2021 Regional Diversity Select Camps
To further evolve the Diversity Camps pathway and identify emerging young, diverse athletes in varying regions and offer a unique motivational and educational experience, USA Swimming will pilot the Regional Diversity Camps starting 2021. This integral step will help athletes move from the local and regional level onto the national scene.
To empower athletes from diverse backgrounds and under-represented populations to:
• Demonstrate the viability of multicultural success in swimming
• Achieve performance excellence at every level of the sport
• Expound the benefits and value of participating in the sport of swimming
• Be positive leaders and role models that others from multicultural backgrounds can emulate.
