Jonathan Cabel

USA Swimming announced 200 clubs that are recognized as Gold, Silver or Bronze medal clubs in the 2021-2022 Club Excellence Program. The St Charles Swim Team was recognized as a Silver Medal Club with 9,632 points.

Number one seated club, TAC Titans (TAC), posted 69,591 points to oust 7-year defending champion Nation's Capital Swim Club (NCAP) club by 9,215 points. 

The program recognizes USA Swimming’s highest-performing clubs in the development of athletes ages 18 years and younger on an annual basis. In a new addition to last year, eligible athlete performances include both pool and open water swims.

Eligible athlete pool performances were achieved between September 1, 2020 through August 31, 2021. Open water eligible performances were taken from the 5-kilmometer and 10-kilmometer at the 2021 USA Swimming Open Water National Championships as well as the 5 km and 7.5 km at the USA Swimming Open Water Junior National Championships.

In another addition from last year, Olympic achievements were highlighted. USA Swimming member clubs with a 2020 Olympic Games-qualifying athlete automatically qualified for Gold status (subject to meeting the minimum eligibility requirements).

Now in its 22nd year, this program recognizes USA Swimming member clubs for their commitment to athlete performance and excellence. The primary objectives of the program are to recognize and promote:

  • The development of strong, well-rounded age group and senior swimming programs that produce elite 18 & under athletes;
  • Resources to motivate and assist member clubs to achieve the highest athlete performance ideals;
  • Grant funding; and
  • The USA Swimming club development system as an integral part in achieving excellence in the sport.

USA Swimming member clubs earn points based off athlete performance scores. 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. All program requirements, including time standards, can be viewed HERE.
