COLLEGE RECRUITING INFORMATION

Don Henshaw

We wanted to highlight a free website called LookForIt (www.lookforit.com) designed specifically to assist high school swimmers with their college analysis and selection process.

Thousands of high school swimmers have used LookForIt, from Junior Varsity swimmers to Olympic medalists including Torri Huske, Bella Sims, Regan Smith, and Erica Sullivan. And college coaches also have access to LookForIt for recruiting purposes.

LookForIt compares a swimmer’s best times against the top times of virtually all of the Division I, II, III, NAIA and NJCAA colleges in the US with a swim team. One of the most powerful features is a color coded dashboard that reports each college where the athlete might be the #1 (blue), #2 (red), #3 (silver), or close to the #3 swimmer (yellow) in an event at a college based on the comparison of the athlete’s swim times to each specific college’s times.  We have links into the academic and swim websites of each college; detailed analysis of the cost, demographics and academics of each college; graphs of your swim time improvement including comparison with age group and college time standards; and many other features.

Here’s an example of the athlete dashboard:
