Convenient and affordable, the 3rd Quadrennial Mutual of Omaha BREAKOUT Trials Training Camp will be held from June 26-July 3 2016 at the Brownell-Talbot School Pool and the Kroc Center in Omaha, NE. Swimmers in town for the Trials can pick from 21 different sessions to train with Olympians Jason Lezak, Ian Crocker, Kristy Kowal and Josh Davis. Founder of the BREAKout! Swim Clinic Tour and the BREAKout! Trials Training Camp Josh Davis explains the importance of this unique training camp…

“Thousands of swimmers will be in town to watch their heroes, siblings, and friends race at the Century Link Center but skipping practice for 3, 4 or more days in the middle of their season is not good. We believe the greatest service we can provide our fellow swimmers in Omaha that week is a technique based, challenging, age-appropriate workout lead by Olympic Legends Jason Lezak, Kristy Kowal and Ian Crocker. People will be blown away by the stadium, the races, and the Aquazone but the BREAKout! Training Camp is the only event at Trials that will keep you in shape for your season and complete the Ultimate Trials experience. And thanks to Mutual of Omaha this Trials Training Camp is only $30 per session. Swimmers can train with the Olympians, stay in shape for a great season and then cheer guilt free as they watch the most exciting swim meet in the world. If you want to have the vacation of a lifetime, come train with Ian, Kristy, Jason and Josh and then head to the stadium to watch the GOAT – Michael Phelps race in the US one last time!”

An elementary school teacher in her hometown for over 14 years now, she is a master motivator and technique specialist.

Ian Crocker – The shy tall kid from Portland, ME with no Olympic size pool to train in, shocked the swimming world when he made the 2000 Sydney Olympics at 18 years old in the 100m butterfly. He went on to establish a great rivalry with Michael Phelps and held the world record in the 100m fly for 6 years from 2003 to 2009. His 2005 time of :50.40 in a textile suit is still considered one of the great swims of all time. Ian won the 100yd fly all 4 years at the University of Texas and won a gold medal at all 3 of his Olympics 2000, 2004 and 2008.

Jason Lezak – Jason “The Anchor” Lezak has been to 4 Olympic Games, was team captain of the last two in 2008 and 2012 and has anchored more Team USA relays than anyone in history. The most famous of all being the 2008 Beijing 4×100 free relay where he swam the fastest split of all time with a :46.0. Even more amazing is he trained himself for 3 years leading up to that moment. Jason is a proud husband and father of 3 kids and loves to inspire the next generation of swimmers that hard work does pay off and to never give up!

Josh Davis USMS Nationals by Mike LewisJosh Davis – After coming home from the 1996 Atlanta Olympics with 3 gold medals, Josh began teaching and speaking around the country.
