Board decisions regarding awards for NC swimmers and coaches.
In the November Board Meeting, your Board of Directors discussed the "Swimmer of the Year" award. This has been a much-discussed award over the years. The decision has been made that starting 2014 this award can only be given to an individual once per age group.
The Swimmer of the Year award is given in the categories of the traditional pool events and the long distance / open water events.
The board decided to add two new awards in 2014: the Coach of the Year award and the Most Improved Swimmer award.
A set of criteria will be written for the new "Coach of the Year" award.
The "Most Improved Swimmer Award" will be decided by the Board of Directors through written nominations of individuals by coaches.
More information will follow soon.
