Regional Diversity Select Camp

Where: Multiple locations.


When: June 1-4, and June 8-11.


More Information: The Regional Diversity Select Camp requires an athlete application.  Athletes will NOT automatically be selected for this camp based on 2022 swims or IMX scores.  The 2023 RDSC application will be open mid-February and close on Friday, March 31st at 5pm MST.  More information and application process - HERE.



Help Wanted - Awards Distribution Committee Lead

After several years of leading the Awards Distribution Committee, Liz Kirchenwitz will be stepping down at the end of the season.  We appreciate her efforts in creating and organizing this committee which is responsible for getting ribbons, medals, and trophies into your swimmer’s hands following meets.  Thank you, Liz!


In order for EBSC swimmers to continue receiving awards in a timely manner, we need someone to fill this important role.  Liz has some great ideas to continue improving the committee and will be happy to share them with a new leader.  A significant benefit of this committee is that the work is done from home.  If you are interested, please reach out to Emily Wanezek at [email protected].
