Emerging Athletes Named to Regional Diversity Select Camp


Emerging Athletes Named to Regional Diversity Select Camp


USA Swimming announced today the names of the up-and-coming athletes selected for the Regional Diversity Select Camp. To continue providing in-person opportunities for our athletes at the age-group level, these Zone-specific camps allow for a unique opportunity where the pool and classroom work alongside one another. The camp will consist of five in-water sessions and a number of classroom sessions. It will provide ignition, motivation and information for athletes to continue to set goals, work hard, excel in swimming and feel empowered to take ownership of their swimming carriers and roles within their community.  

Each camp will consist of up to 28 athletes from each competition category. Athletes must represent an unrepresented community and/or an ethnically underrepresented population that is less than 10% of the current USA Swimming membership.  

This year, there will be 86 different clubs from 39 LSCs represented. To qualify for these application-based camps, athletes must have achieved at least one Regional Diversity Select Camp time standard within the qualifying timeframe. The goals of the camps are to empower athletes from diverse backgrounds and underrepresented populations to: 

Achieve performance excellence at every level of the sport.  

Expound the benefits and value of participating in the sport of swimming.  

Be positive leaders and role models that others from multicultural backgrounds can emulate.  

There will be three camps held across the country:

  • Eastern Zone (University of Maryland, Baltimore County) – June 9-12, 2022 
  • Southern Zone (Florida Aquatics Swimming and Training) – June 8-12, 2022 
  • Western Zone (San Diego State University) – June 2-5, 2022
