SportstarZ swimcamp is the largest and most professional organizer of swimming camps in Europe. Our goal at SportstarZ swimcamp is for every competition swimmer to enjoy a challenging and inspiring camp week. Signup and dare to swim faster.
SportstarZ is an initiative of several Dutch top swimmers and coaches, the best European swim venues. SportstarZ Swim Camp is perfect for every competitive swimmer from 8 to 18 years who is used to train several times a week.
SportstarZ stands for quality. That’s why we carefully select only the best locations for an unforgettable sports camp. Our sports sites belong to the countries’ best, preferably of Olympic size and always equipped with the newest (sports) techniques.
Our SportstarZ crew consists of professional supervisors, multiple experienced swimming stars and, through our Royal Dutch Swimming Federation well educated, enthusiastic swim coaches.
Athletes who participate in our swimcamp ‘s become better swimmers through a combination of technical and physical training. In our vision technique is the fundament of swimming. It’s important to start training the right swimming techniques at a young age. European swimming educations are of high standard. However, due to a lack of time and recourses these educations are not always able to get the best out of training. During our Summer Camps we focus on improving techniques on all swim strokes. During our 5-day spring- and autumn Specials we zoom in on starts, turns and streamlining.
Besides the summer swimcamp ‘s, there are also TalentZ weeks where the swimmers can get to know the life of a top-swimmer. The camps are divided on age and level.
We believe it’s important to enjoy your sports. Only when you have fun while swimming you can aim for success. That’s why, besides serious training, there’s enough time to make new swim friends and enjoy various recreational activities. SportstarZ is perfect for every competitive swimmer who aims to get the best out of themselves.
Eight to twelve years old, this period is essential to achieve maximum performance in the future! A good swimming technique is a foundation for every competitive swimmer, especially around these ages. The swimmers will be training all four swim stroke techniques, starts and turns. The accent will be on the right execution of these movements. Camps for the youngest participants are will be given in Dutch and English.
Club training for swimmers in the age of 12 till 18 years old will generally focus on training physical fitness and endurance. In summer time SportstarZ aims to refine their swimming technique but there’s also offered challenging dry land training, mental training and useful theory lessons. Every day there are 2 training sessions. Specific JuniorstarZ camps are Dutch and English spoken.
Are you that swimmer who we’ll find on national and international competition stages within a few years? Do you live and breath swimming, age 11 and up and hold at least a SportstarZ-TalentstarZ-limit* on one or more distances? In that case this TalentZ Camp will be definitely it for you! During all (water)sessions video equipment is available to analyse your techniques both under- and above water. In addition to the water training sessions you’ll also be coached by professional mental sports coach and receive mental training.
No limit yet? No problem then JuniorstarZ is definitely something for you.
