2020 USA Swimming Club Excellence Results

December 14th, 2019

USA Swimming has announced the results of the 2020 Club Excellence program. From USA Swimming:

"Now in its 20th year, the Club Excellence program identifies clubs that execute strong, well-rounded programs to produce elite 18-and-under athletes. The top-20 clubs earn Gold level ranking and those rated 21-100 are designated as Silver honorees. The next 100 clubs are recognized at the Bronze level.

Each team’s ranking score is based on the FINA Points Table, a power point rating system that assigns point values to individual swimming performances based on the Gold, Silver or Bronze time standard. Starting with the 2018 Club Excellence rankings, Gold swims were multiplied by a factor of 2.0; points for Silver-level swims were increased by a factor of 1.5. Open water swimmers are eligible to score points based on their finishes at the 2019 USA Swimming Open Water National Championships and Junior National Championships."

Congratulations to the following Minnesota Swimming clubs that earned recognition for 2020 under the Club Excellence Program:


Silver Medal

•Aquajets Swim Team (18,446 pts)

•Riptide Swim Team (11,786 pts)
