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 us. For Junior National swimmers, recruiting starts as soon as June after 10th grade. Futures and sectional level swimmers should start their recruiting campaign before Christmas of 11th grade. Early and focused preparation is more likely to lead to success.
What will we learn?
In this one-hour presentation, Diana will share a plan that serious swimmers and their families should follow with the goal of finding 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 steps to take, handouts, a calendar, and resources to support your efforts.
