Rachel Dildine Invited to Participate in USA Swimming’s 2021 Zone Select Performance Workshop
Workshop highlights the best local swimmers from each zone
Chesterton, IN native Rachel Dildine was selected to participate in USA Swimming’s 2021 Zone Select Performance Workshop. These workshops will consist of the top swimmers in each zone based on the 2019 and 2020 Long Course Meters (LCM) seasons combined. It will be held virtually on Friday, June 25th (Central & Western Zones) and Monday, June 28th (Eastern & Southern Zones).
“We are extremely proud to have Rachel representing Duneland Swim Club at the Zone Select Performance Workshop,” said Duneland Head Coach, Jim Voss. “This honor reflects the hard work they put into training over the past several years and is the next step toward her life-long dream of representing the United States at international competitions.”
The goal of this workshop is motivational and is designed to develop the athlete’s leadership skills. Athletes will have the opportunity to learn from two organizations: Growing Leaders and More Brave. Both organizations have extensive experience working with student athletes as well as providing leadership training.
The top swimmers in each Zone are selected for the workshop. Swimmers are selected automatically through USA Swimming’s SWIMS database based on 2019 and 2020 LCM combined IMX point scores. Criteria for this year’s workshop was modified due to the COVID-19 year and can be reviewed on the USA Swimming website.
