Top 4 Reasons to Host Your Training Camp in Coronado

July 20, 2016

Continually voted one of the top tourist destinations in the United States, San Diego garners admiration from around the world. With miles of pristine beach line, year-long desirable weather, and incredible culinary feats, who wouldn’t want to visit this iconic California city? 

It’s exactly as all of the travel channels report: paradise. 

Nestled next to downtown San Diego, you’ll discover the gem of the region, Coronado Island. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, our little island is the most desirable venue for an elite athlete training camp.

Here are the top reasons why you’ll love hosting your next training camp in San Diego.


1) Weather

While you may have pushed off thoughts of the long, cold winter ahead, it’s just around the corner. Come January or February, you’ll be eager for that pure sunshine and warmth that the San Diego region celebrates year round. 

One of the biggest surprises will be our low humidity. During the winter months, it’s rare for humidity to reach above 50%. Unlike other popular destinations in Florida with sweltering humidity, our warm, summer-like days will be refreshing.


2) Facilities

We know the college would never approve of choosing a venue solely on perfect weather and proximity to golden beaches. Luckily, you won’t have to justify your Coronado selection. At BBMAC, we have top-of-the-line facilities perfect for college teams hosting a week or two-week training camp. 

Our world-class pool can accommodate both long and short courses. The adjacent smaller pool can also hold up to 6 lanes. The spacious locker rooms easily accommodate teams of all sizes. Additionally, we have a plethora of engaging cross training options including use of our weight room, leveraging the beach, or taking part in one of the many action sports on the island.

In fact, we are even hosting the US Open Water National Swim Team before they head to Rio for the 2016 Olympics.


3) Location Convenience 

Coronado will by far be the easiest location to navigate. On the island, teams will discover they are within walking distance to all of their desired locations. No matter which of our hotels you book, the pool will only be a short jaunt away. The same is true for the grocery store, the beach, and our popular dining locations.

Itching to explore neighboring San Diego? No car needed! Instead, head to downtown San Diego by ferry. Once you land either by the Convention Center or the Broadway Pier, the main attractions are only a short walk away.

Coaches continually hail our walkability as on the best cost saving aspects. The cost of transporting fifteen to thirty team members every day adds up. When you stay on the island, you can skip that daily commute.


4) Affordability

Training in paradise doesn’t mean you need to break the budget. In fact, we are an extremely budget-friendly option. That’s even before you get to the transportation savings. We partner with the hotels on the island to create competitive swim and stay packages. With San Diego International Airport continually opening up more flights, you’ll be pleasantly surprised on how affordable it can be to get to our neck of the woods.


Reserve Your Dates Today

Each year more teams from across the country discover the benefits of training in Coronado. We restrict the number of teams who can host camps at the same time to ensure that your team has the best experience possible. Last year several teams missed out on training in paradise because they went to book too late. 

Reserve your dates today! Before you know it, you’ll be soaking in our perfect weather, taking in our palm tree-lined streets, and marveling in our endless stretch of golden beach.
