Swim Camp of the Week: Mercersburg Academy

mercersburg-swim-camp-2021-updated

Mercersburg Swim Clinics are dedicated to improving your technique and helping you develop as a swimmer both inside and outside of the pool.  Mercersburg Academy’s storied aquatics program has produced over 30 Olympians and brings a tradition of excellence to their summer program.

The primary aim of Mercersburg Swim Clinics is to provide an experience that teaches swimmers the most innovative techniques while having fun. The philosophy is simple; swimmers do not just compile distance, but also work on improvements in starting, turning, and stroke techniques.

Mercersburg Swim Clinics participants stay in Mercersburg Academy’s state of the art residence halls that are recently renovated, air-conditioned with carpeted hallways, and have bathrooms on every hall with individual shower stalls.

The swimmer to staff ratio is around 5 to 1. Mercersburg Academy’s elite coaching staff and other successful coaches from colleges and club teams will instruct swimmers throughout the week. Counselors are generally current, and former college swimmers or Mercersburg Academy graduates with swimming experience.

Swimmers will train in the state-of-the-art Lloyd Aquatic Center, which includes an Olympic-size, 50-meter, 10-lane pool.
