What is the Partnership?

TrueSport and USA Swimming’s Deck Pass partnership seek to influence and encourage youth swimmers to win the right way. Through exciting activities in areas like teamwork, leadership, goal-setting, clean competition, and decision-making, more than 200,000 Deck Pass users have the ability to gain skills that will help them succeed both in and out of the pool.

How Does It Work?

Swimmers earn TrueSport patches in USA Swimming’s Deck Pass app by completing TrueSport lessons. These patches are earned by completing word searches, solving puzzles, and watching videos. These lessons, along with encouragement and stories from four-time Olympic medalist and TrueSport Athlete Ambassador Peter Vanderkaay, are designed to help Deck Pass members learn more about TrueSport values like respect, courage, teamwork, and more! Be one of the first individuals to complete the TrueSport Deck Pass program and receive free swag or an invitation to a video chat with a TrueSport Ambassador.

Throughout the spring and summer, TrueSport and Deck Pass will be attending USA Swimming-sanctioned meets all around the country.
