Athlete Advisory Group (AAG)

U.S. Paralympics Swimming has established an Athlete Advisory Group “AAG” to serve as the collective voice for its athlete population. The members of the AAG liaise with the NGB’s professional staff to foster collaboration between program staff and athletes. The current advisory group includes Joe Wise, who is also the USOPC Athlete Advisory Council chair for Para Swimming, as well as AAC alternate Amanda Everlove and Paralympians McKenzie Coan and Robert Griswold.


These athletes can provide guidance and unparalleled expertise based on their experience and long-term involvement with the program. Please feel free to reach out to these athletes, as well as to the U.S. Paralympics Swimming staff to ask questions and provide input about our programs.
