I am Conner McBeth and as you probably guessed, I am a swimmer! I realized that I actually liked swimming when I swam the mile for fun at age 11 for a merit badge at Boy Scout camp and I didn’t die. It wasn’t pretty, but I finished. That lead me to join the YMCA swim team at age 12 and I haven’t stopped since.
My parents are a big influence on my everyday life and athletics. They help me push myself further than I think I can go. They have been on the sidelines at every meet cheering me on and they are my biggest support system.
My goals are to be a part of a college swim team and experience the next level of competition. I am very enthusiastic about being a member of a team. Being on a team, where everyone is trying to improve themselves and help other teammates reach their goals, is very rewarding. Your drive to perform better is increased with additional team support. I believe good sportsmanship is a key attribute of a team member and can help improve the general morale of the team.
I believe it is important to find a balance between academics, athletics, and life. I am learning time management skills in order to enable me to excel in all aspects of my life. My coaches say I am a very coachable athlete. I am always open to new techniques and I strive to implement the new techniques into practice. I am a fun loving person and I look forward to making the most of my collegiate years and pursuing my career aspirations.
Thank you for your consideration,
