On Saturday, February 11th at 10:00, Dr. Elizabeth LaScala of Doing College will give a short presentation (30-45minutes) to high school Junior’s and parents (others are welcome to attend). This will be a general overview or jumpstart which will cover things that kids and parents should be thinking about now as well as a general timeline. We are very fortunate to have Elizabeth lend her expertise as a partner of Orinda Aquatics. Also, Margot Woodward, who has developed our College Planning Section on the website, will hand out a Getting Started Guide, and I will give an overview of the coaches (Ronnie’s and mine) role in the process.
Also, on Saturday, May 5th at 10:00, Elizabeth will return for a more detailed presentation on college selection. And on Monday, July 16 at 5:45, Reed Phillips from NorCal Swim Shop will come and talk to the kids about choosing a swimming fit for college. Reed has a long history of helping high school swimmers look through the broad landscape of college swim programs and find those that might be a fit.
