Indiana Swimming

WHAT IS INDIANA SWIMMING?

As one of 59 Local Swim Committees (LSC) of USA Swimming, Indiana Swimming is the administrative organization responsible for competitive swimming in Indiana. We are proud that we are the 4th largest LSC in the United States with over 115 swim clubs and 10,500 competitive swimmers here in the Hoosier state ranging from ages 3-30. Additionally, our coaches and officials enrollment consistently rank in the Top 3 in the country.

From Angola to Mt. Vernon and from Batesville to Portage , we have clubs from very small communities as well as numerous club options in the larger cities. In the greater Indianapolis area, we have 18 clubs alone. Our clubs offer more than just a competitive team; many also offer lesson programs.

Swimming is a life long activity!

Our Indiana Swimming clubs, not only compete against each other from the dual meet level to invitationals, but many have individuals who qualify to compete at state championships, zone championships, sectionals, the US Open, National Championships, Olympic Trials, and even the Olympics! We are beaming with pride to claim Lindsay Benko of Elkhart (2000 Sydney 2004 Athens ), Pat Calhoun of Seymour (2004 Sydney ) and Bryce Hunt of Newburgh (2004 Athens ), as “homegrown” Indiana Swimming alums! As conditions of membership, all of our clubs and coaches must adhere to the guidelines including safety certifications, that USA Swimming and Indiana Swimming set forth. Our clubs and coaches are also encouraged to explore opportunities to extend their education and knowledge by attending workshops/clinics that are offered locally, regionally and nationally throughout the year.

Without the athletes, there would be no coaches, and without the great officials, we’d have no meets. All of our 650+ officials are VOLUNTEERS, most being parents who put in countless hours to allow our swimmers the thrill and excitement of competition. Many continue to volunteer even when their swimmer retires! We are grateful for their love and dedication to our sport and state.

Indiana Swimming is governed by volunteers who serve on its Board of Directors. We are also fortunate enough to have and Executive Director and a Sport Development Director at a permanent office in downtown Indianapolis .Their expertise enhances the communication and education our members.

Our mission: Indiana Swimming provides progressive, innovative programs that inspire excellence.
