Arizona, coach, DeMont, Rick DeMont-DO8T1041-With a staggering 47 Olympians and 36 gold medals associated with its program, Arizona Swimming & Diving is no stranger to success. In the last quarter-century, the men’s and women’s teams have earned a combined 31 top-five finishes in the NCAA Championships, including a clean sweep in 2008 with both team titles. In addition, the Wildcats include an incredible 367 All-Americans and 67 individual NCAA titles.

The University of Arizona’s performance extends far beyond the pool. Academic achievement and community service have proven to be a core value, as the program remains home to more NCAA “Women of the Year” recipients than any other athletic department nationwide. Currently under the leadership of Head Swimming & Diving Coach Rick DeMont, both the men’s and women’s teams look forward to continuing to make history in 2016.

“It is with a glad heart that I announce TYR as the official supplier of swimwear, parkas, and swim caps for the University of Arizona,” began DeMont. “Their products are outstanding, and we are proud to wear and race in their gear.”
