Camp Description
 
The Competitive Stroke Camp is a balanced curriculum built around four principles - swimming efficiently, training effectively, working as a team and having fun.
 

The cornerstone of the Competitive Stroke Camp's success is a dedication to helping campers improve each of the four strokes when it comes to technique, training and race strategy. This holistic approach to stroke development – emphasizing more than just technique – is at the essence of “Total Performance” and is one of the reasons swimmers find success with our camps.  Training plans are different for older and younger campers, and further differentiated by training groups for a highly personalized experience.

Our campers receive small-group instruction in a low swimmer to coach ratio environment, team and leadership building sessions, daily video analysis of strokes and classroom sessions. Most importantly, Total Performance campers have FUN--both in and out of the pool--with scavenger hunts, variety shows, games and meeting new friends!

The camp accommodates both the novice and highly-trained swimmer (ages 10 - 18).  Please note this is not a learn-to-swim camp.  We recommend campers to have had at least one season of competitive swimming and know how to swim all four strokes.

 

Camp Highlights

  • Two swim sessions designed to train more effectively
