Volunteers - the heart of our organization
Volunteers make it possible
USA Swimming is a non-profit organization made up of very dedicated volunteers.Without our thousands of volunteers across the nation, we would not be able to serve our 300,000 members.
Interested individuals - often swim parents - donate their time, energy and expertise at every level from the national Board of Directors to the decks of thousands of local swimming clubs across the nation.
Whether you are an experienced timer or a new parent just looking to get involved, this section will help you find your place as a supporter of "America's Swim Team."
New Pre-Employment Screening Program
At the 2010 U.S. Aquatic Sports Convention, the USA Swimming House of Delegates approved a series of rules regarding the Athlete Protection Program. One of these measures was Article 502.6.8 which requires clubs to comply with USA Swimming’s Pre-Employment Screening program.
The new requirement is effective August 31, 2011.
