The Sprint Training emphasis is designed to take your sprint events to the next level. Led by Saint Vincent College's Head Swim Coach Josh Gurekovich, athletes will learn the same drills the team uses that has produced All-Americans, NCAA National Qualifiers, and Conference Champions in all strokes. The sprint camp will have a high focus on generating speed and power in all four strokes, starts and turns.

Campers will have daily training sessions in the pool, as well educational classroom experiences. Classroom sessions will be used to discuss and analyze the different techniques needed to become a premier sprinter. In the pool athletes will learn highly technical drills, and utilize specialized sprinting equipment that will teach campers the keys to generating more speed and power during racing. All major components of sprint races will be discussed including, starts, turns, finishes and race strategies.

The sprint camp is open to all swimmers ages 13-18 although it is designed for swimmers with A times or faster based on the USA Swimming Time Standards.

    Great opportunity!

    July 12, 2017: My son attended this camp as somewhat of a beginner. His primary sport is cross country and he was looking to become a competitive swimmer. This camp was exactly what he needed. He made great friends that ran with him and also helped him advance his swim technique. He came home more excited about swimming and with so many friends!
