AT NIKE SWIM CAMP

Come join us this summer 2019 at the Nike Swim Camp at Nazareth College, located in Western New York State, in Monroe County, in a charming suburb of Rochester. This camp offers competitive swimmers a challenging yet fun week of swim technique and training. Our goal is to bring out the very best in every swimmer we coach.

Home to Nazareth College’s Men's and Women's Swimming teams, campers receive instruction and work on their stroke technique in the Shults Center Pool, a 25-yard x 6 lane pool with a diving well and one meter board.

This camp is open to any and all entrants. For your safety and benefit, we recommend you have competitive swimming experience (e.g. U.S.S. age group, national qualifiers, high school swimmers, or summer league swimmers) and can swim at least 50 meters in all four competitive strokes: fly, back, breast and freestyle.

Highlights Include
  • Stroke technique refinement for competitive swimming
  • Instruction takes place each day in the Shults Center
  • Low camper to staff ratio
  • Small group and individual stroke analysis/instruction
  • Fun evening social activities
  • Every camper receives a Nike Camp T-shirt and Nike Swim Cap
  • Every camper is eligible to receive merit-based prizes during camp

TECHNIQUE CAMP: This camp is geared towards swimmers ages 9-18 with the goals of perfecting stroke mechanics and increasing overall knowledge of the sport. Campers will receive instruction on each of the four major strokes and work on the skill aspects (starts, turns, finishes) of each. Daily videos and lectures will supplement the drill instruction to enhance the athletes’ knowledge of key parts of swimming such as nutrition, goal setting, stretching, and race preparation. The camp will include both instruction as well as fun activities each night.

INTENSIVE CAMP: This camp, for those ages 11-18, is designed for the highly competitive swimmer that wants a combination of technique/lectures and also at least one good workout a day. These campers will have a two hour workout built into the format of the camp to ensure a high level of physical fitness throughout the week. The lectures and videos of this camp are more focused on training the elite swimmer and how to develop an athlete to compete at the highest levels. This camp will also include fun activities each day/night.

A detailed camper registration packet containing check-in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers prior to camp. Our health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp.

    Amazing Coaches

    July 18, 2018: My daughter thought the coaches were amazing...kind and fun, but also gave a lot of great constructive feedback. Really liked getting information on what it's like to swim at the college level. She received great individualized instruction.

    Great experience!

    July 17, 2017: Overall it was a great experience for my daughter and she enjoyed the camp and learned a lot. The nutrition part was very eye opening for her as we have told her she needs to eat more and drink more as she gets headaches. It was awesome to see the underwater video of her swimming as well.

    Highly recommend!

    July 17, 2017: My daughter was one of the younger campers being only 8 at the time, however she came home with smiles, and was so excited to show us what she learned at camp, and what adjustments she made to her strokes to help her swim better. Overall I think camp definitely helped, her first meet after camp she dropped 10 seconds of her 200 Free and 2 on her 100 free and she final hit her LSC Niagara Cut times for Long Course! Overall I would highly recommend this camp to other swim parents who are looking for ways to help their child improve.

    Best decision!

    July 14, 2017: My daughter dropped in all her times at Championships which were only 10 days after the camp, it was the best decision to send her before not after!
