About Swim Camp

SwimTech Gainesville High Performance Swim Camp is the perfect opportunity for swimmers to take their skills and performance to the next level. What makes STG’s High Performance camp unique is the size of the camp and expertise of the coaches that will work with your swimmer EVERY session. Our head coaches, Kim Brackin & Steve Jungbluth, have years of experience coaching the most elite athletes in the world; they are committed to bring their knowledge and enthusiasm to each swimmer in the pool everyday. They will lead classroom and pool sessions, ensuring your swimmer learns the most current technical skills, racing strategies and feels valued by all our coaches. The mission is to balance skills – stroke technique, starts & turns – with building better training and racing skills.

We can ensure that each swimmer feels seen and heard because we are limiting our enrollment to 75 swimmers and have a staff of assistant coaches that haven’t just swum but have coached extensively with elite swimmers. These coaches will be able to provide personalized instruction and feedback tailored to your swimmer’s specific needs, helping them to fine-tune their technique and training regimen to maximize their performance and potential. The camp includes a variety of challenging workouts and training sessions specifically designed to help swimmers build strength, endurance, and speed while improving their mental toughness and focus.

What is camp without fun? Besides building new friendships with other swimmers from all over the country and world, in and outside of the pool, we conclude camp with a swim meet. The campers will be divided into teams; we’ll turn on the scoreboard and the music and let swimmers practice their new skills in a competitive but fun environment.

If you have an elite swimmer looking to take their performance to the next level, then the SwimTech Gainesville High Performance Swim Camp is the perfect opportunity. With a low athlete to coach ratio, top-notch coaching, and a challenging and engaging training program, this camp will help your swimmer reach new heights in their swimming career.

Camp Details

Camp FAQs

For the 2nd year of our High-Performance Swim Camp, athletes, coaches, and counselors will stay at the Holiday Inn, University Center, just across the street from the University of Florida. Located a few minutes away from the pool and the University of Florida Dining Hall. The Holiday Inn at University Center provides Camp with a ~3000 square foot conference center (game room) with multi-media options. We use this conference center for camp breakfast, afternoon activities, coaches talks, meetings, and games. The room also has a ping pong table, board games, and TVs on the walls that athletes can use to share their game consoles with other athletes or watch movies together. Campers are instructed to spend their free time in the game room rather than their sleeping rooms. Breakfast is served in the game room, allowing us to get to the pool quickly in the morning.

Our camp counselors (predominantly UF Student Athletes) have all been background checked and have taken the US Center for Safe Sport Training. Camp adheres to Safe Sport Policies for all adult and youth athlete contact. We also hold training sessions for our camp staff to ensure camp policies are enforced.

Campers are monitored continuously in the 2nd-floor conference center.
Sub-section of Camp policies:
*No males in female rooms and visa versa.

Camp staff enforces all camp policies. Male counselors supervise the male athlete floor, and female counselors supervise the female floor. Counselor doors are left open a large majority of the time to observe floor traffic. At 10:00 p.m., counselors check every room for the correct occupants and remind athletes who their on-duty counselor is and what room they are in if any issues arise during the lights-out period.
