DCST Swimmers Bjork, Hein and Olson Selected for 2014 National Leadership Camp
DCST Swimmers Jacob Bjork, Daniel Hein and Kylie Olson were all recently selected as part of a group of 20 high school students from around the country to participate in the 2014 National YMCA Swimming Leadership Development Camp in Orlando, Florida. The threesome attended the camp on October 9 – 12.
Applicants were chosen based on their academic performance, leadership skills and community service. The goal of the camp is to further develop personal, team and community leadership skills in YMCA competitive swimmers from around the country.
During the camp, the swimmers participated in leadership workshops presented by nationally-recognized coaches. The camp also includes several practice sessions with Olympians Rowdy Gaines and Mitzi Kremer-Tighe, as well as an afternoon at SeaWorld.
