The primary mission of the NCSA is to assist in the development of club swimming in the United States. The NCSA’s major project has been to develop a Junior National Swimming Championship for club swimming. Two such meets were held in 2002 at Long Beach, CA, in the spring and Boca Raton, FL, in the summer.
Presently, the NCSA has just over 140 members. In 2003, the NCSA is holding the Junior National Swimming Championships in Orlando, FL, during the spring, and in The Woodlands, TX, during the summer.
