To enhance the progress of each participant, the camp will be divided into two groups. Division I will be for the novice level campers, and Division II will be for the advanced campers. Swimmers will be placed into divisions by the coaches during tryout. The coaching staff cannot guarantee that all family members or friends will be in the same division.

The cost for all three session is $130.00 per swimmer and will apply only if you pay in full on Jun 5th . Checks may be made payable to "GYInstitute". Registration will take place on the first day of each session. If there is any opening, we may have additional try outs on the first day of each session. All completed paperwork and payment must be received by the first day of the session.

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 and 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. Campers will also have the opportunity to compete in an age-group swim meet. Susan Lai will be primary coach for the 2018 camps.

SGSG wishes everyone the best of luck on trying out!
