Technique camp is designed to teach fundamental and advanced stroke skills for all four strokes. Swimmers will learn new techniques to make their swimming easier and faster. Camp will focus on body line driven technique, while introducing athletes to Olympic level drills and exercises. We offer the technical camp as a chance for athletes to learn the ‘why’ behind the ‘what’. Our aim is to develop a more comprehensive swimmer so that they may have the technique to train at the highest level possible.

The last swim session of each day will focus specifically on the highly athletic motions and fundamental biomechanics of starts, turns, and breakouts. These vital skills, while often overlooked, are extremely important, and when used correctly, can help shave time off swims. We will teach and improve on these motions through drill and movement progressions, with the goal being for each athlete to utilize these skills in racing and competition.
