Does anyone have the inside scoop on the swim team at Amherst?
The spirit beyond the schools web site?
Atmosphere?
Do the men and women practice and compete together?
What is the practice schedule?
What do the swimmers think of the coaching?
Is it a close team?
Is it a pretty serious team?
That training trip looks great... inside scoop?
Thanks so much

    The Amherst Swim team is one of the best in the NESCAC and does well at NCAAIII Nationals as well. The guys and girls practice together, usually twice a day, and the team is a close knit group. There is a training trip to Puerto Rico in January. The coach is very highly regarded and respected and seems to be genuinely well liked as well. It is definitely a serious team with recruited athletes and few, if any, walk ons.

    Do you know if the coach cuts to keep the team small?

    Sorry, I don't know the answer to that. Maybe someone else can answer. You can also check on the Amherst swim site for the swim times of the swimmers on the team and see where you fit in.
