Updated date: Tuesday, April 26, 2016 - 10:45

Congratulations to the following Oregon swimmers who were named to the Western Zone Select Camp.

  • Lizzy Cook THSC
  • Anton Goswitz HEAT
  • Kaitlyn Dobler TDPS
  • Ethan Heasley HEAT
  • Kevin Keil MAC
  • Tia Lindsay THSC
  • Trent Martinez THSC

USA Swimming sponsors four Zone Select Camps in an effort to identify the emerging young athletes in each Zone and offer them a unique motivational and educational experience. The Zone Select Camps are viewed as an integral step for athletes to move from the local and Zone level onto to the national scene.

28 male and 28 female athletes are selected in each of the four Zones. Selected girls must be age 12-13 at the time of performance. Selected boys must be age 13-14 at the time of performance.

14 athletes of each sex are selected based on 2015 Long Course Meters (LCM) IMX point scores according to the following:

  • Seven girls age 12 and seven boys age 13
  • Seven girls age 13 and seven boys age 14

Then, the fastest swimmer in each Zone in each Long Course Meters (LCM) Olympic event (including the 800 and 1500 for both sexes) is invited for a total of 14 additional male and 14 additional female athletes. If a swimmer was already selected based on IMX score, the next fastest swimmer is selected in that event.
