“We are extremely proud to have Devon, Griffin and Gus representing the Carmel Swim Club at the Central Zone Select Camp,” said Head Coach/CEO Chris Plumb. “This honor reflects the hard work they have put into training this year and could be the inspiration they need to catapult their swimming careers and bring them to the next level of swimming they have worked so hard for.”
During the four-day camp, swimmers will participate in five long course workouts and will have the opportunity to learn from professionals about post-race recovery, psychological training skills, nutrition and race strategy.
