It stokes the fire early around the idea of going away to college one day and of continuing their swimming careers at the next level.
San Rafael, CA (PRWEB) March 13, 2012
Lewis & Clark College, nestled on a quiet wooded hillside six miles from downtown Portland, is the perfect setting for the Nike Swim Camp in Oregon. Campers train daily in the Zehntbauer Swimming Pavilion, an indoor 25-yard x 8-lane pool equipped with a new Daktronics scoreboard and timing system.
Directing both sessions of camp is Chris Fantz, Lewis and Clark’s Head Swim Coach. "Hosting our Nike Swim Camps will be a highlight for us this summer,” says Coach Fantz. Currently in his fifth season, Coach Fantz was voted as the 2010 NWC Women’s Coach of the Year and Co-Coach of the Year for the 2011 season. Since Chris’ arrival in 2007, Pio swimmers have raced to 35 new school records and numerous NCAA provisional qualifying times.
“I love seeing youth swimmers on our campus,” states Coach Fantz. “It's a great opportunity for youth swimmers to come together in a swim learning environment, stay in college dorms, take meals in the dining hall and generally live life on a working college campus for a glorious summer week. It stokes the fire early around the idea of going away to college one day and of continuing their swimming careers at the next level."
Offering both overnight and day camp options our goal at the Nike Swim Camp at Lewis & Clark College is to stimulate a love for swimming by immersing you in the sport and giving you the kind of focused, intensive training essential to improvement. Over the course of camp your enthusiasm and self-confidence will grow along with your skills.
Nike Swim Camps are a great place for competitive swimmers to improve their stroke technique, starts and turns, and overall performance in the pool. Other locations in the Pacific Northwest include: WA - Seattle University; WA - Whitman College; and WA - Peak Performance in Seattle.
