US Sports Camps Announces New Minnesota Nike Swim Camp
Nike Swim Camps, a division of US Sports Camps, the largest provider of sports camps in the world, has announced a new Minnesota swim camp location for summer 2019. USSC is proud to partner with Head Swim Coach Nathan Owens, to bring you the Maverick Nike Swim Camp, at Minnesota State University. The 300 acre campus is located above the Blue Earth River Valley, approximately 80 miles southwest of Minneapolis/St. Paul.
Campers train each day in Highland Pool, a six lane by 25 yard competition pool, that features stadium seating for spectators and ample deck space for training and events. Home of the Maverick Women's Swimming and Diving Team, Highland Pool was renovated in 2005.
“We are thrilled to work with Coach Owens at Minnesota State this summer,” says Paul Merrion, VP of Nike Swim Camps. “He is such a dedicated and knowledgeable coach and knows how to coach athletes at every skill level.”
This summer, Maverick Nike Swim Camp is offering three sessions of overnight camp (June 16-19, June 20-23 & August 4-7) with an extended day (7:00am-8:00pm) camp option. These four day overnight camps are an excellent format for swimmers to learn new drills, refine stroke technique, and focus on racing skills that will impact their swimming. Athletes will be challenged and engaged in a safe and supportive camp environment. Our experienced coaching staff strives to make the week a fun and memorable experience for everyone.
"We're looking forward to making 2019 our best summer yet! We're extremely lucky to invite back a staff that's been together for more than 10 years. The coaches are always searching for new ways to help athletes improve and make the week a great experience," says Coach Owens. "Our goals include trying to give everyone some new tools that they can take home and use every day in the pool. We also spend a lot of time talking about racing and everything that goes into competing. Discussion topics include the mindset, the preparation, and the mental aspects of readiness. There's a lot of value in the videotaping that we do of all four strokes and the personalized feedback that everyone receives in the classroom. It takes a lot of time during the week, but it is outstanding feedback for the athletes, along with the video footage, which they get to keep. We're looking forward to another fun and memorable camp experience!”
