2022 Featured Swim Camp: Longhorns Swim Camp

Swim Camp 22 Texas

The Longhorn Swim camp is held in the world-renown Jamail Texas Swimming Center on the University of Texas at Austin campus. Boasting 45 years of exceptional instruction, the program is spearheaded by Texas head coaches Eddie Reese and Carol Capitani. Home to 24 national championship teams, it is considered one of the finest aquatic venues in the world. Don’t forget to check out the new Eddie Reese Outdoor Pool.

The Jamail Texas Swimming Center includes a 50-meter by 25-yard pool, and 25-yard by 25-meter pool. Ranked by Sports Illustrated in 2002 as the second-fastest pool in the United States, it is one of the premier competitive aquatic facilities in the world. Since its completion in 1977, there have been numerous American and World records set between those lane lines.

“The 2022 Longhorns Swim Camp is proud to feature multiple Olympians, American record holders, and NCAA champions on staff. We welcome Olympians Ian Crocker, Colleen Lanne’-Cox, Whitney Hedgepath, American record holder Will Licon, and 2019 NCAA champion/Team USA World University Games member John Shebat! Josh Davis, three-time Olympic gold medalist, returns for his 23rd year with the program. Josh coaches the Friday morning session.  Please see the STAFF page for more information on our amazing staff!”

Training at the Longhorns Swim Camp focuses on intensive long-course conditioning and thorough stroke instruction and analysis. The program is divided into four challenging ability groups based on age and 100-yard freestyle times. One-hour daily sessions focus on swim-specific dryland and strength training exercises. Long course training varies from one to two hours daily depending on ability level. Two 90-minute daily sessions focus specifically on technique work. Stroke drills, as well as start and turn mechanics, are included along with classroom sessions and underwater video analysis of each swimmer. A typical daily schedule may be downloaded from the Registration page and is included in the camp Information Packet.

Longhorn Swim Camp is also hosting a technique clinic on Sunday, April 10.
