USA Swimming’s Scholastic All-America Team Deadline is August 1
Each year, USA Swimming recognizes its
members who excel both in the classroom and in the pool. The
Scholastic All-America Team is made up of high school
student-athletes who have a grade point average of 3.5 or higher
and who have achieved the required time standard in a single event.
To be eligible for this recognition, swimmers must have completed
10th, 11th or 12th grade and must be a USA Swimming member athlete.
Eligible times must be swum by June 30, 2011 and the application
received by August 1.
Last year, over 1,500 student-athletes made the grade, led by National Teamer and 400m IM National Champion, Dagny Knutson, who was not only perfect in the pool, but posted a 4.0 GPA as well.
**August 1, 2011 is the deadline for applications for S.A.A. for the 2010-11 year. Complete submission of the application, supporting proof of time or performance documents and a complete transcript from the athlete’s high school must be received by August 1st.
