Ross Noble, who swims for YOTA (YMCA of the Triangle Area), was selected by the Scottish Swimming Association to represent Scotland on their 2020-2021 National Youth Squad. Ross is a dual citizen of the USA and the UK.

Team Scotland has a significant presence on the international stage, led by swimmers Duncan Scott, Hannah Miley and Mark Szaranek. Scotland competes independently in competitions such as the Commonwealth Games, but joins Team UK for the Olympics and World Championships.

About his selection, Ross said, “I’m proud to be Scottish, so I’m excited to represent Scotland and compete on an international level.”

His coach Jamie Bloom adds, “We’re delighted that Ross will have this opportunity. Ross constantly challenges himself in practice and continues to develop his technique and speed. We’re confident he’ll grow as a swimmer as he competes internationally, and we expect him to swim fast for Team Scotland.”

In addition to school, young people get a sense of normalcy with athletics and recreation. Not only have whole seasons of sports been wiped away, but sports camps have lost millions due to lack of participation and engagement. There’s a great fear in the youth sports industry that the ongoing lack of exercise and socialization will push young people farther into obesity and mental health issues.
