What is a swimposium?

A swimposium is a one-day clinic providing educational presentations for swimmers, coaches, parents, and officials from prominent speakers within USA Swimming, South Texas Swimming, and the US National Team. USA Swimming helps fund a limited number of these events per year nationwide, and this is the first time it will make its way to our Rio Grande Valley.
