Welcome to the Alabama Swim Camp


Dear Swimmers and Parents,



Alabama swim camp offers a unique and personalized experience for every swimmer, age 8-18. Each camper will receive individualized hands on coaching from a member of the Alabama swimming staff. Our internationally recognized staff is devoted to helping our campers improve their swimming techniques and performances. Campers will be exposed to the same facilities and amenities used by the varsity athletes at the University.


Each camper will receive individualized stroke instruction and personalized critiques of all four strokes, as well as starts and turns. All campers will be involved in classroom discussions and lectures involving swimming, nutrition and racing strategies that they can take with them throughout the rest of their swimming careers. Each camper will also be presented with a CD-ROM featuring the camper doing all 4 competitive strokes above and below water using the technolgocially advanced DARTFISH program. Campers may also receive a voice-over critique of their technique.


The Alabama swim camp is committed to making your child’s experience one they will remember for the rest of their lives. Alabama Swim Camps offer your child an inside look at the University of Alabama while in a very safe and controlled environment.
We hope to have you join us at the Alabama Swimming camps for a fun, informative, and productive week. If you have any questions feel free to contact us at bamaswimcamp@bellsouth.net and we look forward to meeting you at camp!


Coach Eric McIlquham
