Video analysis, dry land activities designed to improve individual fitness levels, performance, training, goal-setting and leadership presentations, are all part of a full schedule in 2023.

Coach Dean Hutchinson returns to Annapolis in 2024 to lead aspiring swimmers through a three hour session on starts and turns.  Coach Hutchinson, who competed at Auburn University for legendary Coach David Marsh, does a terrific job with each participant.  

A former volunteer coach for Navy, Coach Hutchinson remains active in the sport of competitive swimming in addition to serving as a physical therapist in New Jersey.  Coach Hutchinson will make several take home points through the three hour session emphasizing the relevance and impact of a quality start and turn with your race.

This is a one session clinic that repeats itself on Sunday. Swimmers are permitted to attend consecutive sessions.  This clinic is limited to 50 participants per session.

NAVY Technique + Video

With the popularity of the Aquanex+Video Clinic at Navy, we felt it was time to offer another video option different from the Aquanex clinic.  This clinic is a combination of video and teaching.  Swimmers are recorded upon arrival.  From there, coaches will lead swimmers though a teaching session covering all four strokes.  Swimmers will receive a breakdown of their video after the clinic with some helpful instructions.  

This clinic will be led by Navy coach Mark Liscinsky and a supporting staff.  As a former athlete, Coach Liscinsky was an IM and backstroke specialist and is excellent in teaching all four strokes.  This clinic is limited to 25 participants per session and is scheduled for three hours in length.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This schedule is different for the first and last days of camp. On the first day, both DAY and EXTENDED DAY campers should check in between1300-1400 (1:00-2:00pm) and will be ready for pickup at 2015 on day one.  On the last day, day & extended day campers will arrive at 0845 and will be ready for pick up at 1200.

Resident camps are open to swimmers who are nine years of age and older. Extended Day and Commuter camps are open to all swimmers eight years of age and older. For the Stroke Camp, swimmers of most levels and abilities are welcome. If your camper has yet to participate for at least one season on a team and/or has limited competitive experience, then give us a call or email before registering your camper. NCAA rules allow graduated High School Seniors to attend camp.

Residential swimmers will stay in Bancroft Hall, the dormitory of the U.S. Naval Academy. Swimmers are requested to bring their own sheets,(regular twin), blankets and pillow for a single bed. Swimmers will be roomed two, three or four per room. Accommodations are excellent. Mature, experienced male and female chaperones provide supervision in the hall and provide fun evening recreational programs.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided to residential swimmers in King Hall – the US Naval Academy dining hall. Snack and juice machines are located in Bancroft Hall. Please note that lunch is not provided on first and last day of camp. Lunch will be provided for commuter campers on all days minus the first and last day. Lunch and dinner will be provided for all extended day campers minus first and last day. Dinner will be provided to all commuter and extended day campers on day one.
