Quality camp!

We are most impressed by the quality of the swim camp. Coach Nick and his team are not only excellent coaches, they are also caring and encouraging. Many swimmers hit a plateau in their training. It’s difficult to move forward without knowing the problem and how to correct it. Coach Nick and his staff spotted the areas our daughter needs to improve and helped her to correct them. We would like to thank Coach Nick and team for the excellent experience our daughter had.

Amazing!

Just attended the Westchester clinic at the Saw Mill Club. Coach Baker is amazing! Greatest coach I’ve ever met. Incredibly skilled at his craft and very humble. I’m currently reading his book. I wish there were more coaches like him.

Loved it!

My daughter attended the camp in Westchester over the long weekend and LOVED it. She said the work was hard but good and the instruction great, because “they show us what to do, not just tell us.” We will definitely be coming back!

Wonderful Experience!

Dear Coach Nick - I just wanted to thank you for such a wonderful camp experience. My daughter came home so excited with all the new things she learned at camp this week. She has been watching the video of her privates with Coach Tim and was eager to share all the feedback she received from Coach Dennis. She asked me to email you to tell you how "awesome" your camp was. I expected her to be a little tired and bored with swimming after so much training. Instead, she is asking to go swim laps tomorrow and she is begging to go to spring swim camp in April. Thanks again for the excellent coaching and positive environment for Casey.
