Camp session sold out? Get on the Wait Lists! To wait list for a session:
- When a session sells out, an online waiting list option will automatically be created. You may waitlist for the session(s) of your choice. There is no charge for registering on the wait lists. If you have a second session option, it may be a good idea to register for that session as well as the wait list. Should space open up in your waitlisted session, you can be moved from the other.
- You may also FAX or EMAIL us a completed registration form. No deposit required.
Mark the session(s) you would like to be wait listed for in order of preference. Write "Wait list" on the form, and how long you'd like to be on the list.
- If space becomes available, you will be contacted by E-MAIL to accept or decline the opening. Please be sure to provide an e-mail address that is checked frequently.
- There is no guarantee that space will become available, or when it will happen. Cancellations can happen months in advance or the day before a session begins. Every summer is different in how many people gain a spot in camp off the lists.
- If space does not become available, your e-mail address will be added to the e-mail distribution list for the following year's camp. If your e-mail changes, please notify the Camp. Online registration usually begins on December 1.
Male and female swimmers (ages 8-18) of any ability level are welcome. It is highly recommended, but not required, that swimmers have competitive experience prior to attending.

Training at the Longhorns Swim Camp focuses upon intensive long-course conditioning and thorough stroke instruction and analysis. Camp is divided into four challenging ability groups based on age and 100-yard freestyle times. One-hour daily sessions focus on swim-specific dryland and strength training exercises. Long course training varies from one to two hours daily depending on ability level. Two 90-minute daily sessions focus specifically on technique work. Stroke drills, as well as start and turn mechanics are included along with classroom sessions and underwater video analysis of each swimmer. A typical daily schedule may be downloaded from the Registration page and is included in the pre-registration packet. top

All pool sessions are held at the Lee and Joe Jamail Texas Swimming Center on The University of Texas at Austin campus. Ranked by Sports Illustrated (October, 2002) as the second fastest pool in the United States, it is one of the premier competitive aquatic facilities in the world. Since its completion in 1977, there have been numerous American and World records set in its waters, and is home to 18 NCAA national team champions. The competition pool is nine feet deep, 50 meters by 25 yards, and can create either eight 50-meter lanes or 22 25-yard lanes. Movable, power-operated bulkheads can create one of the fastest pools in the world. The diving pool is 18 feet deep, 25 yards by 25 meters, and can create 10 lanes. Visit their website at www.tsc.utexas.edu! top
Campers are housed two per room in Dobie Center, a privately owned high-rise dormitory within walking distance of the Jamail Texas Swimming Center and adjacent to the UT campus at 21st and Guadalupe. Each room has a private bath and refrigerator. Campers may bring snacks and drinks to keep in their rooms. Dobie also features an outdoor pool, sports courts, and game room for on-site recreation. The dining hall is adjacent to the main building and offers a variety of foods on an all-you-can-eat basis for a well-rounded, balanced diet. top
