It’s that time of year again in the swimming community: training trip season. Besides the sore muscles and killer tanlines, one thing swimmers can always count on bringing home is an awesome trip video to show family and friends.
Although many college and club training trips come after Christmas, legendary club program Germantown Academy has gotten ahead of the game by having their training trip before the holiday. Their video was posted on December 24th, featuring equal parts work and fun. The video captures the carefree spirit that comes with a trip to paradise in order to practice the sport you love.
The video was filmed and edited by Greg Callahan and Towson commit Tommy Whitman. Other Germantown swimmers who have verbally committed to swim for D1 programs next season include sprinter Ryan Torie (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill), fly and distance freestyler Lauren Henasey (Georgetown University), and fly and IM’er McKensie Meyer (Villanova University).
The Germantown Academy Aquatic Club in Ft. Washington, Pennsylvania (outside of Philadelphia) has produced several Olympians, including 1988 silver medalist David Wharton. It is currently led by head coach Jeff Thompson.
