Check out the Howard University Swim Team

The 2014-2015 Howard University Swimming and Diving program is off to a Historical start.  Having participated in several meets this Fall and looking to finish the season in record fashion this Winter, the teams has increased its strength in numbers and quality.  The team is still in need of major support.  Being the only Co-ed Division 1 HBCU in the Nation, the Bison provide a dynamic value to the Diversity in Aquatics.  Offering valuable scholarships to deserving students to continue their development in and out of the pool.  We cherish the opportunities to inspire younger swimmers from diverse backgrounds to continue to train hard and pursue higher education.  This is not possible without outside financial support from those who understand the importance of our program.  We encourage everyone to consider supporting our "Sponsor a Swimmer" Fundraising Campaign.  Your contribution will ensure that one swimmer from our program has everything they need to succeed for the entire Academic year and Competitive season.  For more information on how to contribute, contact Head Coach Nic Askew at nicholas.askew@howard.edu.
