Academics, location, swim program, division level, team dynamics, and overall college cost kept me up many nights. I don’t remember my college search being quite so stressful but then again, that was 1983 and I was being recruited by a few top swimming programs. My parents lucked out with four of their girls receiving full swimming scholarships and a brother attending West Point. Nowadays, colleges are twice the cost (or more), and there are vastly more great athletes vying for coveted scholarships.
My kids grew up swimming with our local club and achieved fairly high levels in the sport including placing at Sectionals and achieving Junior National time standards. I remind them that the times they’ve achieved would’ve had them placing in the top 16 at senior nationals when I was their age. However, USA Swimming is a lot faster and has much more depth now.
