The athletic leadership at William & Mary has eliminated Men's and Women's Swimming. Unfortunately for current athletes, alumni, coaches, parents, and support staff their time and effort invested into Tribe Swimming has been undone in an instant. Our goal is to educate, spread awareness, and encourage financial pledges to support the reinstatement of Tribe Swimming by the William & Mary administration.
