Camp Descriptions

Tiger Starts and Turns Camp
The most vital components of any race are starts and turns. With a focus on power, speed, and efficiency, the Tiger Starts and Turns Camp will help campers maximize their race potential. This popular camp is designed to enhance starts, turns, and breakouts for all four strokes and is open to all swimmers age 8-18. To enrich your experience and gain a competitive edge, add on the Tiger Technique Camp or Training Camp.

Tiger Technique Camp
Nothing beats good technique. Tiger Technique Camp empowers campers with the knowledge and skills of fundamental and advanced stroke technique for all four strokes. Campers will learn new skills as well as learn to perfect old skills under the direction of Mizzou coaching staff. With better efficiency gained through a focus on stroke technique, campers will take training and racing to the next level.

Tiger Training Camp
Train like a Tiger! Under the direction of the University of Missouri Head Swimming Coach, Greg Rhodenbaugh, our campers are treated like MU Tigers. Training focuses on intensive conditioning combined with stroke analysis and instruction. All sets are written by Coach Rhodenbaugh. This camp is limited to 40 campers to ensure a premium experience.

Mizzou Swim Camp offers a variety of different camps so that you can find the right experience for your swimmer. We have conveniently grouped our Tiger Starts and Turns Camp next to our Tiger Technique, and Tiger Training Camps so that you can take advantage of multiple camp experiences. Whether it's learning the details in our Tiger Starts and Turns camps, or the intense workouts in our Tiger Training camp, we have something for everyone ages 8-18.

It is highly recommended, but not required, that swimmers have some form of competitive experience (summer league, high school, YMCA, USA Swimming) prior to attending camp. Camps are not learn-to-swim programs.

Residential Camp: Campers are housed two per room in Hatch Hall, an air-conditioned, University of Missouri dormitory three blocks from the Mizzou Aquatic Center and one block from Plaza 900 dining hall.

Commuter Camp: Fees for commuter camp include camp instruction, t-shirt, swim cap, camp booklet, lunch and dinner, and use of the facility. Campers will NOT stay in the dorm, parents will drop-off at the start of the morning workout and pick-up their camper after the evening workout.

Daily Schedule

Campers swim once on the first and last day of camp and three times per day for all other days. All sessions last for 90 minutes. In addition to a morning, afternoon, and evening session there will be classroom sessions that include nutrition talks, viewing elite swimmer's videos, start/turn/stroke instruction, and goal setting. Generally, the evening session includes underwater videotaping, more stroke instruction and relays!

Facilities

All pool sessions are held at the Mizzou Aquatic Center on The University of Missouri campus. Ranked by Sports Illustrated (September, 2005) as the #1 Student Recreation Center in the United States. The Mizzou "Fast Water" pool it is one of the premier competitive aquatic facilities in the world. Since its completion in 2005, there have been multiple American and World records set in its waters. The competition pool is 8-8.5 feet deep, 50 meters by 25 yards, and can create either eight 50-meter lanes or twenty-two 25-yard lanes. The diving pool is 18 feet deep, 25 yards pool, and can create 8 lanes.

A couple of added features have made the experience even better for athletes, coaches and spectators. We have added Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection systems to both the 50M Pool and Diving Well. In concert with proper air handling and pool chemistry, the UV systems will provide better air and water quality in the Mizzou Aquatic Center, as well as a reduction in pool chemicals needed for proper maintenance.

Cell Phone Policy
Cell phones are permitted at camp. However, we caution sending them with your camper. If a camper becomes homesick, they can hinder more than help in the camp experience. Many campers will also call home first instead of receiving immediate help from a staff member, which lengthens the response time. Cell phones are ONLY to be used in the camper's room, and are not allowed during activities, or on walks to/from the pool. The Camp reserves the right to confiscate cell phones from campers who do not follow this policy. Please talk to your child about what he/she needs & doesn't need to call (or text) you about. If you feel a cell phone may be abused while at camp, please do not send one with your camper.

Supervision
Experienced and mature male and female coaches/counselors provide 24-hour supervision for all campers. In addition resident halls are supervised by University of Missouri personnel. An experienced athletic trainer is available during all workout sessions. All employees have passed a background check conducted by The University of Missouri Human Resources Department. Our camp is typically staffed by our very own University of Missouri Coaches and Student-Athletes!
