Highlight of my summer!

Nike Swim Camps offer the positive instruction you want from a professional staff. My son has only been swimming for a year and I thought this would be a good opportunity for him to improve his strokes. He came away with not only better technique, but a desire to BE better in the sport. This passion was generated by the staff and coaches at the OU camp and we will definitely be returning - for the motivation and the training.
