The Carolina Swim Camp, Traditional Technique Camp, focuses on developing and enhancing the training and racing skills of competitive swimmers. Each day will focus on one of the four competitive swimming strokes with a technique session in the morning and a workout/technique session in the afternoon. For those intersted in extra training, an additional third (optional) swimming session is available each early morning. In addition, our camp will focus on the technical skills needed for starts, turns and relay exchanges.
Each camper is linked with campers of similar ability based on a 100-yard times in all four strokes. Each group will be taught and practice skills appropriate for that ability. We do our best to have a 10:1 camper to coach ratio or less, with highly energetic coaches from the UNC staff and great coaches from around the United States.
These camps are for 8 - 18 year olds and are limited to 115 campers.
