USA Swimming announced the rosters for its 2020 Zone Select Camps on Friday, with this year’s version forced into a virtual format due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Led by James Leath, founder of Unleash the Athlete, the online sessions will include “discussions on leadership, including navigating change, setting and adapting goals, mental resiliency and character development.” There will also be virtual panel discussions with former and current USA National Team members, including Kelsi Dahlia, Hannah Moore, Sean Ryan and Tom Luchsinger.
A total of 28 male and 28 female athletes were selected to attend the camp in each of the four Zones: Central, Southern, Western and Eastern.
The selection criteria was as follows:
- 14 athletes of each gender selected based on 2019 Long Course Meters (LCM) IMX point scores according to the following: Seven girls age 12 and seven boys age 13, and seven girls age 13 and seven boys age 14.
- The additional 14 boys and 14 girls spots then went to the fastest swimmer in each Zone in each Long Course Meters (LCM) Olympic event. If a swimmer was already selected based on IMX score, the next fastest swimmer is selected in that event.
