7 - The Number of Turns Covered
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: 4 standard turns (FL, BK, BR, FR) plus 3 IM Transition Turns.

A winning finish takes advance planning; and our unique finish progressions will show swimmers how to plan for victory. Finishes covered include: butterfly, breaststroke, and freestyle, plus 3 types of backstroke finishes.

4 - The Number of Strokes Covered
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 Stroke Clinic will introduce swimmers to the latest and greatest stroke technique.
 
5 - The Number of Parts within a Stroke
Research indicates that elite-level swimmers enjoy up to 75% technical advantage over the average swimmer - an astonishing amount! Our state-of-the-art stroke progressions will generate instant improvement by focusing on the 5 key stroke components (Body Position, Arm Cycle, Kick Cycle, Breathing Cycle, and Timing) of all 4 strokes.

Camp Director

Nick Baker

Nick Baker cofounded the original Peak Performance Swim Camp in 1996. In 2005 he branched out on his own and founded the present-day version. His vision was to create a holistic camp with a focus on developing the whole swimmer from a mental, technical, and physical perspective. Nick Baker has been involved in competitive swimming since 1961. He swam competitively for 11 years (and...

In the year prior to moving to the United States, one of Nick' swimmers, Lisa Flood, qualified for the 1992 Canadian Olympic Team in the 100 BR placing fourteenth overall. Nick attended the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games as Lisa's personal coach. Lisa also won the 200 BR at NCAA Division 1 Championships, medalled at the Pan American Games, and competed in her second Olympics in 1996 placing twelfth overall in the 100 BR.

In 1995, Nick published a motivational book for competitive swimmers entitled 101 Winning Ways. The material for the book came from observing the "winning ways" of successful swimmers.

Since the camp's inception, Nick has traveled throughout the U.S. and abroad, conducting his holistic swim camps. Past international locations include: Antigua, Aruba, Bermuda, Brazil, Canada, China, Curacao, England, Hong Kong, Jamaica, Singapore, Spain, Turkey, and Venezuela. Past U.S. locations include: Alabama, Alaska, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. Peak Performance Swim Camp currently offers more than two dozen swim camps and clinics annually including clinics for triathletes and master swimmers. More than 800 swimmers participated in 2011. Private coaching as well as start, stroke, and turn video analysis are also available throughout the year.

In 2007, Nick formed a dynamic partnership with Nike-United States Sports Camps (USSC). USSC is the official and exclusive operator of US Sports/Nike Camps, America's largest sports camp network and official operator of Nike Sports Camps worldwide.

Over the last thirty-nine years, Nick has coached swimmers of all ages and abilities, including Olympic Finalists, Olympic Trial Qualifiers, NCAA Champions, Senior National Champions, Junior National Champions, State Champions, National and Junior National Qualifiers, Zone Champions, and Junior Olympic Champions.

Nick has been a featured writer in Swimming World magazine and presented at numerous coaching clinics throughout the world. He also acts as a consultant to various swim teams including the Greenwich YMCA in Greenwich, Connecticut.

Amazing!

Just attended the Palm Gardens Camp. Coach Baker is amazing! Greatest coach I have ever met. Incredibly skilled at his craft and very humble. I am currently reading his book. I wish there were more coaches like him. We will attend another camp soon!

Thank you!

Before I came to see you I hadn't come close to my best time in over a year. Although my best time was a 1:06.88, the closest I came was 1:14.52. My coach couldn't figure out what to do. I spent two hours with you and I went 1:05.71 at States!

Great quality camp

Jonathan continues to impress. A Chinese team from Beijing was at the meet and dominated, although Jonathan beat his Chinese counterpart in the 100 FL. This Chinese team seemed to come out of one of your camps, prompting my kids to say: "those are Coach Baker's strokes - totally effortless!"

Best Camp!

I have told numerous families about your wonderful camp. They were all very excited about Samantha's progress upon her return home. Her fellow teammates could not believe how much she had improved. Her confidence and love for the sport have risen to new levels.
