U.S. Masters Swimming Recognition and Awards PDF Print E-mail

Swimmer gives back—and gets recognized!

Members of U.S. Masters Swimming don’t just confine their participation to the pool. There are many volunteer opportunities for their talent, expertise, and generosity. USMS recognizes the commitment of those who give back with the Dorothy Donnelly Service Award, honoring one of USMS's outstanding volunteers. The award recognizes those whose contributions stand out in service to local, regional, and national programs. Up to 15 people are selected each year with nominations coming from Local Masters Swimming Committees, clubs, and individuals.

Dan Kornblatt has devoted inordinate efforts to the success of his team, the Binghamton University Masters Swimming (BUMS) while also engaging generously at all levels of U.S. Masters Swimming. In 1984 Dan was one of the founding members of the BUMS and soon took on the role of President. Over the next three decades, Dan was the bond that held the club together as it experienced at least 14 coach changes. Dan took charge of all team administrative functions, working silently and tirelessly to propel the BUMS success.

Dan networked extensively within the Niagara Local Masters Swimming Committee (LMSC) to promote meets and to learn from other coaches how to grow the BUMS. For 30 years, Dan was the Director for the BUMS annual meet. Each year he gave competitive opportunities to hundreds of swimmers and often sacrificed his own competitive participation in order to handle the club duties.

In 2011, Dan became head coach. The team accomplished the goals he set, winning the Small Team Division at the Colonies Zone SCY Championships in 2011 and the Large Team Division in 2012 and 2014. In 2013, the team placed 6th at U.S Masters Swimming Spring National Championships. Dan continued to grow the team by actively recruiting tri-athletes and distance swimmers.

In a small community, with limited pool time, Dan built the most successful program in the history of Niagara LMSC. He has coached National and Colonies Zone Champions to dozens of Niagara LMSC records.

Within the Niagara Local Masters Swimming Committee (LMSC) Dan has been a long time Member of the Board. He served as its Chairperson from 2000 to 2004, Vice Chair from 2012-2014, and, as the member of the Competition Committee, charged with providing more meets. In his role as Vice Chair he was an invaluable resource for the new Chair, providing advice and historical insight. It is safe to say that the Niagara LMSC would not be achieving its all-time high membership and meet participation without Dan’s 30 years of service.

Dan is the third recipient of this national award as a Niagara LMSC member, joining George McVey (2012) and Gene Donner (1997).
