The International Swimming Hall of Fame (ISHOF) museum opened its doors to the public in December of 1968 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. That same year, the Fédération Internationale de Natation (FINA) – the governing body for Olympic aquatic sports – designated the ISHOF museum as the “Official Repository for Aquatic History”.   In 2018, Sports Publications Inc, publisher of Swimming World Magazine and its multi-media platforms, merged with ISHOF to expand the museum’s reach and impact.  Today, ISHOF’s vision is to be the global focal point for recording and sharing the history of aquatics, promoting swimming as an essential life-skill, and developing educational programs and events related to water sports.  Show your support for the sport of swimming by becoming a member of ISHOF.

Our gift is in honor of Y club team swimmer Andy Moss and his cousin Masters Swimmer Marty Zoltick, who were lucky enough to swim a lap together while visiting the pool and Hall of Fame in Ft. Lauderdale, where Marty had also attended a camp as a teen.
Thank you also for featuring Andy’s NJ re-open pools petition on your website last May.
