USA Swimming

Brief Description of Your Organization's Activities:: 

VISION:To inspire our members and others to achieve excellence in the sport of swimming and in life.

MISSION: USA Swimming is the National Governing Body for the sport of swimming.  We administer competitive swimming in accordance with the Olympic & Amateur Sports Act.  We provide programs and services for our members, supporters, affiliates and the interested public.  We value these members of the swimming community, and the staff and volunteers who serve them.  We are committed to excellence and the improvement of our sport.

BUILD - Build the Base: We seek to expand our membership in order to share our sport with as many
people as possible.  We are especially committed to sharing the values of our sport with young people who may discover that swimming is an activity they can enjoy for their entire life.

PROMOTE - Promote the Sport: We want swimming to receive as much publicity as possible because we
believe that the more people learn about our sport the more inclined they will be to join the ranks of our membership and supporters.  We are proud of our sport and we seek to celebrate it whenever possible.

ACHIEVE - Achieve Sustained Competitive Success: We seek to continue a tradition of competitive excellence. When our elite-level athletes are successful in fulfilling their Olympic dreams, our society benefits from the inspiration these athletes provide.
