USA Swimming Outreach Membership:
The goal of USA Swimming's Outreach Committee is to provide opportunities in swimming to the underrepresented and economically disadvantaged youth in the United States. Several years ago, USA Swimming began to address the problem of the underserved (and in many cases unserved) population of underrepresented and economically disadvantaged youth in the sport of swimming at all levels. The lack of underrepresented swimmers, especially at the elite levels, was distinctly noticeable. USA Swimming is committed to providing outreach membership for families in need. Outreach membership plays a vital role in bridging the gap. USA Swimming outreach membership offers qualified individuals the opportunity to become a USA Swimming year-round athlete member at a reduced fee. Each Local Swimming Committee determines how they will qualify athletes for outreach membership. They may use but are not limited to national guidelines based on Federal Food Stamps, Free School Lunch and/or Federal Poverty Guidelines.

Diversity & Inclusion Mission Statement:
To assist USA Swimming in creating a culture of inclusion and opportunity for people of diverse backgrounds, including, but not limited to, race, age, income, ethnicity, religion, gender and sexual orientation.
