The 2015-16 NCAA season has already kicked off, and collegiate teams around the country are getting into their fall training to prepare for upcoming competition. The Florida State Seminoles, in particular, want you to know what their program has to offer, and their hype video takes you through the team mentality from swimmers to coaches and gives you a closer look at what being a Seminole really means.

Florida State scored point at the national level in last year’s NCAA season, with both teams hovering around 25th place. The women placed 24th, while the men finished in 26th. The ‘Noles are also coming off of 7th place finishes from both teams at the ACC Championships.

Looking ahead, FSU will swim at the All-Florida Invite from September 17-20th. This meet is set in a prelims-finals format, and will be held at the University of Florida in Gainesville.

The ‘Noles head coach Frank Bradley is excited about the upcoming season. “That’s the end goal,” he said. “Getting as many people to NCAA’s as possible. We have veterans and we have rookies that can get there if they trust the process and the body of work they put in throughout the season.” FSU signed a combined 19 athletes to their program for this season.
