Coaches Grants/Reimbursement

Coaches Continuing Education Grant

Potomac Valley Swimming has established a continuing education program for its coach members. Up to six $500 educational grants will be awarded each fiscal year. The Short Course Zone Team Head Coach and Assistant Head Coach will automatically be awarded a grant. The four additional $500.00 educational grants will be available for active, certified PVS coaches (who have applied) for the upcoming fiscal year. The eligibility criteria for these grants is established by the Competition Committee with the approval of the Board of Directors. The eligibility criteria are distributed annually with the application form.

Those selected may choose any USA Swimming sponsored coaches' program for which they are eligible. Other educational opportunities may be approved by the Board of Directors on a case by case basis. Those selected (except the Zone Team coaches) are ineligible the following year. Coaches accepting a grant must submit a report to the Competition Committee and an evaluation to the Board of Directors.
