Download Flyer
Early Bird Special in Effect

The Etobicoke Swim Club is pleased to present its Summer Swim Camp offered to all competitive swimmers between the ages of 8 – 16. The Etobicoke Swim Club is one of Canada’s most successful swim clubs. Directed by Head Coach Kevin Thorburn (a member of the 1996, 2012, and 2016 Olympic Coaching Staff), the club has always placed great value on stroke technique. In the 2008-2009 Swim Season, Etobicoke produced a record breaking year achieving 125 Ontario Records, 75 National Age Group Records, 7 Senior Canadian Records and 1 World Record. In the 2015-2016 Season, ESWIM placed 1 swimmer on the Canadian Olympic Team, 2 swimmers on the World SC Championship Team, and 2 swimmers on the Junior Pan Pacific Team.

Beginning at 8:45 am the primary focus of the camp is to improve overall technique in all four competitive strokes. This will be done in two water practices daily as well as video analysis during the day. On top of the technical aspects the swimmers will also take part in goal setting, dryland and nutritional seminars as well as fun and games, all ending at 5:00pm.

All practices and seminars will be run out of the Etobicoke Olympium, located in Centennial Park. The Olympium is a world-class 50-meter pool that provides a great stage for the camp. World Records have been set in the pool, and the Olympium was host to the 2004 Canadian Olympic Trials in addition to the Canadian Grand Prix - Canada Cup. Centennial Park provides the camp with plenty of room for games and dryland activities.

THE TECHNICAL:

We feel that the technical aspects of stroke mechanics must come before anything else. Swimmers are instructed in proper stroke techniques, starts and turns by our coaching staff and counselors. Coaches may use stroke technique films and classroom activities to help instruct the participating swimmers.

THE MENTAL:

ESWIM Swim Camps are dedicated to helping each swimmer develop a positive mental attitude. We help swimmers try harder to do their very best and develop their talents. They understand that what they get out of swimming is in direct proportion to what they put into it. Classroom sessions focusing on mental preparation will help each camper develop the ability to prepare for meets and training sessions.

THE SOCIAL:

Learning to get along with others is a must for every successful swimmer today. Training, competing and playing with a close group of swimmers and coaches will contribute greatly to developing the total swimmer. Friendships made at ESWIM Camps last a lifetime. Our campers all become a part of one big swim camp family. We want our campers to wear a smile while they are here and when they leave.
