The 2016 Dad’s Club Class swimming in college share their advice with their young team mates.

Jack Calderwood   Georgetown – Always have fun with the sport. The best way to have success is to be light hearted in your hard work. That way, you can come back and work a little harder every day.

Riley Carson  Air Force Academy – Never quit

Caddie Dull Texas Christian University – Always have fun regardless of the outcome of one event or one practice. Remember to always look at the big picture and don’t get weighed down that come with being a young swimmer.

Dylan Presswood  Sewanee University – Stick with it through any frustrations you may have. If you keep your head down and do what you know you need to do it will work out in the end.

Erika Stephenson  University of Incarnate Word – Stay positive, work hard and make it happen.

Charis Won  University of Arkansas at Little Rock – You can achieve your goals if you put your mind to it.

James Zetka  Grand Valley State – Never give up. When it gets difficult that’s when you should try harder.
