Camp Director

Nick Baker

Former Olympic Coach Nick Baker founded Peak Performance Swim Camp in 1996. His vision was to create a holistic approach that would maximize an individual's potential and meet the needs of competitive swimmers of all ages and abilities. Over the past 14 years thousands of swimmers have participated in a Peak Performance Swim Camp

Read Full Bio

Nick Baker has been involved in competitive swimming since 1961. He swam competitively for 11 years (and qualified for the Olympic Trials in the 200M Breaststroke), coached club swimming for 21 years, and has exclusively run swim camps for the past 17 years.

He started his coaching career in Canada in 1972, and moved to the United States in 1993 to run a competitive swim camp at the International Swimming Hall of Fame in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

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

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.

In 1996, Nick founded Peak Performance Swim Camp. Since the camp's inception, Nick has traveled throughout the U.S. and abroad, conducting his one-of-a-kind swim camps. Past international locations include: Antigua, Aruba, Bermuda, Brazil, Canada, England, Hong Kong, Jamaica, Singapore, Spain, Turkey and Venezuela. Past U.S. locations include: Alabama, Alaska, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin. Currently, Peak Performance Swim Camp offers more than two dozen swim camps annually. Year-round private camps are also available.

In 2007, Nick formed a dynamic relationship with Nike-US Sports Camps, Inc. (USSC). USSC is the official and exclusive operator of Nike Sports Camps, and the largest provider of sports camps in the United States.

Over the last 38 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.

Other highlights in Nick's coaching career include co-creating "The Missing Link Fitness Test" in conjunction with the National Training Center in Clermont, Florida. The test is an all-encompassing, strength and flexibility evaluation for competitive swimmers of all ages. Nick has also presented at numerous, international coaching clinics and consulted for various swim teams worldwide. He currently consults at the Greenwich Y in Greenwich, Connecticut.

7 - The Number of Turns Covered

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.

Check-In
Check-in will take place from 8:15 AM to 8:45 AM on November 2 at the Drake High School pool.
 
Camp Finale

Become a better swimmer.

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!

Thank you!

You're a great coach and a super person. You've made such a difference in our daughter's life and we can't thank you enough.

Best coach!

Kyle looks great thanks to you. He dropped 4 seconds in his 200 IM. He's also got his dive back. Audrey is doing amazing since her visit. She took first place the 100 FL this past weekend. Max dropped another 3 seconds in his 100 BR. The kids think you're the best coach in the world.

Amazing camp!

Thank you for coaching me and helping me with all my strokes. I had an amazing time in your camp. I just came back from Junior Olympics and I got a medal in every single race. I got a 34.59 in my 50 FL because you helped me with my technique. I also got a first place in my 50 BR and 100 BR because of you. I still wear my Swim Positive bracelet and look forward to training with you again.
