SUNDAY STROKE CLINIC
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.
