2023 Direct Athlete Support (Monthly Stipend)

Athlete Stipends General Criteria (Pool)

To be eligible athletes must be:

  • Be registered USA Swimming Members in good standing. All team members 18 and over must complete a background check and Athlete Protection Training five days after being named to the Team.
  • Be eligible to represent the U.S. in international competition.
  • Be actively training and competing and provide a training and competition calendar signed by their coach.
  • Athletes may only receive funding in one discipline (Pool or Open Water) and one event.
QUALIFICATION CRITERIA
September 2022 - June 2023 Monthly Athlete Stipend Qualifying Criteria: Individual Olympic Events

To be eligible athletes must:

  • Be named to the current year USA Swimming National Team. Criteria can be found below.
  • The athlete must be eligible to represent, and intend to represent, the U.S. in international competition.
  • The top 28 athletes of each gender will receive Athlete Stipends.
  • Athletes who are named to the 2022-2023 National Team and are ranked 1st in their respective event(s) will receive athlete stipends.
  • Athletes who are named to the 2022-2023 National Team and are ranked 2nd, 3rd or 4th in the 100 and 200 free will receive athlete stipends.
  • If all athletes listed above have qualified for funding, and less than 28 athletes per gender meet the above requirements, athletes who are on the 2022-2023 National Team will be ranked according to their percentage faster than the FINA A Time Standard for the 2022 FINA World Championships.
  • This percentage will be calculated by subtracting the swimmer's National Team Time in an Event from the "A" Time Standard in that same Event, then dividing the difference by the "A" Time Standard in that Event.  Calculations will be carried to the one-thousandth of a percent (i.e., x.xxx%).
    • For example, if the “A” Time standard in the 100-meter freestyle is :60 seconds and Swimmer #1’s National Team ranked time in the 100-meter Freestyle is :54 seconds, then Swimmer #1 has swum 6 seconds faster than the “A” Time Standard in the 100-meter Freestyle. Using the formula described above (60 seconds minus 54 seconds, divided by 60 seconds) Swimmer #1’s Percentage faster than the “A” Time Standard would be 10%. If the “A” Time Standard in the 200-meter Freestyle is 2 minutes, and Swimmer #2’s National Team ranked time in the 200-meter Freestyle is 1:54, then Swimmer #2 has swum 6 seconds faster than the “A” Time Standard in the 200-meter Freestyle. Using the formula described above (120 seconds minus 114 seconds, divided by 120 seconds) that swimmer’s Percentage faster than the “A” Time Standard would be 5%.

      Swimmer #1’s Percentage faster than the “A” Time Standard (10%) would be considered higher than Swimmer #2’s Percentage faster than the “A” Time Standard (5%).

      If a swimmer’s National Team ranked time in an Event is slower than the “A” Time Standard for that same Event, their percentages will be negative. Using the same example above, if Swimmer #1’s National Team ranked time in the 100-meter Freestyle is 1:06, their percentage faster than the “A” standard would be -10% (60 seconds minus 66 seconds equals negative 6 seconds negative 6 seconds divided by 60 seconds equals -10%). If Swimmer #2’s National Team ranked time in the 200-meter Freestyle is 2:06 their percentage faster than the “A” standard would be -5% (120 seconds minus 126 seconds equals negative 6 seconds; negative 6 seconds divided by 120 seconds equals -5%). In this case, Swimmer #2’s Percentage faster than the “A” Time Standard (-5%) is faster than Swimmer #1’s Percentage faster than the “A” Time Standard (-10%).
  • This process will continue until 28 men and 28 women have qualified for Athlete Stipends.
    • In the event there is a tie for the 28th position, both athletes will receive support.

     

  • Athletes may only receive funding in one discipline (Pool or Open Water).
