Bloomington Normal Swim Club is proud to offer the Rachel A. Dean Financial Assistance Program. The application is available below to download and complete. Our hope is that Rachel’s spirit and enthusiasm for swimming will endure throughout BNSC’s culture. 

On September 14th, 2017, BNSC Coach Rachel Dean lost her life in a tragic car accident. Having never met a stranger, Rachel inspired everyone she met, especially those in the swim community.  Rachel believed in and personified a greater good that transcended the swimming pool.  In addition to coaching and teaching, Rachel managed a public pool on Bloomington's west side and was discouraged that the majority of her patrons would never have the opportunity to receive the benefits swimming on a team had given her. It was her dream to make this possible.

In her honor, the Rachel A. Dean Financial Assistance Program makes it possible for underprivileged athletes to participate in the competitive sport of swimming.
