Champions Club

Champions Club _2(Medium)The USA Swimming Foundation's Champions Club is comprised of our most distinguished and loyal supporters.

Members of the Champions Club provide crucial financial leadership to the swimming community, and receive exclusive benefits reserved for our inner circle of friends.

 

By making a gift to the Champions Club, you help strengthen the sport of swimming from grassroots to gold medals―from learn-to-swim programs to international competition. 

 

Funds raised by the USA Swimming Foundation support: 

  • The USA Swimming Foundation’s Make a Splash initiative is a national child-focused water safety campaign, which aims to provide the opportunity for every child in America to learn to swim. Through Make a Splash, the USA Swimming Foundation partners with learn-to-swim providers and water safety advocates across the country to provide swimming lessons and educate children and their families on the importance of learning how to swim. The USA Swimming Foundation has invested millions of dollars to provide grants to qualified Local Partner learn-to-swim programs, to spread national awareness, and to bring together strategic partners to end drowning.  To date, more than 2 million children have received the lifesaving gift of swim lessons through the USA Swimming Foundation Make a Splash Local Partner network, comprised of more than 600 qualified lesson providers across the nation. To learn more, visit www.usaswimmingfoundation/makeasplash.org.  
  • The U.S. National Team, who won 31 medals at the Olympic Games in London-making the USA the #1 swimming nation in the world for more that 50 years! In 2014, the coaches and athletes of the National Team received more than $600,000 in financial support from the USA Swimming Foundation.
  • USA Swimming's programs and services. For the first time in history, USA Swimming's membership has exceeded 400,000 members. Despite this exponential growth, their commitment to serving those members has not wavered. Over the past five years, USA Swimming has consulted with more than 2,000 clubs; provided Club Leadership & Business Management School training to more than 1,700 clubs; and served nearly 6,000 coaches through regional coaching clinics.
  • Other initiatives as they arise, including critical operating expenses. 

Please join the USA Swimming Foundation’s Champions Club today, and help build a legacy for the sport we all love!
