USA Swimming has announced its National Select Camp roster for 2019. In all, 96 male and female age-group swimmers have been invited to participate in the camp at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The trip is all-expenses paid for the invited participants and they will have the opportunity to work with some of the best coaches from around the country as well as other high-level sports consultants.

Swimmers are chosen for the program based on their top time during the 2018-2019 season qualifying period (September 1, 2018-August 31, 2019). The three fastest athletes aged 14-16 in each event, ranging from age 14 to 16, are invited. Additionally, the 6 highest-scoring IMX athletes aged 14-15 for females and 15-16 for males are also invited.

Monique Shelton of Beach Cities Swimming will lead the coaching staff of the girls’ camp, while Mike DeBoor of Lakeside Swim Team will serve as the head coach for the boys camp.

The girls’ camp will run from October 10th-13th and the boys’ camp will run from October 24th-27th.

US National Teamer Zane Grothe, who attended the National Select Camp in 2008, will also be working with participants in the boys’ camp.

In addition to the coaching staff, Dr. Tiffany Jones of X-Factor Performance Consulting will speak to the girls’ camp. James Leath of Changing the Game Project will work with the boys’ camp. National Team member Zane Grothe will also be working with the boys’ camp. Grothe was also a participant in the camp in 2008.

Exactly half of the camp staff (7 out of 14) are women. Last year, 6 of 14 staffers were women.

The camp is a big stepping stone to the elite level swimmers. Last year’s camp participants included world-class junior swimmers and top recruits like Claire Curzan, Mia Abruzzo, Gabby Albiero, Jack Armstrong, Tyler Lu, and Ethan Hu.

I saw Zoie Boyle Swim at the Elite Showcase and I was Speechless, She was on fire, her times where incredible! Boyle is one of the toughest swimmers out there. Can’t wait to see Boyle in the Olympics.
