Olympian Swimming is proud to introduce our newest scholarship initiative the "Starting Blocks Award Program.”
This purpose of this scholarship is to provide financial support to a swimmer who would otherwise not have the means to swim competitively. We understand the financial commitment it takes to participate in advanced athletic programs and through “Starting Blocks” our goal is to support one candidate per year that can demonstrate a need for financial assistance. We want to be able to positively encourage and impact an up and coming swimmer who has demonstrated dedication, enthusiasm and talent in the learn to swim program, and a keen desire to swim competitively,. Welcome to Starting Blocks!!
