*** UPDATED ***

A slight change was made to the by-laws and the summary due to the fact that SI Swimming does not have a coach committee, but a separate entity known as the Coach Association.  The documents linked for the by-laws and summary have been updated.

*** UPDATED ***

We will be voting to approve these proposed versions of the by-laws and the policy&procedure documents at the House of Delegates meeting at the end of November.  Below are the links to each of the documents as well as a document that summarizes the changes.  If you have any questions or concerns with the changes, please send email to

San Diego Imperial Swimming has achieved LEAP Level 3, which is the highest level available!  LEAP is USA Swimming’s LSC Evaluation and Achievement Program to aid LSC in reaching higher levels in governance.  This is quite an achievement that only 7 out of the 59 LSC’s across the country have achieved.   Thanks to the wonderful volunteers who have made this all possible!
