If you’ve ever had the dream of training like an Olympic champion, here’s your chance.
USA Swimming Foundation is offering a chance to live, eat and train like an Olympian at the U.S. Olympic Training Complex Aquatic Center in Colorado Springs. The fantasy camps for ages 12-17 will be October 9-12 while the adult camp, 18 and over, is October 17-19.
Bremerton’s Nathan Adrian, a USA Swimming Foundation ambassador, will participate in the adult camp along with Rowdy Gaines and three-time Olympic champion Debbie Meyer. Serving as head coach is Bruce Gemmell, coach to Olympians Andrew Gemmell and Katie Ledecky. The youth camp will be attended by national team assistant coach Todd Schmitz, foundation ambassador and gold medalists Anthony Ervin, Mel Stewart and two-time Olympian Chloe Sutton.
The youth camp registration deadline is Sept. 3 and Sept. 10 for the adult camp. Participants will have the opportunity to enjoy workouts, workshops and interact with national team members.
