Featured Camp: Maverick Nike Swim Camps

Maverick Nike Swim Camp

Don’t just count laps.  Make every lap count!  Join Coach Nathan Owens and his experienced staff for an excellent training camp that will help take your swimming to the next level.  Participants will spend time learning how to improve all four strokes and will benefit from small group and one-on-one video analysis.  Practice sessions will be focused on teaching and sharpening racing skills that will impact performance.  Practices and classroom meetings will also include mindful attention to racing starts, turns, and under waters.  Athletes will be challenged and engaged in a safe and supportive camp environment.  Our experienced coaching staff strives to make the week a fun and memorable experience for everyone.

A message from Coach Owens about camp:
“We’re looking forward to making 2019 our best summer yet! We’re extremely lucky to invite back a staff that’s been together for more than 10 years.  The coaches are always searching for new ways to help athletes improve and make the week a great experience. Our goals include trying to give everyone some new tools that they can take home and use everyday in the pool. We also spend a lot of time talking about racing and everything that goes into competing. Discussion topics include the mindset, the preparation, and the mental aspects of readiness. There’s also a huge value in the video taping that we do of all the strokes and the personalized feedback that everyone receives in the classroom. It takes a lot of time during the week, but it’s outstanding feedback for the swimmers to go along with the video footage, which they get to keep. We’re looking to another fun and memorable camp experience!”
