The United States Synchronized Swimming Foundation mission is to fund the future of synchronized swimming! With that in mind, we are pleased to be able to be able to award grants to support, sustain and grow the sport of synchronized swimming. Last year, 43 teams received an average grant of $750.

This grant cycle is for programs that run between September 1, 2019, and July 31, 2020.  Grants awarded will be announced at the 2019 United States Aquatic Sports Convention, in St. Louis, Missouri, in September, 2019.
