“We are proud to be back on site at the USOPC Training Center here in Colorado,” said Mariejo Truex, Senior Director, Team Services, Coach and Athlete Development for USA Swimming. “These camps provide a priceless opportunity for athletes from across the United States to learn from top high-performance professionals and connect with one another, which will help their development both in and out of the water.”
Bolles School Sharks head coach Peter Verhoef will lead the girls team while Performance Aquatics head coach Kathleen Prindle is slated to lead the boys side. Swimmers will experience the routine of a National Team athlete during the three-day camp.
