College Swimming & Diving Recruiting for High School Athletes

Get Recruited for College Swimming & Diving

Be Our Next Success Story

If your dream is to swim or dive in college, you’ve taken a great first step.  Getting recruited for swimming and diving is not easy, however, it is certainly achievable if you know how to navigate the college recruiting process.  We teach you how to successfully do just that and realize your dream of swimming &  diving collegiately. Remember us, the little people, when you are winning your Olympic Gold Medal.    

Swimming & diving is an equivalency sport for NCAA scholarship purposes which means partial scholarships can be awarded to meet the NCAA limit per school.  For example, an NCAA Division II school can award 18 players each a 1/2 equivalent scholarship and still meet the team limit of 9.

START YOUR RECRUITING EARLY AND WITH A PLAN! The earlier you begin, the better your chances of being seen by college coaches, evaluated, and ultimately offered a scholarship.

How To Get Recruited for Swimming & Diving In College
  1. Create Your Athletic Profile
  2. Set Realistic Expectations (Division of play & Geography)
  3. Perfect your event(s) and train hard for your best times
  4. Connect with college coaches
  5. Repeat Steps 1-4

Academics are critical!  As you can see, there are more swimmers on every roster than the total number of scholarships available which means not everyone on the roster is receiving a full swimming & diving scholarship.  In most cases, there will be left over money for the family to cover for college. Academics can be a big factor here. The higher your GPA and SAT and/or ACT, the more “academic” money you can receive from each college which decreases the amount you will owe out of pocket.

Our Reputation Speaks For Itself

“My daughter played basketball at App State. The reason she played there was because of what we learned from CollegePrep…after tearing her ACL late in her junior year, she fell off the recruiting map…essentially the entire recruiting process was fast forwarded and made sense to our family...”

- Thomas T, Father of a female D1 Basketball Player

“…We weren’t sure how important getting his name out there to colleges would be but we quickly found out how invaluable the recruiting resume is…the communication from colleges started pouring in immediately. The only thing we ended up having to do was decide on which school was best suited for Austin…”

- Debbie R, Mother of a male D2 Football Player

“Our experience was A+++...have one regret. I wish we signed up earlier!! In fact, my younger daughter is a rower and is entering her freshman year…I will be signing her up in the Fall. We committed on Easter Sunday of her junior year, which is pretty early. My best endorsement is I am using them again.”

- Jim M, Father of a female D1 Golfer and D1 Rower

“…When we look back, if it wasn’t for you teaching us, Tulane wouldn’t have ever heard of Grant. Although Grant was offered 3 other full scholarships, Tulane was the best school. You taught us how to do everything and made it really easy for us….”

- Debbie F, Mother of a male D1 Basketball Player

“Jess verbally committed to NYACK today – she got a full offer and loved everything about the school – the area – the girls – so she got her wish and got to commit early and will sign in the early Spring...scholarship is worth about $34k/year…”

- Steve L, Father of a female D2 Basketball Player

“Words cannot begin to express how grateful we are to have had you teach us the recruiting process…The opportunity to come in contact with so many wonderful schools and coaches could not have happened without your program…”

- Shannon K, Mother of a male NAIA Golfer
