Youth Performance Camp:
They Came, They Swam,
They Conquered!
Labor Day weekend saw 25 campers, 5 Olympians and one renown coach come together on the Olympic Training Center campus for 4 jam-packed days of swimming, dryland, nutrition, hiking, motivation, and so much more!
Campers learned tips and tricks to improve their swimming from 2016 Women's Olympic coach David Marsh and Olympians Jason Lezak, Cullen Jones, Kelsi Dahlia, Lindsay Mintenko, and Scott Usher all while making new friends and experiencing what it's like to be an Olympic-caliber athlete. A portion of each registration serves as a donation to the USA Swimming Foundation, and we thank both the campers and their families for their support.
