Alto Swim Club athlete Jackson Picard was selected to USA Swimming’s 13th Annual National Diversity Select Camp, to be held May 2-5 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.
“Our team is thrilled to have one of our own Alto Swim Club athletes participating in the National Diversity Select Camp,” Alto Swim Club Head Coach Laura Mitchell said. “This is a truly special experience for our team and for Jackson.”
Picard will be one of 48 swimmers from around the country selected to participate and will be attending the camp with his coach, Laura Mitchell. The purpose of the camp is to instill a vision of success and inspire athletes from ethnically under-represented populations to become leaders in the sport of swimming. The National Diversity Select Camp brings together some of USA Swimming’s most diverse talent for an extended weekend of pool training, leadership development, team-building activities and learning.
