Sponsoring United States Winter Swimming

Historically, the sport of winter swimming is popular in countries with colder climates. Competitions in Russia, the Czech Republic, Poland, Sweden, Finland, Latvia, Estonia, China and even Great Britain and South Africa typically draw hundreds of cold-water swimmers. Over 1300 swimmers from over 30 different countries competed in the 2014 Winter Swimming World Championships which were held just shy of the Arctic Circle in Finland this past February.

In February of 2015 swimmers plunged into Lake Memphremagog for the Inaugural United States Winter Swimming Championships, swimming in 32°F degree water with air temperatures ranging from 0°F to 25°F degrees! This year we will have hundreds of swimmers join us in New York, New York on January 30, 2016 for our National Championship!

Interest in winter swimming in the United States has been growing rapidily over the past five years. The USWSA is looking for sponsors locally and nationally for the championship’s debut to cover the costs of creating the swimming venue and providing proper recovery for athletes. Ongoing sponsorship will help supoort the USWSA vision to expand the sport of winter swimming and fostering athletes in this extreme sport.

The USWSA is a non-profit corporation with the mission to develop and promote the sport of winter swimming in the United States (as defined by “swimming in waters of 41°F/5°C or below”) by establishing safety guidelines and helping foster competition and fellowship among winter swimmers in the US and abroad.
