2020 Golden Goggles is approaching fast,  November 19th, and the show will be rebroadcast on November 24 on the Olympic Channel. HOWEVER, you can still be a part of the action by bidding on SwimSwam’s unique item up for auction by the USA Swimming Foundation.

SwimSwam auction item:

SwimSwam Practice + Pancakes with Olympic Champion Mel Stewart and Coleman Hodges

Go Here To See The Details

I, Gold Medal Mel Stewart, and SwimSwam producer Coleman Hodges will fly to your swim team and produce a feature story to be distributed on in the Practice + Pancakes video series.

I’ll also swim with your team or individual, offer instruction, and/or play sharks and minnows.  During the your personal practice or team practice, we will do what you or your swim coach want.  At the end of the day, we hope to have fun and maybe even learn a few things.

This experience must be scheduled by June 30, 2021 and redeemed before Dec. 31, 2021 with blackout dates in place for June, July, and August of 2021. May be subject to COVID-19 restrictions.

The online auction opened yesterday and closes at noon Eastern on Wednesday, November 25th. All proceeds support the USA Swimming Foundation‘s mission to save lives and build champions, so you really can’t go wrong trying to snag some of the swag that covers an array of interests and budgets.

Many thanks,


P.S., Michael Phelps is obviously not a part of this, but I always like using this photo whenever I can. It’s one of my favorites. I literally drop it in at the bottom on random posts I make.  Backstory, he’s laughing at me because when I present him with any award (like this one at 2016 U.S. Olympic Trials)  I always ask for a kiss–which he never gives me… Anyway, Phelps is one of the reasons why I still love swimming, the swimmers, the parents, the coaches, etc.. Phelps, to me, still encapsulates the sport as a whole.
