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, official. Forms and all supporting documents are due by March 1, 2018. 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 nominate. Please consolidate all the information into one submission, if possible. ....More

2018 YMCA SHORT COURSE NATIONALS

The YMCA of the USA is pleased to announce that the YMCA Short Course National Championship Meet will return to the Greensboro Aquatic Center (GAC) in Greensboro, NC, in 2018, 2019 and 2020.  The 2018 dates will be April 3-7, 2018.

VENUE SELECTION PROCESS
Following a thorough review process that included a committee of event volunteers and swim coaches, Y-USA selected the GAC based on the high quality of the facility, the experience level of the staff, the reasonable cost to families and teams, and ongoing support of the local community. The selection committee thoughtfully reviewed each bid and visited all of the proposed sites. The committee's recommendation was determined based on an extensive evaluation rubric, and coach feedback.

We look forward to working again with the qualified and committed staff of the GAC, the Greensboro CVB and our other local partners to provide a high quality meet experience so that our athletes can achieve their full potential.

AFFORDABLE LODGING
Y-USA is pleased to announce a larger selection of hotel options with lower hotel sleeping room rates for the 2018 YMCA National Short Course Championship.  With affordability in mind, we have partnered with the Greensboro Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Greensboro hotel community to lower overall travel costs for Championship participants.  This year you will see a larger variety of hotel options, many at lower rates than previous years. Your support of the preferred Greensboro hotels is appreciated. Please note the deadline to reserve the rooms at these reduced rates is March 17, 2018.  This is a full week later than past hotel reservation deadlines.

ADDITIONAL DISCOUNTS
In addition to the lower rates, when you book with these partner hotels, you'll receive coupons for additional discounts on local attractions and restaurants, generating even greater savings for you. These additional discounts are only offered to attendees who book the hotels listed on this site by the March 17 deadline.
