Every year, the National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association (NISCA) has been awarding and recognizing outstanding high school coaches for their service to the sport of swimming. According to their website, “NISCA is a professional organization that supports High School coaches of all aquatic sports. They are dedicated to coaches education and athlete recognition through the All America programs.”
