Maryland Swimming in dire straits, let’s help out !


A call to arms here on

There is an epidemic in swimming right now, and Maryland is latest in a long line of schools dropping swimming from their programs.

This is also a notice to all college coaches, your programs are NOT safe. In my humble opinion, you’re not just a coach anymore, it’s time to rally your alumni prior to this being done to you. While the efforts and outcries and the momentum building to save the program are great, view this as a precursor for your own programs and start your outreach program before this hits you.

In the meantime… remember, this is about the swimmers, the athletes, the kids.

Visit for more information. Help can be for instance to sign the petition, and to show up in force as spectators at their meets. See also Facebook
