The Eastern Zone 3rd ever Diversity Select Summit will be held at the University of Maryland June 25-28th, 2015 in an effort to identify the emerging young diverse athletes from under-represented populations in the sport, LSC Chairs and Coaches from each LSC and offer them a unique motivational and educational experience. Participants from the various LSCs that comprise of the Eastern Zone would participate in a three-day program, which includes pool training, motivational, and education sessions and team-building activities.

See the flyer for details. Athlete Applications must be postmarked by May 5, 2015 (new deadline) and here is the link for the Coaches Application (see flyer for all the details). Please share this information with your club coaches, athletes and parents.
