USA Swimming Club Recognition Program

This program was designed over a two year period by USA Swimming's Club Development Committee, four levels of achievement across four component areas were deemed critical to long-term club success. The ultimate objective of the program is to strengthen the club system in USA Swimming by guiding clubs through a development process that ultimately positions the program and its coaches to better serve athletes.


The Club Development Committee looked at many different factors that helped create "great" clubs. The committee grouped all of the factors into four major component areas:


  1. Business & Organizational Success
  2. Parent & Volunteer Development
  3. Coach Development & Education
  4. Athlete Development & Performance
