Club Recognition

USA Swimming offers a variety of programs to member clubs. These programs have been created to enhance, encourage, recognize and reward member clubs. All programs are administered and funded by USA Swimming.

2020 USA Swimming Club Excellence Program

USA Swimming's Club Excellence Program identifies clubs that execute strong, well-rounded programs to produce elite 18-and-under athletes. The top 20 clubs earn Gold level ranking and those rated 21-100 are designated as Silver honorees. The next 100 clubs are recognized at the Bronze level. E Each team’s ranking score is based on the FINA Points Table, a power point rating system that assigns point values to individual swimming performances based on the Gold, Silver or Bronze time standard. Starting with the 2018 Club Excellence rankings, Gold swims were multiplied by a factor of 2.0; points for Silver-level swims were increased by a factor of 1.5. Open water swimmers are eligible to score points based on their finishes at the 2019 USA Swimming Open Water National Championships and Junior National Championships. In addition to recognizing high-performing teams, the program provides grant funding that enables clubs to expand and enhance the services already provided to athletes. A total of $400,000 in grants will be distributed to the 100 Gold- and Silver-level clubs.

USA Swimming Club Recognition Program

 The Club Recognition Program offers our club members a working blueprint for developing strong, stable, financially sound and athletically productive organizations. Designed by USA Swimming's Club Development Committee (comprised primarily of coaches), this voluntary program presents four levels of achievement across four component areas deemed critical to long-term club success. The program encourages clubs to establish organizational goals and to benchmark their progress toward those goals.
