Merton Selected For National Diversity Select Camp
February 23, 2016
We are excited to announce that Emily Merton has been selected to attend the National Diversity Select Camp at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO this Spring.
She was selected based off of her performances in the pool including her best events and IMX Score. The camp serves to promote and encourage young athletes from ethnically under-represented populations and their coaches, to achieve excellence at every level and become leaders and role models for others from multi-cultural backgrounds.
The AmberJax have been long-time partners with the JaxParks Swim Program in an effort to promote the benefits of swimming to our local communities. In addition to Emily’s performance in the pool, she has given back to her own community through the JaxParks summer swim team as a volunteer. She is an exemplary example of the heart of AmberJax to achieve success in the pool and to promote and encourage the sport of swimming to all Jacksonville communities.
