Bolles Swimming - College Swimming Resources

We are proud of the Bolles Swimming tradition of preparing student-athletes for collegiate success and beyond.  We feel it is a critical part of our mission to support student-athletes in the search and selection of a collegiate swimming career.  There is an opportunity for everyone and the resources here should help you get started with the process.  Student-athletes and their families entering high school should review these resources and open up a discussion with your Bolles Swimming coach about next steps. 

While we want to encourage every one of our student-athletes to pursue swimming in college, we also want to maintain our joy for improving as a student-athlete each day - in other words; "keep the main thing the main thing."  Here at Bolles our main thing is to be the BEST at getting better!  Go Bolles!
