Cultural Inclusion Resource Guides:

The Cultural Inclusion Resource Guides identify different cultural information, pillars of the sport and different programming that can be used to reach out to various multi-cultural groups.  These guides can be used to educate coaches and current swimmers about different cultural groups or be used as a way to educate new swimmers about the numerous cultures in swimming.
