I am extremely excited to partner with Nike and US Sports Camps for the Western State Swim Camps for 2015.

Geoff Hanson is no stranger to success in the water, as a swimmer or coach, and now takes his first head coaching assignment at Western State Colorado University. In his first season as the women's swimming and diving coach, The Mountaineers finished sixth at the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Championships, breaking 13 school records in the process.

Hanson was a four-year letter winner and two-time team captain at Arizona. He was a 1996 NCAA All-American and a Pac-10 Conference finalist for four years. Hanson also was a finalist at the U.S. Nationals.

Hanson previously coached at the University of Arizona for two years as the head assistant coach. He work primarily with Arizona's distance freestyle and medley swimmers while also handling recruiting for the men's team. Before Arizona, Hanson coached for 12 seasons at the University of Wisconsin in the assistant head coach capacity.

He is excited to offer his first Nike Swim Camps at Western State this summer. "I am extremely excited to partner with Nike and US Sports Camps for the Western State Swim Camps for 2015. Having coached numerous US and international Olympians, I realize the tremendous benefit of altitude training for swimmers," states Western State Colorado University Head Coach, Geoff Hanson. "The Nike Swim Camp at Western State Colorado University provides campers with training and instruction in the highest altitude collegiate pool in the United States. The wonderful summer climate in Gunnison, CO also allows us to incorporate dry land training outdoors without baking in the summer heat that much of the country experiences in June and July. It's a perfect place to come for camp then stay in town for the July 4th weekend after our first camp, or the world famous Cattlemen's Days rodeo following our second camp."

This summer, the Nike Swim Camps are scheduled for June 28-July 2 and July 6-10 for boys and girls ages 9-18. The Western State Colorado University Aquatic Center is located in the Paul Wright Gym. Campers will train each day in the highest collegiate pool in the nation, also home to Western’s Swimming and Diving Team. The quaint mountain town of Gunnison is safe, relaxing and offers an amazing location for a Nike Swim Camp. The campus, at an altitude of 7,700 feet, sits nestled among the Colorado Rocky Mountains, creating a beautiful and inspiring locale. For more information visit http://www.ussportscamps.com/swim.
