At Nike Swim Camp we believe persistence
is more important than perfection

USSC is excited to be back at the University of Colorado Boulder this coming summer to host a Nike Swim Camp! Located only 30 minutes outside Denver with an elevation of 5,430, competitive swimmers from Colorado and beyond can train and improve their strokes at the CU Recreation Center, a 25 yard x 8 lane pool located in the middle of campus.

Overnight campers reside in campus housing located a short walk from the pool and eat all meals in the campus dining hall. 

The Nike Swim Camp at the University of Colorado, Boulder 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
  • Low camper to staff ratio and 24 hour supervision
  • Fun evening social activities

    Had fun!

    June 15, 2018: My child had a great time at the camp and certainly learned about nutrition and a few new drills to improve his strokes. I'm so glad he had fun and the camp does a great job incorporating games and play.

    Inspiring!

    June 15, 2018: Every night our daughter told us about the specific exercises or drills they learned related to that day's stroke and wanted to go to the neighborhood pool to practice them. She would get on the floor at home to demonstrate things to us. On the last day of camp, we went to the neighborhood pool where she was doing some of the drills! We know she picked up a lot from the daily sessions in the pool. She did mention something about improving her turns and some drills or exercises to help with back stroke. There was some sort of game in the deep end one day in the afternoon session. She said that was a great workout AND fun. Capture the Flag (Water Bottle) on Day One was a great way to kick things off. The daily videos, to my surprise, were something she really liked and paid attention to. Every day she recapped what that coach talked about. It was a nice complement to the activity. She loved the relay on Day 4. Even though she is skittish about competition right now, she has a competitive streak and a desire to be part of a team. I think that was a nice, fun experience for them. She LOVED the experience of lunch at the college, which is obviously not part of the swimming, but the experience as a younger camper on a college campus was inspiring to her.

    Friendly coaches!

    June 20, 2017: My daughter was nervous before we got there as we are from Pennsylvania and she wouldn't know anyone. The moment we walked into the courtyard of the dormitory we were greeted by the camp director and introduced to all the counselors and coaches. She made friends and had a blast. We are planning to come back again next year.

    Seconds off 50 free!

    June 15, 2017: My son just started swimming 9 months before the camp and he was 2 1/2 seconds of the State qualifying time for the 50 free. In a meet 2 weeks after the camp he had taken 3 seconds off his 50 and made the State cut. But in my son's words: "I am passing people I never passed before at practice!!!"

    Loved camp!

    June 12, 2017: My 15 year old daughter liked the dry land training and working on the butterfly technique. She also loved the food, staying for the overnights, and making new friends. She hopes to return for swim camp next year!

    Came home more confident!

    June 11, 2017: Our daughter came home more confident in her swimming and incredibly proud of her work and her effort. She learned about the importance of nutrition and about body positioning. She loved the drills, the evening activities and everything about the program. It was life changing!

    Felt so welcomed!

    June 10, 2017: My son said the highlight of camp was not only the instruction, but the coaches and friends made. The coaches did a great job of making sure everyone was included and welcomed.  His times also improved noticeable after camp!

    Had a blast!

    June 15, 2016: My daughter and son had a blast! They worked hard, but had time to make friends and relax. In addition to great instruction, they felt like part of the group and supported by coaches.  Such a good feling for a parent!
