Just what we needed!

Swimming was getting boring. Our NIKE camp experience was just what we needed to refocus on why we like to swim, and provided good stroke feedback to help us move to the next level of competitive swimming

Top notch!

Nike Swim Camp year after year provides top notch instructors and exciting guest swimmers (Olympic and World champions). The young swimmers are challenged and have an amazing opportunity to learn. Underwater video of technique with coaches' tips is great!

Loved it!

What I love about this camp for my swimmer is it builds confidence; improves their abilities; and gives them a chance to swim with other campers with similiar goals and see what it takes to be on a college team or even shoot for the olympics.

Very impressed!

I brought my daughter from Perú along with two friends to the Nike Swim Camp at the University of Arizona. They loved the experience and meeting the coaches. They keep talking about it to this day and I am sure we will repeat it again soon.

This camp is very fun!!! You get to work on each of your strokes and I feel that I really improved on each one. The food is great, and you get to meet a lot of new people. I thought the camp was awesome.

What a great opportunity for my club swimmer - she wants to attend U of A for college, so it is a fantastic introduction to the University, the next level of swimming, and an overall unique summer experience.

Great first experience!

This was our granddaughtr's first experience at a Nike Swim Camp. We felt it was a very professionally run camp. At first we were hesitant sending her off to the dorms, but the supervision was excellent and the camp was well run from start to finish. She made lots of friends and learned a lot about herself and her swimming. Thank you!
