SSPC: Robert Howard Discusses Where Swimming Goes After ISL Season 2

November 25, 2020
We sat down with Robert Howard to discuss his ISL experience with the DC Trident in the Budapest Bubble. Howard talked through what the ISL is hoping to accomplish, namely bringing a level of excitement and professionalism to swimming. Howard explains this would require change if the ISL were to become a real model for professional swimming, change like moving away from your college coach to train with your team once you've exhausted your NCAA eligibility, much like football or basketball.
Now, who knows if the ISL will be around for another season and if so what it could evolve into, but it is certainly fun to dream of how a truly professional swimming league could change the whole landscape of what a pro swimmer lifestyle looks like.
