The Club Recognition Program (CRP) has been a staple for USA Swimming member clubs. With the launch of the new SWIMS platform, this program will be redesigned and improved to better help our USA Swimming member clubs. Changes include a revamp of the standards and qualifications, logo design and ease in which membership can take advantage of this program.
To increase functionality of the CRP, USA Swimming member clubs will now be able to submit qualifications into SWIMS directly. This allows clubs to utilize previously uploaded information from SWIMS directly into their club portals. Starting November 1, 2022, new standards will be available for Levels 1 and 2, with Levels 3 and 4 emerging in conjunction with the 2024 Paris Olympic Games.
With the launch of SWIMS on September 1, old CRP standards will no longer be available. On November 1, new requirements will be enforced. This means there will be two months where clubs will not be able to submit CRP for approval. For those looking to have approval of current standards, the deadline to submit is August 31, 2022. Please be aware that those CRP certifications measured on current standards will only be valid through December 31, 2022.
