"I am excited to go to Ireland for a training trip.  It’s going to be a great experience!  I am very thankful to be getting this opportunity to swim and to have a cultural experience at the same time.  I look forward to discovering a new country with my teammates and to also pursue a journey of my own"

"The team’s trip to Ireland for our training camp is a dream come true!  Dublin will provide us a city rich in history and culture as well as a world class training facility. By staying in downtown Dublin, our team will be immersed in a vibrant, magical and welcoming community.  We can explore and education ourselves on the uniqueness of Ireland and its people.  All the while, we will practice in the country’s national training center and be exposed to and learn from their best swimmers, divers and coaches.  This global experience will enrich our knowledge and understanding in and out of the pool."
