DART at Sac is beyond proud of senior swimmer Emma Peters who has always contributed so much to not only the team but to the whole LSC of Sierra Nevada. Emma is currently one of the 4 athlete representatives of SNS and a leading voice for the next generation of USA swimming athletes! Take a look at some of the things Emma does for her role: “Hello, my name is Emma Peters and I am an Athlete Representative of Sierra Nevada Swimming. Almost 2 years ago I was selected to be one of the 4 athlete reps to act as the voice of all of the USA swimmers in Northern California. The main job of a representative is to participate in monthly meetings, making sure new ideas and motions are in the athletes’ best interests. In addition, we attended the annual United States Aquatic Sports Convention for the last 2 years to learn all about legislation and leadership in USA Swimming. In 2018 we went to Jacksonville, Florida for the convention and in 2019 to St. Louis, Missouri. A personal role that I play for our LSC (Local Swimming Community) is that I run and operate the Sierra Nevada Swimming Instagram page. (@snswimming) My favorite part of being on our LSC’s board is getting to learn about and participate in all of the behind the scene things that make USA swimming run smoothly at a national and local level. In June, all 4 of us will retire from our positions and pass the torch onto the next representatives. As sad as I am to leave, I am grateful for the opportunity I have had and can’t wait to see what the future of USA swimming holds!”
