Leadership Opportunities

Leadership & Summit Events

The national efforts of USA Swimming and the Athlete Executive Committee (AEC) have provided leadership opportunities to those able to attend either We LEAD, She LEADS or the AEC’s Leadership Summit. However, these programs only reach a small portion of USA Swimming’s athlete membership. These LSC Summits will ensure that more athletes can benefit from our leadership and governance curriculum.

 

These local summits allow the LSC’s Athlete Committee to lead their peers and share their enthusiasm for being involved in USA Swimming.


Attendance criteria is set by the LSC, but these events are typically open to high school age swimmers. For more information on a specific event please contact your LSC.

LSC Leadership Summit Program

The aim of the LSC Leadership Summits are to provide leadership & governance training for high school-aged athletes. We hope that this training can be applied within athletes’ clubs, LSCs, and on the National level, but more importantly, we hope that these leadership exercises can carry over into all walks of the attendee’s life. 

 

The national efforts of USA Swimming and the Athlete Executive Committee (AEC) have provided leadership opportunities to those able to attend either We LEAD, She LEADS or the AEC’s Leadership Summit. However, these programs only reach a small portion of USA Swimming’s athlete membership. These LSC Summits will ensure that more athletes can benefit from our leadership and governance curriculum. 

 

Additionally, these local summits allow the LSC’s Athlete Committee to lead their peers and share their enthusiasm for being involved in USA Swimming.
