Event Description

The Eastern Zone will host our 4th ever Diversity Select Camp and Regional Coaches Summit

in an effort to identify the emerging young diverse athletes from under-represented populations

in the sport. LSC Chairs and Coaches from each LSC can offer them a unique motivational

and educational experience. Participants from the various LSCs that comprise the Eastern

Zone will participate in a three-day program, which includes pool training, motivational, and

education sessions and team-building activities.

Purpose:

Celebrate the diversity in Eastern Zone Swimming through inspiration of athletes, coaches and

volunteers. Create local ambassadors and leaders to grow our sport.

Goals:

Empower athletes from ethnically under represented populations and their coaches to:

 Demonstrate the viability of multicultural success in swimming within their local LSC

 Achieve performance excellence throughout the sport

 Introduce the benefits and value of participating in the sport of swimming

 Develop positive leaders and role models that others from multicultural backgrounds

can emulate

 Connect, network and promote the virtues of the sport of swimming through a

comprehensive strategy involving the athletes, coaches and LSC Diversity Chairs in

their own local LSCs and throughout the Eastern Zone.
