UCLA Club Artistic Swimming (AS) is a student-run and student-funded organization that started in 2021. This year, we have ten active swimmers led by our dedicated volunteer coaches, Karen Rosolowski, Olga Moliotova, and Jennifer Beckwith. Though we are a club sport, UCLA Artistic Swimming competes against other clubs and varsity-level schools such as Stanford and Ohio State University. This year, we plan to compete at Stanford during the Winter quarter and qualify for the 2024 US Collegiate National Championships in Texas. Making it to Nationals in Texas is our top goal - we want to represent our school at the highest level despite our new start. Our team comprises swimmers and coaches from all over the nation, with countless accolades. Our dedication, passion, and love for artistic swimming are evident in how we work and strive to bring awareness to this amazing sport.
Our team constantly needs funding to help our athletes get the gear, travel, and competition fees covered during the season. UCLA AS’s first season was paid mostly out of pocket by the athletes, so the funds for swimmers to compete without worrying about such financial struggles are greatly needed.
Your donations can help us Bruins get to all our planned travel events and competitions this year! Donations allow us to travel as a team and would help us with our flights, road trips, hotel stays, meals, and other needs for competitions.
Your donations will also go towards some of the most important aspects of our sport: equipment. We have been training without our sound system, which is crucial for practices and routines. We could use your help, allowing both coaches and swimmers to train efficiently. These donations also provide gear for our swimmers, such as swimsuits, caps, goggles, backpacks, parkas, and so much more used throughout the year.
