Legendary swim coach and founder of Total Performance Sports Camps (TPSC), Jim Steen, led his Kenyon College swimming and diving teams to an amazing 54 NCAA titles in 37 years while coaching numerous NCAA Champions, hundreds of All-Americans, and several Olympians. He is the most successful coach in NCAA history for any sport and any division. Since 1980, his formula for success and innovative ideas have been incorporated into a camp program that has seen over 10,000 participants from over 40 states and even 5 countries!
The cornerstone of the Total Performance Sports Camps is the dedication to the individual. We place a high level of importance on technique and training, of which can accommodate both the novice to highly trained athletes. Our programs can help inspire participants to reach new heights and achieve their own level of, "total performance." In addition, particular focus is also spent on providing world-class instruction by world-renowned coaches and specialists in smaller, intimate learning environments, to ensure athletes will have a performance-changing camp experience that they will carry with them forever. At TPSC, coaches will also live with the campers in the dorms, creating greater opportunity for mentoring both on and off the fields of play.
Located on two beautiful small-residential college campuses at Kenyon College (Ohio) and Calvin College (Michigan), TPSC campers will train at athletic facilities that will rival anywhere. At Kenyon, the Kenyon Athletic Center is home to the legendary Kenyon College championship swimming teams and is an award-winning 263,000 sq. ft. masterpiece featuring an Olympic-sized 50m pool, two basketball courts, 200m indoor track, movie theater and more.
At Calvin, campers will train in the Spoelhof Fieldhouse Complex, a 362,000 sq. ft. recreational facility featuring a 5,000-seat arena, Olympic-sized 50m pool, indoor tennis courts, 200m indoor track, health center and much more. These facilities, matched with the beautiful rural campus settings make for a first-rate experience you can't miss!
Now in our 33rd year of operation, Total Performance Sports Camps is also expanding to be more than just our historically successful swim camps.
