Building Champions

Building CHampions

With the help of supporters and donors like you, the USA Swimming Foundation works with elite athletes to keep Team USA first to the wall and at the top of the leaderboards.

By Building Champions--in the pool and in life--we understand that swimming is so much more than a sport.

National Team Support

The United States is one of a few countries with a government that does not provide funding for its Olympic-level athletes, but with support from the USA Swimming Foundation, the 2016 USA Olympic Swimming Team’s performance is considered among the best in history.

As we dive into the 2020 Toyko Olympic Games, we want to keep Team USA at the top. Find out how you can help support our athletes here.




Swim-a-ThonTM is an in-pool fundraiser where participants raise money for their team while supporting the USA Swimming Foundation, by swimming lengths of the pool. It’s a swim-swim situation! 

Find out how you can earn money for your team and win great prizes here!
