View Full Version : "Elite" USMS Swim Camps: More of them!

Think Masters Swimmers all over the country might benefit by an "elite" camp in four "quarters" of the country, each year, if possible. Use the very fine coaches that are all over this country. Think that you would have plenty of swimmers...and coaches, respond, especially in that down time of August, when many people take vacations, take breaks, pools are not fully up because school is not in session yet. What do you think, swimmers?

I'd be more tempted to attend if the camp was closer to home. On the other hand, there's only one Dr. G. By splitting the camps up you might be diluting the "brain trust" somewhat.

What does the term "elite" mean? I interpret the word as meaning such camps would cater to elite swimmers (people more likely to have top ten times, for instance). If not, please explain. What would the goals of such a camp be?
