Recruiting Round Table Session with Olympian and Former Yale Swim Coach Cristina Teuscher
November 9, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Cristina is a bit of an Ivy League legend, as she has demonstrated an ability to integrate the Ivy League education (maintaining an A-B average) with elite athletics while also still understanding what 99% of
her athletes faced every day with their commitments out of the pool. While at Columbia, she took 12 Ivy League Championships, 4 NCAA Championships, and a pair of Olympic medals (on the 800 free relay in 1996, and in the 200 IM in 2000) She coached Yale women for from 2011 – 2013. The first of our “recruiting” series, Cristina Teuscher has been on both ends of the negotiations as a swimmer and as coach. She will outline for YMCA athletes the basic components of recruiting. Cristina can answer questions regarding NCAA rules and as well as help athletes understand some of the differences between the different college leagues.
