2016 FUSION SWIM CAMPS
The two 2016 Fusion Swim Camps have been set up so young swimmers can hone their skills in competitive strokes, turn mechanics, breathing and body positioning. A strong emphasis is placed on overall conditioning.
Therefore, an energetic and committed staff have come together to conduct a program which makes it possible for swimmers to leave camp with a renewed level of excitement about swimming.
Fusion Swim Camps – About the Facilities
The purpose of the Fusion Swim camps then is to direct students in swimming so they improve their form by practicing specific drills until they realize their objectives. Each Fusion Swim Camp and facility features certain characteristics – any of which will add to the swim-camp experience.
The Gregg Parini Swim Academy at Denison University
For example, the Denison University camp is located in Granville, Ohio. A safe and rustic venue, the site is home to brand new natatorium and highlights such swim camp activities as:
- Dry land workouts;
- Psychology workshops; and, for fun,
- Campfire nights with s’mores.
Instructors make use of underwater video equipment to critique each camper’s progress. An itinerary that runs from 7:00 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. keeps participants plenty active during the five-day overnight stay.
Brian Schrader’s Swim Camp at the University of Denver
At the Denver Fusion Swim Camp, camper-swimmers enjoy great-tasting nutrition and comfortable dormitory accommodations. Beyond swimming activities, campers take trips to such places as Dave & Busters as well as visit the Ritchie Center’s rock climbing wall. Ping pong, pool and movie nights are also featured at camp. An iPad analysis of swimming is provided in connection with underwater video technology.
Long Course and Short Course Workouts
Both of the camps feature training in both long course and short course workouts. The stroke development camp tests swimmers of all abilities and supports their effort in achieving goals in form and speed.
The Start and Turn Clinic
In addition, a Start and Turn clinic is available at each camp which enables swimmers to work at improving their freestyle and backstrokes as well as open turns, flip and kicking. Dry land exercises and technique education is included in the program. The Start & Turn clinic is conducted for 24 hours and housing and meals are provided. You can take this instruction in addition to stroke camp or opt to sign up separately.
