USA Swimming announced the 48 swimmers selected for the annual Diversity Select Camp. The program is in its tenth year and will be held in Colorado Springs May 5-8.

Two-time world champion Simone Manuel is an alumna of the camp. The swimmers selected are between ages 14 and 16. The camp is held at the Olympic Training Center.

The program targets swimmers from under-represented populations.

“National Diversity Select Camp is one of the highlights of the year. What these athletes build over the three days at the Olympic Training Center carries over for the rest of their lives,” said Juan Caraveo, USA Swimming Diversity and Inclusion Consultant, in a USA Swimming Press Release. “We look forward to working with such a high achieving group for a weekend of technique training and leadership development.”

USA Swimming says the goals of the camp are to:

  • “Empower athletes from ethnically under-represented populations
  • 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
  • Assist in recruiting more swimmers and coaches from diverse ethnicities to the sport of swimming
  • Be positive leaders and role models that others from multicultural backgrounds can emulate”

Six coaches were chosen as staffers for the meet. Florida assistant Anthony Nesty will serve as head coach for the camp.
