Coach Don Watkinds Swim Award

Coach Don was a true believer that swimming should be a sport that serves all individuals.  Don coached for many years in San Diego, coaching all levels of swimmers including para-swimming athletes.  To ensure his legacy and values continue, the community set up this scholarship fund.  Each year the fund provides scholarships to swimmers who come from underrepresented groups.
