Congrats to Maxime, Grant, Lauren and all.

Dear Club and HS Coaches, please tell your HS swimmers about this program early in the summer, so that they can apply
on time (if qualified).

Yeah it stinks to have “qualified” in all but getting the paperwork in. 🙁 This really hurts the swimmers who achieved the grades and can effect scholarship amounts too. It does a disservice to them.
