HISTORY OF YMCA COMPETITIVE SWIMMING & DIVING
If one has ever been interested in the history of YMCA Competitive Swimming and Diving, you will have your chance to explore in Greensboro.YMCA of the USA is honored to have long-time YMCA swim Historian Paul Atkinson and his wife Jan with us as part of championship week. Paul is making himself available to meet and share historical information from our past. Paul began his career with the YMCA in Dayton, Ohio in 1959. From 1960 through 1994 Paul attended our YMCA National Short Course Championship Meets as well and some Long Course and Masters Championships. Paul retired from a distinguished career with the Y in 1990. Competitive Aquatics have always been his first love--teaching, coaching and officiating.

He will be located at the Coliseum Complex near the Athlete's Village to make people more aware of our swimming heritage as well as find individuals who may have local YMCA swimming information and or materials that they might share.
