USMS Award Recipients

Recipients of The U.S. Masters Swimming Dorothy Donnelly Service Award

As a volunteer-driven organization, USMS is grateful to the hundreds of volunteers who give their time, talent, and expertise to help all phases of our programs. The DDSA is given to those volunteers whose service stands out in its scope and its impact on the program and the USMS members who have benefited from their efforts on the local, regional, and national level. The recipient must be a registered member of USMS.

Up to 15 people are selected each year for the USMS Service Award with nominations coming from LMSCs, clubs, and individuals.

To make a nomination, submit a one-page letter citing the reasons the
individual deserves recognition and the award. Be sure to include:
• The name, address, Email and phone information for both nominee and nominator
• Where the service was performed: local (club or LMSC), zone, or national level or any combination thereof
• The impact of service to new programs, improvements or enhancements of on-going programs
• The scope of the service including effect on members who have benefited
