12/12/2016Information on USA swimming

The purpose of this post is to let you know a little bit about USA Swimming.  USA Swimming is the National Governing Body for the sport of swimming in the US.  It promotes the culture of swimming by creating opportunities for swimmers and coaches of all backgrounds to participate and advance in the sport.  Our team participates in the Western Central Pennsylvania Swim League, and also participates in USA Swimming through our regional USA Swimming location, Allegheny Mountain Swimming.  Some of our swimmers participate in USA Swimming as well as our league meets.  I want to dispel the misconception that "USA Swimming is only for the fast swimmers".  This is simply NOT true.  USA Swimming splits their meets by ability, so it provides ALL swimmers the opportunity to compete with swimmers of like ability.  This actually promotes growth and additional competition, without discouraging swimmers.  There are time standards to achieve, and this is what allows swimmers to advance to the next level of swim meet within USA Swimming, so they always are swimming with swimmers that are competitive with them, but of like ability.  Why am I telling you all of this?  We are about to renew our current USA swimmer's memberships, which will be good through 12/31/17, and we would like you all to think about trying USA Swimming.  The membership is $72 per swimmer, per year, and the only other cost associated is the "splash fees" for meet entries.  Similar to our league champs meet, any USA Swimming meet has a $5 per entry fee per swimmer.  This helps cover the cost for the host teams, as well as for the certified officials that are at every USA meet.  Attending USA Swimming meets broadens your swimmer's horizon greatly, and opens their world to a lot more competition and like-ability swimmers that are in our region.  Additionally, it provides time standards to shoot for, which provides additional goal-setting for your swimmer.  If you are interested in trying USA Swimming in 2017, please let us know, and we will add your swimmer to our registration list.  Again, the yearly fee of $72 goes to USA Swimming, and covers registration through 12/31/17.  If your swimmer is a current USA Swimming swimmer, we will also need to know if you will be renewing their registration for 2017.  If you have any questions about USA Swimming, please feel free to ask your swimmer's coaches, or Laura Carlantonio or Robin Plank, as we are both parents of USA Swimming swimmers and beginner swimmers.  Please email Laura Carlantonio by DECEMBER 16TH if you are interested in registering your swimmer for USA Swimming.  Thank you!!
