The Neal Studd Swim Camp at Florida Gulf Coast University, is a camp that focuses on giving each swimmer age 7-18 the tools to improve their overall technique.  The camp focuses on, fitness, stroke technique, starts, turns, nutrition and mental training.  Each camper will recieve specific instruction on all 4 strokes, turns and starts.  There will be classroom sessions on these principles as well as talks on nutrition. We will also have champion swimmers come in to talk to our campers.  Our goal each session is to give your camper the tools to improve their swimming as well as give them a renewed love of the sport!  We love to hear from our campers each year, that they have a "renewed love of the sport" and/or that they "were so excited to drop time"
