Arkansas Masters Swimming would like to encourage our swimmers to compete in zone and national meets. Participating in meets encourages individuals to set goals and work toward them. Additionally, it increases the visibility of the sport, and the swimmers in our state.
What is funded?
Any ARKM registered master swimmer can apply to the Arkansas Masters Swimming LMSC for funds to cover the following for a single USMS South Central Zone or National meet (1 meet allowed per year, per swimmer):
- Meet registration fee
Total allowed per individual per meet is $250 to cover the above expenses.
How does it work?
Step 1: Request the funds
If you’re interested in applying for funds send Carie O’Banion (firstname.lastname@example.org) an email requesting funding for <swim meet name> and include the following information:
- Swim meet name
- Swim meet dates
- Swim meet location
- Your name
- Registration fee
- Events you’re planning to swim
- Total amount of funding that you are requesting
Carie will let you know if funds will be available to you within 10 days.
Step 2: Proof of completion
