Gators Camps and Clinics Gator Swim Camp
The University of Florida Gator Swim Camp is a developmental camp designed to teach swimmers proper technique and provide quality training to swimmers of ALL abilities ages eight and older. The camp emphasizes technical skills, training habits, and mental preparation as well as the importance of health and fitness in a structured, fun, and enthusiastic Gator environment.
Each camper will receive specific, hands-on instruction for each of the four strokes, starts and turns. There will also be lectures on each of the four strokes, nutrition, and special talks given by coaches and champion swimmers! At the end of the week, campers will be emailed a link to view a video of their strokes.
Campers will be fully supervised at all times by counselors. Activities will take place on the beautiful campus of the University of Florida, the home of the 2010 Women's Swimming & Diving National Champions and 2013 Men’s SEC Champions! The campers will train in Florida’s state-of-the-art athletic facilities where they will have the opportunity to see some of the country’s top athletes in various sports.
Campers must have completed the 8th grade to be considered a resident camper. Any camper who has not completed the 8th grade must be a day camper. All day campers must be signed in and out each day by a parent or someone authorized by the camper’s parent.
Resident campers stay at the University of Florida and will be housed in our air-conditioned dorms located on campus and three meals will be provided each day. Day campers will be provided with lunch only.
