Columbus, Ohio – The Ohio State swimming program is excited to announce that swimmers from the ages of 8-18 will have two opportunities to learn from one of the finest coaching staffs in America this summer. The first chance to learn from the Buckeyes will be June 10-14, with a second opportunity available the following week (June 17-21). Both swim camps will be hosted at McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion, one of the finest collegiate competition pools in the nation.
“Ohio State swimming camps are committed to coaching up the rising stars in our sport,” director of swimming and diving Bill Dorenkott said. “We will provide a camp experience that blends cutting-edge technique with a comprehensive focus on training, nutrition, sports psychology, strength and conditioning, as well as recovery skills.”
Commuters can attend the camp for a fee of $625, while a $750 residential offer is available too. Commuters will receive facility use, camp t-shirt and cap, while the residential campers will receive the aforementioned items along with room and board and all meals beginning with dinner on the first day and ending with breakfast on the last day.
There are two ways campers can receive discounts to their camp fee. If a group of eight or more attends, each of those swimmers will receive $75 off of their camp fee. For families that have multiple swimmers, after the full price camp fee is paid for the initial camper, each additional sibling from that family will receive a $100 discount. All discounts are only eligible if paperwork is mailed in, and the two discounts cannot be combined.
Campers will have an opportunity to receive individual instruction and analysis, a combination of in-water, dryland and strength and training exercises, and classroom work.
The camp will be led by Bill Dorenkott, Ohio State director of swimming and diving, and he will be joined by associate head coaches Jordan Wolfrum and Matt Bowe. Kyle Dunaway (director of operations) and numerous other assistant swimming coaches and student-athletes will be present as well. Campers are responsible for bringing all of their own gear (swimsuit, cap, goggles, kickboards, pull buoys, fins, towels, a water bottle, toiletries, bed linens and clothes).
“This will be my 30th year working swim camps for youth,” Dorenkott noted. “Each year is a wonderful opportunity to share our sport with future champions. Our staff is excited to provide a world-class experience for the swimmers who choose to attend the Ohio State swimming camp.”
