Registration Now Open for Summer Swim Camp

The College of the Canyons swim & dive program invites swimmers ages 8 to 18 to participate in the 2019 COC Swim Camp, with two sessions running this summer.

The camp is open to swimmers who can perform all four competitive strokes (freestyle, back, breast, butterfly) in a group workout environment. Sessions will be led by COC swim & dive head coach Sean Kakumu, his staff of assistant coaches, and student-athletes from the college's record-setting swim & dive program.

Each four-day camp session will provide participants with an opportunity to learn new techniques, strengthen current skills, and meet new friends. The philosophy of the camp is to create a fun-filled atmosphere that promotes the development of the total swimmer.

Session 1 is open to children ages 8 to 14 and will introduce the fundamentals necessary for future swim competition and/or a lifetime of recreational swimming.

Session 2 is open to high school swimmers ages 15 to 18 and will reinforce fundamentals while emphasizing performance, speed and race strategy, with the goal of pushing the swimmer to the next level of competition.

Taking grade and age into account, each camper will be evaluated on the first day of camp and placed into a group that will allow them to maximize their potential to improve.

Both sessions will involve two workouts a day plus classroom instruction. Session 2 will feature more intense workouts. Each session will conclude with an intra-squad meet where swimmers can apply the skills they have learned.

The swim camp is scheduled:

  • Session 1 – 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Thursday, June 17 to 20
  • Session 2 – 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Thursday, June 24 to 27

All meetings will take place in the college's West P.E. natatorium, adjacent to the baseball field at the Valencia campus.

A $175-per-player registration fee applies to each session. Space is limited.

Campers who register prior to the May 26 early registration date will save $25 per camper (registration must be received by 5 p.m. Sunday, May 26).

Families with more than one camper can receive a discount of $25 for each additional child who registers by entering the promo code "Cougar2" at registration checkout.

All campers will receive a camp T-shirt, as well as a camp photo at the end of each weekly session.

Swimmers are encouraged to bring refillable water bottles and snacks/light lunch every day.

All proceeds directly support the swim & dive program.
