"Hi, I swam with Danille Strader Bordi growing up, and did many meets at PDR with Jim Ellis. I also was recently speaking with Thaddeus Gamory who told me about Sunday's convention. Hoping that I can make it."

Swimming for the Soul

Posted on April 19, 2012 at 7:14pm 0 Comments

From the WashingtonPost.com, by Lynn Sherr:

To call swimming a religious experience might sound like sacrilege.

But for many of us, every time we slip into a bikini, or plunge into the ocean, or pound out our laps, we’re actually taking part in a spiritual rite. Swimming is an ancient activity, combining the mystical properties of waters with the pure joy of…

USRowing Diversity Invitational Recap

Posted on August 5, 2011 at 12:55pm 0 Comments

I honestly felt as if Rochester is the friendliest city I have ever been to. Upon arriving to city limits, we…

I was researching a sermon about social justice issues and water. I followed quite a few broken links on FB, USA Swimming, the 2009 movie about Cullen Jones and Maritza Correia and found a link that worked!!!

I've been lifeguarding and swimming since a teenager and had already made a quite of few of the social justice and white privilege observations on my own. It was a wonderful relief to find other people with much more research and documentation confirming what I'd already seen and experienced!

Thank you so much.

Thanks, Jayson!  I have learned about Diversity in Aquatics from Thaddeus Gamory.  We coach together with Palm Beach Masters in Delray Beach.

Hi Jayson,

I'm a volunteer for Raleigh Swimming Association and was looking for ways to get out the word about the upcoming National Hispanic Heritage Swim Meet.  While looking through US Swimming site came across yours late last year.

Jayson,
My daughter recently attended a camp in Texas. The Southern Zone Diversity Swim Camp. She had a great time and I started searching for more!

Hi Jayson,

I was looking for new avenues to advertise our resort Lalaguna Villas here in the Philippines. You came up in search.

I had actually seen this website a few years ago when someone shared an article on Miriam Lynch with me.  Didn't realize at the time that the site was something you needed to sign up for.  Then in a meeting last week, Lisa Dahl (member of the USAS Diversity & Inclusion committee) was recommending the we get signed up.  Wish I had realized to scope of this site a couple years ago.
