Swim Camp Feature
Popular Fusion Swim Camps, located at Dennison University in Granville, Ohio and at the University of Denver in Denver, Colorado provide swim stroke instruction and drills so swim camp students can improve their form and speed in swimming.
Each program at the facility can be taken as an overnight camp or as a day or half-day instructional program. Dry land exercise, workshops in nutrition and bon-fire nights are all part of the overnight camp activities.
Two other reasons for participating in Fusion swim instruction are the coaches who lead the camps. Coach Gregg Parini at the Denison camp and Brian Schrader at the Denver facility have demonstrated their commitment to the sport of swimming through their leadership roles at each of the universities.
Coach and trainer Gregg Parini, host of Gregg Parini’s Swim Academy, is the featured instructor at the Denison University Fusion Swim Camp at Denison University. Mr. Parini’s Stroke Camp and Start & Turn Clinic take place in late June, with the Start & Turn Clinic scheduled on June 20 and the Stroke Camp featured from June 21 to June 25.
