DMV Swimmers and Divers earn NISCA All-American honors

By Reach for the Wall Staff

In early July, The National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association (NISCA), released its high school All America lists for the 2018-2019 season.  NISCA is a professional organization that supports High School coaches of all aquatic sports. They are dedicated to coaches education and athlete recognition through the All America programs. NISCA allows opportunities for coaches to network and exchange knowledge and experience.

NISCA has “Automatic” standards and “Consideration” standards. In the end, the top 100 athletes in each event will be recognized as All-Americans.  The only way for an athlete to be recognized is for their coach to submit an application. If you didn’t make the list for 2018-2019, here’s the goal time for next season:
