This is a combined Technical and Training Camp.

The Carolina Swim Camp, Overnight & Day Week Camp, focuses on training swimmers energy systems for success in summer swimming as well as developing and enhancing the training and racing skills of competitive swimmers.  This is a combined technique and training camp which will focus on each of the four strokes plus underwater kicking (or the 5th stroke).  Each morning will focus on one of the four competitive swimming strokes with an emphasis on technique as well as a specific goal of training (or workout) for that session.  Each afternoon will be broken up into 3 training groups, Sprint, Middle Distance IM, & Distance.  Each group will focus on techniques and racing strategies specific for these very different events. Groups will train twice per day for two hours each session.  In addition, campers will have the opportunity to do dryland training sessions, receive take home materials from our nutritionist and weight room coaches (who will provide each camper with a warm up and warm down routine).

Each camper is grouped with campers of similar age and ability.  Each group will receive instruction and practice skills appropriate for that ability.  We do our best to have a 10:1 camper to coach ratio, with highly energetic coaches from the UNC Staff and great coaches from around the United States.

General meters/yards for each workout will consist of:  Distance 5,000-7,000 meters/yards, Middle Distance 4,000-6,000 meters/yards, and Sprint 3,000-4,000 meters/yards.

What’s Included:
Each camper will receive a Carolina Swim Camp T-Shirt, Carolina Swim Camp Latex swim cap, Carolina Swim Cap Lanyard, Gatorade Water Bottle. Technique Campers will be filmed and will be provided feedback from a UNC Swim Coach.

Airport Shuttle:
Our airport fee is for any camper that needs to be picked up from the airport and/or taken to the airport after camp is over. You must provide your child's flight itinerary as well. The fee for each trip is $25.00, for a round trip it would $50.

 

Camps are open to any and all entrants, limited only by number, age and grade.
