SSC Senior Trip

Southeastern Swim Club

Senior Trip History!

In the summer of 1997, the Southeastern Senior Team took the first training trip in the history of the club.  This week-long trip was planned by Coach Andy Pedersen as a means to not only provide an opportunity for intensive swimming training and developing team unity, but also to offer a unique program during which our older swimmers make office of admission college visits. A primary goal of this trip is to familiarize SSC Senior Team athletes with the college selection process – college selection experts will be built!  The Seniors have a plan to go a different direction every year thereby rotating through every four years.
