Gain a competitive edge by improving your starts, turns, and finishes! This 1-day clinic includes elite training for 3 Starts, 7 Turns, and 4 Finishes.

Swimmers are assigned to lanes based on their ability not age.  Price: $250
 
3 - The Number of Starts Covered
Swimmers will learn how to turn an average start into a good start, and a good start into a great start! Starts covered include: 2 types of track starts, 2 types of back starts, and 2 types of relay starts.
 
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.
 
4 - The Number of Finishes Covered
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.

Swimmers are assigned to lanes based on their ability not age.  Price: $250
 
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.

Dear Coach Baker,

My girls had an awesome time at the Greenwich Camp last week. They have not stopped talking about it and are truly excited about swimming again! I believe your approach was integral in making this a meaningful experience for them to apply the principles they learned for swimming as well as other aspects of life. I selected your camp because its holistic philosophy toward swimming so that they would develop in the sport with sound fundamentals and an approach to training.

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!

Coach Baker, When we first spoke, I advised you of my daughter's deep desire to qualify for the state meet. One week after her private lesson with you she knocked off an amazing 14 seconds in her 100 BR and 6 seconds off her 50 BR easily qualifying for the state meet. On top of that, she showed improvements of at least four seconds in another six events. I want to thank you for helping my daughter believe in her ability and achieve her goals.
