Many Swimmers and Divers worldwide are swimming an outstanding time in their chosen events, or completing near flawless dives, but this alone is certainly not enough to ensure you will be seen by a College Swimming or Diving coach. Our experience in securing Full Scholarships for AD Alumni to NCAA DI Top 5 Swimming programs positions us as College Swimming experts to really guide you accurately.

Be sure to compete at meetings governed by your State or National Federations, where times and scores are official. This will provide you with a platform to launch your campaign in securing a Swimming Scholarship. Focus on one or two disciplines and 3-5 events in your Swimming, allowing Coaches to understand your areas of strength when they are considering you as a future Student Athlete on their roster. Meanwhile, Divers are encouraged to maintain a diverse variety of dives to attract the interest of Diving coaches. You can never have too much video of you competing…!

Your academic grades need to be considered too, as different Divisions have different Academic qualification criteria. Academic grades are the backbone of your College experience, perform well in the classroom and you can play on the team. High School grades and SAT exam results can be used to your advantage to secure a combination of Academic and Athletic Scholarship.
