RMSC's Tia Thomas and Sean Santos have been selected for the National Diversity Select Camp.
Throughout this camp, athletes who are members of minority populations will be encouraged to become leaders in their swimming communities. There will be pool training, motivational and educational sessions and team-building activities. The swimmers’ coaches have also all been invited to attend.
To be eligible for selection, athletes must represent a minority group population that makes up less than 10% of the current USA Swimming membership. The swimmers must be between 14 and 16 years old on the first day of camp and must not have already attended a Diversity Select Camp.
There is also a time component to selection. These swimmers must have achieved at least one Diversity Select Camp time standard, found here. The times are current AAAA National Motivational Times for the 13-14 age group.
Congratulations Tia and Sean!
