American College Connection - College Recruiting :: Swimming, 21 Sept 2014 [cached]
A quote from Rick Paine, founder, "I believed in my heart that if we developed a company that genuinely cared about the kids, the parents and the college coaches we would have something we could all be proud of."
Before we accept a family into our program the student-athlete must go through an extensive qualification process designed to ensure that the kids can swim in college and will be academically successful. Because of this personal approach we unfortunately have to limit the number of families that we can work with at any given time.
From Rick Paine, "It is difficult to get a call from a desperate senior who is not being recruited and yet has the times and grades to swim in college and we have to tell them that we are full and don't have any openings.
