College Swimming Scholarships. Swimming Recruiting


College Swimming recruiting has changed a lot in recent times. You need more than talent and motivation to get a swimming and diving scholarship. You need to market yourself to the college swim coaches. Let Powerhouse Classic help you; simply click on the create my profile button and lets get started today.j


The majority of athletic scholarships are classed as “equivalency” scholarships and not “full ride” as is the case with basketball and football, sometimes called “head count” sports.


In one way this is good news for high school swimmers and divers. Take women’s swimming as an example: The swim coach can divide the “14” swimming scholarships between a larger number of swimmers. Say 25 partial swimming scholarships instead of 14 full ride.


Women’s Swimming


NCAA DI 14 scholarships per college

NCAA DII 8.1 scholarships per college


NCAA DI 9.9 scholarships per college

NCAA DII 8.1 scholarships per college

NAIA colleges offer 16 scholarships for men and 19 for women.

NJCAA colleges offer 20 scholarships for men and 21 for women.


It pays to be proficient in several strokes and events. The key to the NCAA dual meet structure means that athletes can swim in in a number of events and relays so versatility is the key. Your ability as an “all rounder” is much sought after by smaller teams that have problems filling lanes during dual meets, this can substantially increase your chances of landing a swimming scholarship. Larger teams are able to be more selective and recruit more stroke specialists.


One of the first things you need to do if you want a swimming scholarship is register and be certified by the NCAA Initial-Eligibility Clearinghouse. Go to link on the bottom of this page to register.


Consider attending a swimming camp. it could be the best thing you ever do. Most college swimming camps will help you with technical instruction and video analysis from coaches and current student-athletes swimmers that come from from both the men’s and women’s swimming and diving programs.
