A Welcome from Coach Jay
Dear Friends, Pine Crest Swim Camp is a well-known swimming program in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida that offers training to swimmers to prepare the athlete for competition in their home swimming meets.
All swimmers dream of being an Olympian and one of the special things about being at the Olympics is living in the Olympic Village and meeting people from all over the world. At Pine Crest Swim Camp the swimmers meet people from New York, Virginia, Texas, North Carolina, Florida, Arizona, and all parts of the USA, while also meeting swimmers from Austria, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, England, France, Hong Kong, Italy, Poland, Russia, Spain, Tunisia, and Venezuela. Everyday at swim camp is like living in an Olympic Village where all the swimmers sleep in the same quarters, eat in the same dinning hall, train at the same pool, and take special trips together to see other points of interest. By the end of their swim camp stay, the swimmers have new friends from all over the world.
Another great feature about Pine Crest Swim Camp is that the swimmers experience new training sets, a new training environment, and new training partners, which helps to make each day exciting while they are at swim camp. The swimmers go home to their own program more excited about the sport and eager to share with their teammates at home their new enthusiasm for swimming.
When you come to Pine Crest Swim Camp, you are instantly immersed in a swimming environment. Each camper is matched with a college-aged counselor who either has competed or is still competing in our sport. Our staff has included Olympic qualifiers, NCAA All-Americans, Olympic Trial qualifiers, and international-level competitors. Beyond keeping you safe, our counselors often become career-long role models and supporters of your swimming even after your swim camp experience.
We are looking forward to working with you this summer. Please review the 2012 swim camp brochure.
Yours in swimming, Jay Fitzgerald Swim Camp Director
