Campers and coaches live
together on the beautiful Canterbury School campus. This experience helps
swimmers grow socially as well as mentally and physically. Our
instruction begins by concentrating on building efficient
swimmers. Throughout the week, campers participate in an
extensive program of swimming fitness, quality water time, daily
stints in the weight room for older campers, dry land
conditioning and strength training lectures from great athletes
and professional coaches. There is a plan of organized
recreation each evening.
The goal is to instill in
every athlete the idea that discipline and hard work not only
pay off but can be great fun. Campers are given the opportunity
to excel because they take home all of the necessary knowledge
needed to be the best they can possibly be. The ultimate
reward to any swimmer is a PERSONAL BEST (P.B.). This is our
goal, and every year we receive hundreds of e-mails from our
campers telling us about their new P.B.’s.
Our staff is carefully
chosen for their qualities of experience: maturity, energy,
enthusiasm, and as Coach Good states, “dedicated to personal
bests in their personal life as well as their athletic lives.”
All U. S. Sports Camps
coaches eat with the campers, live in the camper’s dorms,
participate in the evening recreation and are a part of camper’s
lives for 24 hours a day. Our coaches are all outstanding
athletes and experienced teaching professionals.
Swimming is a part of their
everyday lives. Every instructor is given instruction in our
technique of teaching and training competitive swimmers. Our
high standards of selection and training have brought together
a hard working staff “second to none” in our field.
