Camp Description

The SU Competitive Swimming Technique Camp will focus on stroke skills and will provide swimmers with sessions designed to improve technique. It will include technique sessions for each of the four competitive strokes that will be oriented toward swimming efficiency. Technique sessions will revolve around drills and explanations of the physical forces governing swimming. These technique sessions will cover competitive techniques for starts and turns for each of the four strokes. Camp will include workout sessions geared toward emphasizing ideas learned in that day’s technique session. The daily program of the camp can include dry land exercises, flexibility work, nutrition information, and goal setting exercises. All participants need to know how to swim the four competitive strokes. While we will try to meet everyone’s needs, from the novice swimmer to the advanced, we must emphasize that these camps are for swimmers who train and compete on a competitive level. THIS IS NOT A LEARN TO SWIM CAMP!
