ANNOUNCEMENTS

COME JOIN US

Come join us in Greensboro, NC, April 1-5 for the 2019 YMCA Short Course Nationals. The venue is the Greensboro Aquatics Center located at 1921 W Gate City Blvd, Greensboro, NC 27403.

With over 1,400 swimmers expected, the 2019 championship is not only an exposition of outstanding swimming competition but also a celebration of achievements by these young athletes. Join us and experience a world-class swimming venue, enjoy the antics of the "infamous" YMCA GateGuys, meet an Olympian at the Athlete Party, and dance and sing to the "Y.M.C.A." song. And let's not forget the Parade of Athletes. 

And if this is not enough, meet four college/university swim coaches who will provide insight into the college recruiting process.  Watch all-day swimming with morning prelims, afternoon time trials, and evening finals.  Purchase commemorative apparel.  Get an autograph from (and maybe even a picture with) an Olympian.

COACH OF THE YEAR NOMINATIONS (Click link)



YMCA coaches play a critical role in the cognitive, physical and social-emotional development of young athletes. By using swimming as a vehicle by which to promote achievement, relationships and a sense of belonging, coaches take a holistic approach to youth development. The lessons learned through swimming help an individual to thrive well beyond the pool.

The YMCA Swimming Coach of the Year Award is presented annually to the person who best exemplifies this approach to his or her role as a coach. The recipient intentionally strengthens the foundations of his or her community and actively promotes youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. He or she maintains high standards for the YMCA's core values of honesty, caring, respect and responsibility.

Anyone can nominate a swim coach for his award: parent, swimmer, coach, YMCA professional, and/or swim official. Forms and all supporting documents are due by March 1, 2019.

The recipient is selected by YMCA National Coaches Association Executive Committee and the YMCA of USA Swimming and Diving Council.

The recipient will be announced at the YMCA National Short Course Championship Meet. The recipient does not need to be present at the meet to be chosen to receive the award.

Please do not send multiple submissions by different individuals for the same coach if these individuals are all aware that the coach is being nominated. Please consolidate all the information into one submission, if possible. ....More
