Clayton Bobo and Coach Rey Aguilar traveled to Colorado Springs, Colo on Jan 19-22 for USA Swimming’s National Select Camp. The camp took place at the Olympic Training Center. Bobo was chosen as one of 34 male swimmers from across the country.

We are very proud to have Clayton representing Dad’s Club at the 2017 National Select Camp.During the three-day camp, Bobo experienced the day-to-day routine of a National Team athlete and utilize the state of the art training facilities. The campers learned from top professionals about post-race recovery, psychological training skills, nutrition and race strategy. The athletes also had the opportunity to hear from Olympian Elizabeth Beisel and National teamer Seth Stubblefield about their National team experience.  


“One of the longest standing Club Development programs, the National Select Camp is part of the pathway to the USA Swimming National Team, A strategic element of this camp is teaching and reinforcing the National Team culture which has always been a key part of the USA’s success in international competition. We want these athletes to cultivate a deep-rooted allegiance to Team USA.”

Bobo was one of 34 top USA Swimming athletes selected for the camp. Swimmers are selected from the SWIMS database of top times during the 2016 qualifying period, where the two fastest athletes in each event, ranging from age 14 to 18 are invited to the camp.
