Expert advice for Swimmers, Triathletes, and Coaches

Which Swim Camp do I choose for my child?

With less than three months away from choosing a swim camp,here are some things  consider

  • Decide what you want to get out of your camp.
    • Are you mostly interested in stroke work?
    • Do you want the stroke work balanced with training time?
    • Do you mostly want a social camp where your child will have fun?
    • Is there a college campus you want your child to see?
  • Talk to other families that sent their children to camps.
    • Did they have a good experience?
    • Did it benefit their swimmer?
    • Would they send their swimmer there again?
  • Interview the camp staff over the phone or over email.
    • What is their philosophy?
    • Can they answer your questions and concerns?
    • Find out who will coach your athlete.
  • Talk to your club coach.
    • If you know you want your child to attend a camp, ask your coach if there is a best time during the summer for your child to go.
    • Has he or she had good experiences with swimmers attending certain camps?
    • Or bad experiences with certain camps?
    • A willing coach will look at the summer schedule and help find a good week or two.
