Congratulations to the Inglewood Swimmer Scholars for completing their first ever high school swim season. Thanks to the dedication and hard work of the team, Coach Orion Young and Program Director Patrick Bridges, the team did well in its first dual meet season and everyone dropped a lot of time. Above, some of the team heads off to the championship meet!
Congratulations to this year's Swimmer Scholar Seniors! We had a great crop of acceptances this year, adding more SUNY campuses (Cortland, New Paltz, and Potsdam) to our list of colleges our Scholars will attend.
See the full list here!
Congratulations to all participants and thank you to all our donors! The first Great Relay was a huge success. A special thank you to Jim Bolster, Head Coach of Columbia Men's Swim Team, for hosting us at Columbia's pool! We had 8 teams compete and had a lot of fun. We are looking forward to our next Great Relay - host one in your town!
We are excited to announce the swimming of the first Great Relay!

We were very excited to have our Prospect Heights and Washington Heights programs come together for the first time to visit Columbia University. Swimmer Scholars from both programs started out by watching Columbia defeat Yale in swimming, toured campus, and then finished it up with pizza! Teens from all over the world, including Morocco, Senegal, Jamaica, and the Dominican Republic, came together and shared their love of swimming and talked about their plans for college.
This year we launched our first girls-only PSAL swim team at the George Washington Educational Campus.
This means that the girls get to compete against other girls in NYC, not boys like they have in the past. We were also very excited for one of our Swimmer Scholars, a budding fashion designer, to design the girls' swim suits - with a great Trident in the middle!
