Is it hard to get into a d3 school for swimming?

Depends on your times and the school. Some D3 schools have intense programs, others not as much. D3 schools don’t give athletic scholarships so it really comes down to if you can get into the school academically.

actually i havn't been swimming at all, and it's been a month now, i went and got an x-ray and it showed that there's no injury at all. they think i'm just very loose jointed and should spend the next month building up muscle in my shoulder

i see. definitely do rotator cuff exercises with bands, horizontal cuban presses just working on pulling your scaps down, and YTW letter holds. google those if you don’t know what they are, or if you can go to a PT, they can give you things to do too.

I'm a 16 year old girl. Is a 28.68 50free good?

it’s good for long course. probably a little below average for short course. 

bullun asked:
hey, i tore something in my left shoulder 3 weeks ago and whenever i rotate it, it's been making this popping noise. If i work it too much then it starts to hurt. I've heard this is pretty a fairly common injury among swimming, do you know of it? (i think it's a labral tear, or something) Whats the quickest way to recover it so i can get back in the water? (i've been to 2 different doctors and they said just ice, pain killers, and rest, but it's been 3 weeks and not much improvement)

complete rest, and take a non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) such as aleve. two in the morning and two at night. ice too like your doc said. it won’t heal if you keep doing anything with it. rotator cuff rehab exercises may be useful to strengthen it. if it’s been 3 weeks with you icing and swimming on it, then it probably still hurts cause you’re still using it. if not…sometimes it takes more than a couple different doctor visits to figure out what’s really happening. good luck! I know it’s really hard to do the “complete rest” thing but it will be worth it in the end when you come out stronger.

I swim a 27/26 sec 50 free & I want to go to rollins .... Any advice ? I'm a guy btw

Do you swim year round? Join a club team if you don’t. If you’re local, message me off anon and I can give you a couple good clubs. Lifting helps too. That’d be slow for a girl so you want to get it down (ideally) to 22. A great 50 free time for a D1 guy is around 19-20, but you can get by in division II with 21-22.
