Club Recognition Program

The Club Recognition Program is designed by USA Swimming “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.”  This is an entirely optional program and non-participation should not be considered a negative.  The program is really a template for one possible path to success for a club.  Level III is the highest rating.  More information on this program can be found here:

Club Excellence Program

This program rewards clubs that have elite 18 and under swimmers.  Each club earns points based on the FINA Points Table.  The top 20 clubs in the nation are designated Gold Level Ranking.  Clubs ranking between 21-100 are Silver Level Ranking and clubs ranking between 101-200 are Bronze Level Ranking.  Only the top 200 clubs in the nation get a ranking.  The rankings are recalculated every year and clubs can move up and down based on the current swimmers’ times.  More information on this program can be found here:
