Olympic Champion to Head Legal Defense Network for College Swimming

Just the other day this news came out from the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA). Our own Phil Whitten made the announcement, which is great news for college swimming.

As many of you know, college swimming (men's AND women's) has been on the endangered species list for almost two decades now as athletic directors cut programs. We saw this most recently when ASU Men's Swimming was cut earlier this year. But creating Attorneys for the Promotion and Defense of Swimming (APDS) shows that collegiate swimming is not going to go away without a fight. What better fighter than ex-Olympian Steve Clark!

The fight to preserve collegiate swimming is going to be a long a hard-fought battle. During difficult times like these, athletic directors will look to cut "non-revenue" sports like swimming for a variety of reasons. But they will now have to content with competent, energized advocates who are going to ensure swimming remains on college campuses.
