Short Summary

Greetings.  Since the fall of 1992, I have been fortunate to serve as a collegiate swimming coach.  I currently have the honor of not only coaching the midshipmen of Annapolis but also teaching as a member of the Physical Education department.  

The lessons learned as a collegiate athlete carry for a lifetime and are values which our nation benefits from when collegiate student athletes enter into our working society.  Specifically, the virtues inherit to a swimmer or diver include serious grasp of long term commitment, a significant ability to work hard, humility in the form of excellence without arrogance and a commitment to a healthy lifestyle.

I humbly seek your support for a project I began in 2010 to help further promote and celebrate the extraordinary efforts in the sport of swimming and diving at the collegiate level.  This publication exists to promote and recruit more people to all of the real and long term benefits of the sport swimming and diving.

What We Need & What You Get

This year, I am looking to cover the costs of normal production and mailing.  In addition, I would like to be able to provide a small honorarium to each contributor to this publication.  In the future, I would also like to raise the funds to pay for an award to present to each featured athlete as well.  However, for now, the goal is to cover normal production costs.  In the event, that we do exceed the goal, then we will look to get a head start on either the honorariums and/awards for featured athletes.

What is in it for you!  In addition to knowing that each dollar is going to a unique cause to further promote the sport of swimming and diving, I have established the following rewards based on your level of support;

  1. $10.00.  Your name/team/organization will be recognized on the website for the next year.  From on online advertising perspective, this is a great deal.
  2. $20.00.  In addition to online recognition, you will receive a print copy of Profiles in Excellence: The 2013 14 College Swimming & Diving Honors.  This will be sent out as soon as they are ready by July.
  3. $30.00.  In addition to the previous rewards, you will receive print recognition either in the 2014 edition if submitted prior to going to print or in the 2015 edition.
  4. $40.00 or more.  In addition to previous rewards, you will receive a previous copy of Profiles in Excellence (your choice from the years 2010-2013 and while supplies last.

The Impact

“Just loved everything about college swimming.  So enjoyable - swimming is just the very best sport! Thank you for all that you do”

This is a recent unsolicited quote about the College Swimming and Diving Honors.  Please know that your support will allow this project to continue to grow into what I hope will be considered a unique, exciting and fun guidebook for all associated with college swimming and diving.  Furthermore, it is my hope and desire that this publication can indirectly or even directly strengthen the position of swimming and diving in the eyes of athletic and collegiate administrators.  I believe we have a sound product and now is the time to take it to the next level.

Other Ways You Can Help

Please share this information with your those in your swimming and diving network.  In addition to financial support, there are several ways to get more involved with this project.  If you are interested in the future of the College Swimming & Diving Honors, please send an email directly to me at robertsw@usna.edu  Thank you for your time and consideration.
