Who will be instructing?
The camp is directed by George Young, Director of competitive Swimming for the Sea Gulls, who was selected Coach of the Year in 1993-94, 1994-95, 2006-2007 & 2016-2017 by USA Swimming - the governing body that monitors amateur swimming in the United States. Several talented coaches and swimmers staff the camp along with Coach Young. The camp, designed by Coach Young and Dr. Richard Cone of USC, is designed for swimmers who want the opportunity to learn more swimming skills without the more extended conditioning required of the Sea Gulls.
SGSG wishes everyone the best of luck at tryouts!
