In the past few weeks, I have had the opportunity to communicate with many of our USA Swimming and LSC Leaders in reference to better understand key information being shared by our governing body. As well many LSCs are sharing their action plans on how they are assisting clubs through the challenges we are facing due to COVID-19. 

The common theme expressed by all is that we must support our sport as a “Swimming Community” and interact in sharing resources in our efforts to combat these challenges and how it has impacted our sport.

Below you will find updates along with vital information that hopefully will assist you and your clubs.  Please let me know if you have questions and contact me with more ideas that may be helpful.
