Aquatic Club of the West Shore

Coach Jeff Lyden Swim Scholarship Application

Coach Jeff Lyden has served the Aquatic Club of the West Shore for 15 years as an Assistant Coach. The nonprofit swim team has helped thousands of young swimmers and divers in the greater Harrisburg, PA area since 1998.

When the club ran into financial trouble in 2018, Jeff worked tirelessly without pay helping to put the team back together. Thanks to his enormous generosity and commitment, ACWS is back in business serving youth 5 to 18 years of age in West Shore School District.

To honor Jeff's contributions to the team, the ACWS board of directors established the Coach Jeff Lyden Swim Scholarships, a financial assistance program for elementary & middle school swimmers, to help pay for their club registration fees when they commit to swim with ACWS. All donations are tax-deductible. Contact the ACWS Board of Directors for more information.

Applications will be accepted beginning on August 1st and scholarships will be awarded on or before November 1.
