Just What We Needed!

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 improve.

Intimate Experience

The program had a low camper to coach ratio to provide great feedback to the swimmers! We will be back next summer.

Thoroughly Enjoyed Camp

My boys thoroughly enjoyed this camp! They swim on a year round team. This camp provided them with some great feedback on each of their strokes and they have continued to work on improving them since they left camp. I would highly recommend this camp to anyone who has a swimmer!
