CW coach Kelton Graham was selected by USA Swimming to be the head coach of the recent Central Zone USA Swimming Diversity Select Camp. The camp was held in Indianapolis at the IUPUI Natatorium in mid-June.
Kelton led a staff of 4 coaches. There were 33 swimmers from all over the Central Zone who were selected to attend the camp. The following are some comments by Kelton about the camp:
My general thoughts were that this was a great experience for kids who did not make the National Diversity Select Camp. I think it really inspired them to keep pushing themselves and make new friends in the process. The kids made a face book page and a slide show. There were representatives from USA swimming there along with a lot of club coaches who came with their kids. The kids got to meet Byron Davis (African American swimmer who missed the Olympic team by .03 of a second) and he gave them all helpful advice about how to think positive and handle the jitters before they raced.
Please join the CW coaching staff and Board in congratulating Kelton for this honor.
