Find the right camp for you

Many camps are associated with a college swimming program. Student-athletes attending camps should use them as an opportunity to learn more about the program and what the coaching staff’s instruction methods are like.

Most women’s college swimming camps host campers in undergraduate dorms, which offers a taste of campus life. If current members of the college’s team are participating in the camps, potential recruits have the chance to ask them about their day-to-day life on the team.

Of course, families will have to consider factors like their budget for competitive swimming camps, how much time can be spent spent traveling (since most camps are at least a weeklong) and how far they’re willing to travel.

It’s important to be honest about your own capabilities as a swimmer. A more technically advanced swimmer will want to look for competitive camps where they’ll be challenged and truly benefit from coaches reviewing their underwater footage and technique. Underwater footage can allow a swimmer to see where errors could occur in their strokes.

How do I get invited to attend swim camps near me?

If you have your sights set on college swimming, it is important to get noticed sooner rather than later. In many cases, recruiters are looking at middle school students and high school freshmen as prospects for their university swim teams.

Most camps accept a wide range of athletes. The top-level camps are often by invitation only. By creating a profile with a national recruiting network like NCSA, you can post the information online that coaches and recruiters are looking for.

Race results, times, swimming videos and third-party evaluations within that profile provide you with a competitive edge. A strong and complete portfolio shows coaches and recruiters that the athlete is serious about swimming.
