The March-April 2015 edition of Splash Digital is now available online
and as a mobile app
for your iPad and iPhone.
Here’s a look at some of the stories you’ll find in this issue:
From top to bottom, the NCAA Division I Women’s and Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships might be the most thrilling meets outside of the Olympic Games. The women are set to compete March 19-21 in Greensboro, N.C., followed by the men, March 26-28 in Iowa City. Here’s a look at what you can expect to see this year.
The Perfect Fit
We recently talked to coaches from NCAA Division I, II and III programs about what sets each level apart from the next – other than the amount of scholarship money available – and what type of swimmer might be suited to each level. Here’s what they had to say.
More Opportunity than Money
Full athletic scholarships, at least in swimming, are more talked about than applied. They aren’t as plentiful, either in number or size, as many high school seniors and their parents believe.
Open Water National Championships
To say USA Swimming’s Open Water Program Manager Bryce Elser is eagerly anticipating the U.S. Open Water National Championships April 24 and 26 is like saying Michael Phelps is always determined to win, or Missy Franklin is versatile and resilient.
Can’t stand the heat? Get out of the kitchen. This lesson about dealing with nerves in high-pressure situations doesn’t apply to most 10-year-olds. But Mia Wurster got that lesson on a very literal front when the swimmer was a contestant on the reality TV Show “MasterChef Junior.”
