Featured Camp: Pittsburgh Overnight Swimming Camps

Pittsburgh Overnight Swimming Camps are designed to inspire competitive swimmers to develop their strokes and training while swimming under the guidance and experience of some of the best college coaches in the country!

University of Pittsburgh Head Coach and 1996 Olympic Gold Medalist, John Hargis along with his Pittsburgh University coaching staff will instruct campers on the newest stroke and training techniques, and other topics such as preparing for college, sport nutrition and goal setting. Camp will also include videotaping and individual stroke analysis and instruction, nightly team building activities, and a low camper-to-staff ratio. Each camper will receive a Pittsburgh Swim Camp t-shirt and cap!
