The temporary suspensions of USA Swimming coaches Kyler Pawlowski and Solomon Robinson are scheduled to end this summer. Pawlowski was under a 3-year suspension from September 5th, 2014 through September 5th, 2017; Robinson’s suspension runs from August 15th, 2014 through August 15th, 2017.
Both Pawlowski and Robinson were suspended for violating USA Swimming‘s Code of Conduct. In particular, Pawlowski violated sections 304.3.8 of the 2014-2015 Code of Conduct and 304.3.19 of the 2014-Present Code of Conduct and Robinson was found in violation of sections 304.3.14 of the 2012-2013 Code of Conduct and 304.3.19 of the 2014-present Code of Conduct.
Robinson’s ban sparked controversy and protest within the YMCA Alexandria Sea Dragons that he coached at. His 3-year suspension was a result of a failed police background check, which revealed that he had been arrested for grabbing his wife’s wrist during an argument in 2012 in Howard County, Maryland.
SwimSwam was unable to locate contact information for either coach for further comment.
