The Race Club is proud to announce our first triathlon swim camp specifically for Triathletes and open water swimmers. This camp is be conducted in Pacific Palisades, CA July 30th through August 2nd, 2015. Coach and Race Club Director Gary Hall Sr., will be leading the camp in coaching. Professional triathlete, Andy Potts will be leading the camp on Saturday, August 1st, sharing his wisdom and expertise with the exclusive group of triathletes who sign up for camp. This camp will be unlike any other Race Club camp. We encourage all athletes to attend all 6 sessions since we need to cover so much about triathlon swimming during that time. We will try to cover but are not limited to; Fundamentals of Fast Swimming, swimming equipment to use, biomechanics in the water and what is best for each individual swimmer, nutrition, drills, 3 styles of freestyle, strength training, mental training, race strategy, breathing patterns, recovery, open water navigation, etc. We believe every swimmer is unique and needs individual guidance and coaching in training to reach your potential.

Pacific Palisades Maggie Gilbert Aquatic Center is located at 15777 Bowdoin Street Pacific Palisades, CA 90272. Tower 26 at Santa Monica beach is located at the beach and Ocean Park Blvd in Santa Monica, CA. During one hour private sessions, we can work on specific things with you or we can film you with a go pro and analyze your swimming on the tablet right after you swim within the same hour. Custom video analysis is filming your swimming above and under water with high quality footage. Then Richard Hall edits the footage into a custom video that is very clear and in depth footage. Then Gary Sr. does voice over analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the swimming. We send you the link about a month after the camp. Velocity Meter is cutting edge technology to measure your strength and propulsion in the water. We set up the whole system and we test you in the water. We then have an expert compile and edit all the data. Then Gary Hall Sr. analyzes the data and then skypes with you for one hour about the results, screen by screen. The skype call takes place a couple weeks after the Velocity Meter test is taken. You receive all the data and analysis.
