About the Event
Who should attend?
Swimmers, do you aspire to join a college team? Serious swimmers and their families in 8th- 11th grade who aspire to compete in college should join the seminar. For Junior National swimmers, recruiting starts in June after 10th grade. Futures and sectional level swimmers should start their recruiting campaign before Christmas of 11th grade. An early understanding of the process and expectations can make a huge difference in recruiting options and success.
What will we learn?
Diana will share a plan that serious swimmers and their families should follow to find the best college where the student-athlete will thrive personally, academically, and athletically. The heart of the discussion will be how to begin and follow through on the first step of college recruiting: crafting a college list. You will depart with an understanding of the process, steps to take, priorities, expected times and grades, handouts, a calendar, and resources to support your efforts.
