Aquazot’s Thomas Smith and Justin Hanson are selected to go to the Western Zone Select Camp in Tempe, Arizona!
USA Swimming sponsors four Zone Select Camps in an effort to identify the emerging young athletes in each Zone and offer them a unique motivational and educational experience. The Zone Select Camps are viewed as an integral step for athletes to move from the local and Zone level onto to the national scene.
28 male and 28 female athletes are selected in each of the four
Selected girls must be age 12-13 at the time of performance.
Selected boys must be age 13-14 at the time of performance.
15 athletes of each sex are selected based on 2011 Long Course
Meters (LCM) IMX point scores according to the following:
Eight girls age 12 and eight boys age 13
Seven girls age 13 and seven boys age 14
Then, the fastest swimmer in each Zone in each Long Course Meters (LCM) Olympic event (excluding the 50 free, including the 800 and 1500 for both sexes) is invited for a total of 13 additional male and 13 additional female athletes. If a swimmer was already selected based on IMX score, the next fastest swimmer is selected in that event.
Congratulations Thomas and Justin!
