USA Swimming National Diversity Select Camp Roster

RMSC's Tia Thomas and Sean Santos have been selected for the National Diversity Select Camp.

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!
