Again in 2018 we are excited to provide campers access to their weight room and strength coaches, who works hand and hand with the USA Olympic Weight Coach in the Colorado Springs Olympic Training Center, to make sure our work on land fits what the swimmers need in the water! This is not to lift weights and bulk up, it’s to teach specific exercises and drills on land that the athletes can take back to their club coaches to incorporate into their daily dryland and more!  

While having three different sessions in the weight room, your athlete will also have three swim clinics under the coaching of Brad Tandy and/or Kevin Steel, Olympian and National Champion. They will coach on their expertise of sprint quality swimming and skills to enhance your racing abilities! Also provided will be a seminar on Nutrition by our very own Athletics Nutritionist to get valuable skills for a healthy athlete lifestyle to promote success.

Campers have the option to add the Extra Night Strength and Conditioning Speed Clinic to make your camp experience a 5 night, 6 day camp! This option also includes evening training sessions Monday-Wednesday. Price: $155

    Amazing Camp!

    June 18, 2018: Coaches were incredible and I came away with so many new skills and drills to bring back to my home team. The elite morning practices with the coaches were more challenging and rewarding. The weight training was amazing and I learned new stretches and how this type of training could improve my swimming. Lunch was also amazing and the food overall was delicious.

    Best week of our son's life!

    June 22, 2017: My son, just finished a week of camp in Tuscon. I felt compelled to write to you to share what an incredible experience it was for him. First, you need to know him a bit to understand why this was so great. He swims with a very small team that is falling apart and hasn't had a really qualified coach for over a year. Parents on deck is the closest we have had to a real coach. With that said, he and a couple of other kids remain determined to swim and compete. Our entire extended family wanted to honor and support his dedication to the sport by gifting him this experience at your camp. Boy, were we surprised at what he got to experience! Even signing up at the front door was fun as we were greeted by every single staff member. They were so gracious and welcoming. One coach saw our son's hesitation to leave us and he came over and warmly encouraged him. The week consisted of truly excellent practices, opportunities to hear from exceptional swimmers, eating with athletes, and once in a lifetime opportunities to be coached by the best. Our son came home and thanked us for the best week of his life!!

    Love coming back each summer!

    June 22, 2017: Camp was a great combination of stroke development work and fun (like the kick ball game). My daughter's favorite experiences were meeting a new, great friend in her roommate and meeting the wonderful staff. This was my daughter's third year at the swim camp and she can't wait to go back next year!

    Thanks!

    June 16, 2016: Our two years at swim camp have benefited both our son's swimming and his growth otherwise. And he's had plenty of fun, too. The staff is great and works to improve the program each year. We will be back next year and are excited to catch the next evolution. Thanks!

    I recommend this camp to anyone!

    June 16, 2016: The Nike Swim Camp was overall a great experience for me. I had a lot of fun and made a ton of new friends! The instructors were really kind and worked hard to make sure every swimmer had a great camp experience! Although I was expecting more individualized stroke technique, I still picked up a lot of good tips that will make me a better swimmer. I recommend this camp to anyone, no matter their ability level. I hope to return next year! -Camper

    Awesome!

    June 11, 2016: Everything at camp was awesome, the coaches were amazing and the atmosphere they created was very welcoming. The only thing I would change is a lower temperature outside, but that's not something you can control!  Thanks again for a great year!

    Just what we needed!

    June 18, 2015: Swimming was getting boring. 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 move to the next level of competitive swimming

    Loved it!

    June 11, 2015: What I love about this camp for my swimmer is it builds confidence; improves their abilities; and gives them a chance to swim with other campers with similar goals and see what it takes to be on a college team or even shoot for the Olympics.

    Great first experience!

    June 9, 2014: This was our granddaughter's first experience at a Nike Swim Camp. We felt it was a very professionally run camp. At first we were hesitant sending her off to the dorms, but the supervision was excellent and the camp was well run from start to finish. She made lots of friends and learned a lot about herself and her swimming. Thank you!

    — Gordon Family Grandparents

    Not just a swim camp!

    June 15, 2013: The Nike swim camp is not just a swim camp, it's more than that, you will meet new friends, meet new people you can compete against and help you become faster. The instructor are really helpful, if you need help with something on your stroke, they will find a way to help the best way possible!
