Gain the mental, technical and physical edge at
Peak Performance Swim Camps

Escape the winter blues and train in warm, sunny Orlando, Florida. Our 4-day camp features two training levels for competitive swimmers ages 8-18 and offers both day and overnight packages.

Maximizing swimming potential through a holistic training approach is the mission of Peak Performance Swim Camp. To fulfill our mission, we seek to empower our swimmers through a two-tiered process of teaching and training. The teaching side includes daily chalk talks, video presentations, and ongoing poolside demonstrations. In addition, a targeted teaching strategy focused on swimmers’ individual needs is employed.

Peak 1 offers a 75/25 blend of physical and technical conditioning while our Peak 2 offers a 50/50 blend of physical and technical conditioning. In addition, all of our camps offer an in-depth mental conditioning curriculum designed to enhance a swimmer's self-esteem, develop focus skills and improve the ability to perform in stressful situations.

PEAK 1

Well-suited for advanced age group and senior-level swimmers, ages 11-18, who train 5,000 yards/meters (or greater) per practice.

PEAK 1 is our most challenging swim camp. The camp builds throughout the week in both intensity and expectation. State-of-the-art skill progressions are combined with challenging swim sets. Swimmers are challenged to maintain their newly acquired skills throughout each set. Each day begins with a powerful mental presentation emphasizing the important role that the mind plays in peak swimming performance. The underlying “positive mental message” is repeated throughout the day to heighten its impact and create lasting change. Each day of camp ends on a high note with swimmers feeling mentally, technically, and physically empowered.

In addition to our 8 challenging in-water training sessions, PEAK 1 also includes 4 intense dry-land training sessions, 2-4 swimming related yoga sessions, and 4 inspiring mental conditioning sessions.

Note: Peak 1 is not well suited for swimmers with swimming-related injuries.

PEAK 2

Ideally suited for developmental, intermediate, and advanced age group swimmers, ages 9-16, who train between 3,000 to 5,000 yards/meters per practice.

PEAK 2 is the lead-up camp to PEAK 1. The daily structure of PEAK 2 is similar to PEAK 1, but the skill progressions and challenging swim sets are adjusted to reflect skill and performance levels. Lane assignments for swimmers are based on ability level rather than age. Like PEAK 1, each day begins with a powerful mental presentation emphasizing the important role that the mind plays in peak swimming performance. The underlying “positive mental message” is repeated throughout the day to heighten its impact and create lasting change. Each day of camp ends on a high note with swimmers feeling mentally, technically, and physically empowered.

In addition to our 8 challenging in-water training sessions, PEAK 2 also includes 4 intense dry-land training sessions, 2-4 swimming related yoga sessions, and 4 inspiring mental conditioning sessions.

    Inspired my son to be better!

    I just wanted to share our positive story! My son attended your Spring Camp in Orlando for the second time. For him, it was an another amazing experience like the first time. For me, as a mom, who attends every single practice every day, it has been rewarding because I have seen the progress in technique and attitude in practice as well as in meets. This past weekend we had our first meet since the camp, and it is with great pride and joy to tell you that all of my son’s times went down!!! And he is getting really close to qualifying for National LC Championships in Puerto Rico. His times not only went down, but they decreased significantly. In the 100m Free, his entry time was 1:27.00 and he finished first in his heat with 1:21.51!!! Every night when my son goes to bed, he reads Coach Baker’s book, 101 Winning Ways. Thanks, Coach Nick and PEAK Coaches, for inspiring my son to be better! Hope to come back to another camp soon!!!

    Thank you!

    You asked me to send you my results from my last meet. Well, you were right, I swam awesome. I won 7 out of 7 events and high point! It felt so amazing. My mind was free of all the stuff I usually think about. I tried the mental ideas you taught me, it felt so easy to swim fast! My strokes and turns felt really smooth and fast. Everybody told me I looked great. My coach and parents couldn't believe how well I swam. Everyone kept coming up to me and congratulating me. They wondered what I had done to swim so fast. I just smiled at them. I don't want anyone to know my secret. You are the greatest coach ever. One visit to your camp made all the difference. I plan to come see you this summer. Hopefully you're not sold out. Thank you for everything.

    Great Camp!

    Attending your camp was one of the most memorable experiences my daughter has ever had. Megan had a blast and said she learned a great deal and worked harder than she had in a very long time. She is very anxious and excited to get started with the short course season. Your camp curriculum is far superior to anything we have ever experienced. Megan couldn't wait for the next practice to come. You are an excellent coach and positive role model. It was a true honor to have my daughter swim for you.

    Outstanding!

    Just wanted to say thanks again for an outstanding two days of instruction. As you may recall, we left straight from Orlando for a weeks’ vacation. Upon returning we went to a three-day meet in Virginia. Lauren dropped 46 seconds and achieved three NAG times. After her last race she leaped from the pool, ran across the deck to deliver a hug of excitement. I have never seen a smile so big. What else can we say but THANKS!
