USA Swimming, the national governing body for the sport of swimming in the U.S., and Phillips 66, an energy manufacturing and logistics company, on Tuesday announced a multi-year partnership renewal.
Phillips 66’s renewed commitment to USA Swimming and the USA Swimming Foundation marks the longest running partnership in sports’ national governing body history, with the 50-year anniversary coming in 2023.
“We are thrilled to have such an engaged partner continue to support our organization and our athletes, helping to shine a light on the importance of swimming safety for all children across the country,” said USA Swimming President & CEO Tim Hinchey III. “To reach such a milestone moment with a corporate partner speaks volumes about the strategic collaboration and the successes we have realized over the years. Together we will continue to look at ways of taking the sport to more communities around the country and educating as many young children and families about the important and life-saving skill of swimming.”
“Phillips 66 is proud to have enjoyed a long and storied partnership with USA Swimming,” said Sonya Reed, SVP HR & corporate communications. “Through the USA Swimming Foundation, we help provide low or no-cost swim lessons to one million children annually and we draw tremendous inspiration from Team USA’s athletes and their pursuit of excellence.”
