    Camp Director Bryan Christiansen

    Coach Bryan spent the 2021-22 season recruiting for the new swim team that started at Quincy in 2022. Quincy had one of the best first years any program has ever had.

Every athlete had at least one best time at the GLVC Championships. The men's team also finished with the second-highest GPA in all of DII. Coach Bryan is committed to a fun environment along with competitive excellence. Coach Bryan has worked Nike Swim Camps at Nazareth College for the past four years and before that worked Hartwick College's camp for two years.
