As a part of USA Swimming’s ongoing efforts to provide leadership and skill-building resources that support and strengthen swim clubs and each of you as leaders, we are pleased to offer you a complimentary annual membership with BoardSource. This yearly membership normally would cost you $99/year. This membership is recommended for both the Head Coach and all Board of Director members. If you are a member of your Local Swim Committee Board of Directors you also should strongly consider activating your free membership.

BoardSource membership is a year-round educational resource that helps to connect, engage, inform, guide, counsel, and support a community of thousands of nonprofit leaders from across the country.
As a leader within USA Swimming, you are now an important part of BoardSource’s membership community, which will make it easy for you to access the latest news, resources, and best-practices in nonprofit board leadership, as well as practical experience and suggestions from other members of BoardSource’s membership community.
