As we all know, Florida is at the top of the list in terms of young talent coming moving up the ranks in the sport. Whether you are talking Florida Gold Coast or Florida Swimming, our state hosts some of the greatest programs in the entire nation for youth development and taking that “next step” closer to olympic hopefuls. USA Swimming just announced their 2017 National Select Camp Roster and we were, of course, not disappointed in how many Florida Swimmers made the list. The following swimmers were on it.


Olivia McMurray Swim Florida 400FR

Elise Bauer Central Florida Marlins 800FR

Emma Weyant Sarasota YMCA Sharks 800FR

Caitlin Brooks Gator Swim Club 100BK

Talia Bates Gator Swim Club 100FLY

Isabel Traba Sarasota YMCA Sharks 200FL

Kathleen Golding South Florida Aquatic Club 200IM


Andrew Matejka Gator Swim Club 200FR

Arik Katz Sarasota YMCA Sharks 1500FR

Congratulations to all of those swimmers selected!
