757swim is committed to the positive and progressive development of all young swimmers.  We have established a scholarship program to assist swimmers and families who are unable to afford the full expense of a commitment to competitive swimming due to financial constraints.  We are pleased to be able to offer both full and partial financial assistance for the 757swim Membership Dues. Descriptions of the benefits and expectations of each scholarship are provided in detail below.  Please note that financial assistance granted will not include costs associated with meet fees, USA Swimming Registration and other charges.

The financial assistance program is designed to fit each family’s financial situation. Please understand the scholarship funds are limited. No applicant can be guaranteed to receive scholarship funds. Any award of scholarship funds will be based upon the application and the availability of funds on a first come first serve basis.
