GRIN Honors

At the U.S. Masters Swimming annual meeting in late September, GRIN was honored by the recognition of the achievements of two of our members. 

Lisa Brown, Zionsville Aquatic Masters Coach and Aquatics Director for Zionsville Community Schools was elevated to Coach Level 4.  This level is rewarded upon completion of high levels of leadership contributions, education, achievement and growth and retention. 




Michelle Harter, Indy Aquatic Masters Executive Director, received the June Krauser Communications Award which is presented annually to someone whose work in communications has contributed to the growth, improvement, or success of U.S. Masters Swimming locally, regionally or nationally.

2022 State Championship Bid Application

Greater Indiana Masters Swimming is soliciting bids for the 2022 GRIN State Championship Meet. For the 2022 bid year, the bid will be open to all three areas of the state.  For future years, the rotation will be posted at Participants pay entry fees for the GRIN State Meet and this revenue is passed to the meet hosts making it a rewarding experience for the host team. Meet hosts are encouraged to set a reasonable fee because the meet host will be guaranteed at least $4,000 (the stipend approved by the board) to offset expenses. Even if your club does not have the desire or facility to host the Championship meet, we encourage you to reach out to local age group and high school swim programs, colleges, and YMCAs to let them know of this opportunity. After all, wouldn’t you prefer the Championship meet in your own back yard than somewhere else?
