It boasts two pools: the first is a 50 meter, 25 yard pool with 21 lanes and a full compliment of diving towers and one and three-meter boards, and the second is a 6-lane, 25 yard pool that is ideal for small group instruction.

The Nike Swim Camp at the University of Pittsburgh is open to any and all entrants.

Showed me how to be a faster swimmer!

I would like to say that this was my first time attending a swim camp and I can't wait to go back next year. The staff was awesome and I also met some new friends. This camp has helped me with my technique and showed me how to be a faster swimmer.  Thanks for a great summer!

My daughter worked very hard, had a lot of fun, made new friends, and became a faster swimmer. It was so much fun for her to work with college coaches and athletes.  We will be back next summer!

Strongly recommend.

This camp has helped me with my swimming in various ways. My stroke is better and it taught me some great exercises to strengthen the muscles I use when I swim. The coaching staff was also very nice and encouraging. I hope to return and strongly recommend it to any level of competitive swimmer.

I loved camp!

I LOVED CAMP! I will definitely go back next year to learn the material more thoroughly and become an even better swimmer that I have already become. Not only did I love the swimming but I also loved the activities we did after meals. The camp provided me the opportunity to make some great friends and have the experience of a lifetime. Thank you Nike Swim Camps!

Learn new skills.

The intensity was good. The underwater filming was really helpful. Got lots of great feedback from the coaches and they did a great job of presenting tips and techniques in a way that helped me identify some problem areas with my stroke technique. This really helped with my improvement.

All Around Impressed

My son Tyler has been a Pitt fan for several years. He loved getting to stay in the dorms and experience the campus. He came home very upbeat and ready to go back again. He and I were both impressed with the facilities.
