2017 Competitive Swim: Full Day Camp

Swimmers will have two water workouts daily plus dryland activities, classroom videos and discussion sessions.

Each day concentrates on a different stroke in the morning session. A classroom session with video and discussion as well as the water session works on teaching and correcting stroke techniques. Each swimmer is video critiqued each day on that stroke.

Afternoon water sessions are broken into small group stations to allow each swimmer to choose any specific areas they wish to focus on (stroke work on any of the four strokes as well as starts and turns).

Our camp is a teaching camp
Using stroke videos, lectures and discussion we show how elite swimmers use the five keys when they swim their races.

Through daily work with innovative drills and stroke practice under the direction of their lane coach each swimmer will learn how to include these same keys in their swimming.

Each swimmer in the Full Day Camp will have their stroke videoed and evaluated by one of our coaches.
