Certification consists of three levels: Gold, Silver, and Bronze. Coaches advance from one level to the next based on knowledge, experience, and achievement.

Camp Details

OUR CURRICULUM

At Peak Performance Swim Camp, we believe every swimmer should be an IM’er first and a stroke/event specialist second. Unfortunately, few swimmers possess the essential knowledge necessary to take their stroke to the top. Our IM Clinic will introduce swimmers to the latest and greatest stroke technique. Our state-of-the-art stroke progressions will generate instant improvement by focusing on key stroke components (Body Position, Arm Cycle, Kick Cycle, Breathing Cycle, and Timing) of all 4 strokes.

The majority of swimmers lose valuable time at the walls and are forced to play catch-up swimming down the lane. Our innovative turning progressions will reverse that trend. Turns covered include the 3 IM Transition Turns.

Loved it!

My daughter attended the camp in Westchester over the long weekend and LOVED it. She said the work was hard but good and the instruction great, because “they show us what to do, not just tell us.” We will definitely be coming back!

Amazing!

We just recently attended one of your swim clinics at the new Sawmill Club in Mount Kisco. The facility was absolutely beautiful. Your coaching staff was amazing and your camp curriculum was extremely progressive and thorough. My daughter came home so inspired. We’ll be back!

Wow!

Wow! Just wanted to let you know how Dennis did at his high school meet last weekend. He swam the third leg of the 400 FR Relay. They had a big lead, so he swam with your new and vastly improved version of freestyle. He looked great and maintained the lead! He also swam the 100 BR and came up from the dive in first place and never gave up the lead. I think I can honestly say that was a first in his career. His starts and turns looked great. You really worked wonders with him this weekend. He seemed more confident than I have ever seen him before. He really takes in everything you say and believes that you give him the tools to be a better swimmer.

Best Camp!

Attending your camp was one of the most memorable experiences my daughter has ever had. Megan had a blast and said she learned a great deal and worked harder than she had in a very long time. She is very anxious and excited to get started with the short course season. Your camp curriculum is far superior to anything we have ever experienced. Megan couldn't wait for the next practice to come. You are an excellent coach and positive role model. It was a true honor to have my daughter swim for you.
