Testimonials from the 2013 USA Swimming Foundation Fantasy Camps

“This was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had in my swimming career. Unless you made the Olympic Team in the past, you are unlikely to experience a training camp like this. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a once in a lifetime experience.” – Patrick Weiss, 2013 Fantasy Camp attendee

“A true “Fantasy” experience. Just working on technique with Coach David Marsh for three days, arguably the top coach in the world right now, is priceless. Add to that meeting, casually hanging and swimming with, and learning from five legendary US Olympic champs in the US Olympic Training Center environment was beyond any expectations. I feel re-energized, faster and smarter in the pool already. Can’t wait until my next meet to see the actual results. Would do this again in a heartbeat.” – Alex Blavatnik, 2013 Fantasy Camp attendee
