinics is education and support for coaches who either have or would like to coach athletes with impairments.
The scheduled for these clinics can be found on the website at: http://www.teamusa.org/US-Paralympics/Sports/Swimming/Events. Please pass this information on to any coaches who may have an interest.
