September 29, 2021 - Congratulations to National Select Team Members and Coaches!
USA Swimming today announced the names of 102 up-and-coming athletes selected for the prestigious 2020 National Select Camps. All camps will be held in person at the Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center in Chula Vista, California.
The National Select Camps, which are slated for October 7-10, 2021 (girls) and October 14-17, 2021 (boys), will provide an invaluable opportunity for growth within the sport of swimming. During the three-day camps, the 51 boys and 51 girls attending will experience the day-to-day routine of a National Team athlete. The campers will learn from top aquatic professionals about post-race recovery, drug and supplement rules, psychological training skills, nutrition and race strategy. 2020 Tokyo Olympic alumni of the program include Katie Ledecky, Michael Andrew, Lily King, Hali Flickinger, Kieran Smith and Bobby Finke.
Swimmers were selected from the SWIMS database using their top time throughout the January 1, 2019-August 31, 2020, qualifying period. The three-fastest athletes in each event within the qualifying age restrictions are invited to the camp. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, USA Swimming postponed hosting the 2020 National Select Camp athletes from January to October 2021.
Representing Pacific Swimming are:

Kevin Zacher (SCSC) - Boys' Head Coach
