INDIVIDUAL MEDLEY CLINIC (FEBRUARY 16-17, 2018) 

Believe it or not, the results achieved in competition have the greatest impact on long-term swimming success. At PEAK, providing swimmers with the tools they need to excel is our top priority. Our Mental Edge Clinic covers the three most important facets of racing, including the pre-meet preparation, the pre-race routine, and real-race rehearsal. Visualizing techniques, positive affirmations, and strategies to overcome race-limiting beliefs round off the pre-meet portion. The pre-race portion teaches swimmers how to achieve their ideal mental state before stepping on the block. Finally, real-race rehearsals give swimmers a prime opportunity to apply their new-found skills. Created by Olympic Coach Nick Baker, the clinic’s curriculum is second to none. Coach Baker has authored five books on swimming and produced four swimming videos. A Mental Edge Workbook, to be used as a reference, is also included. This one-of-a-kind clinic is ideally suited for swimmers looking for that extra something.

OFFICIAL CHECK-IN
Check-in will take place from 8:15 AM to 8:45 AM on February 16.
 
CAMP FINALE
The camp concludes at 4:00 PM on February 17. Our closing ceremony will be held at 4:00 PM before sign-out and dismissal. Parents are invited to attend.

MENTAL EDGE CLINIC (FEBRUARY 18-19, 2018)

What is the ultimate event in swimming? If you picked the individual medley, you're correct! The reason why is that swimmers must be proficient in all four strokes to excel. The turns are also unique to this special event especially the turn from back-to-breast. Did you know that there are four back-to-breast turns? And we teach all four of them at the clinic. Choosing to train and compete in the individual medley has many long-term benefits, the main one being that it develops all four strokes giving swimmers more options and opportunities. It also increases the chance of earning a college swimming scholarship because individual-medley swimmers are very much in demand. Having one weak stroke can be extremely detrimental, so that's why we dedicate an entire practice to each of the four strokes. Saturday morning starts off with the butterfly, the butterfly turn, and the butterfly-to-backstroke turn. The same process is repeated with the other three strokes. Created by Olympic Coach Nick Baker, the clinic’s curriculum is second to none. Coach Baker has authored five books on swimming and produced four swimming videos. A 4-Stroke Handbook, to be used as a reference, is also included. The clinic offers many unique features and is highly recommended for swimmers with Olympic dreams.  

OFFICIAL CHECK-IN
Check-in will take place from 7:15 AM to 7:45 AM on February 18.
 
CAMP FINALE
Clinics conclude at 3:00 PM on February 19. Our closing ceremony will be held at 3:00 PM before sign-out and dismissal. Parents are invited to attend.

CAMP EXTRAS

COACH BAKER'S INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEOS:

1992 Olympic Coach Nick Baker has created an outstanding video series for swimmers looking to improve their technical and physical performance. There’s no better teaching tool than visual aides to effectively demonstrate and practice these skills!

Yoga for Peak Performance: The more flexible the swimmer, the greater the speed! And yoga is the perfect way for swimmers to increase their flexibility. Greater flexibility in the shoulders, chest, hips, and ankles allows the body to generate more propulsion and flow through the water with minimal drag and greater ease. The Yoga For Peak Performance video, led by professional instructors Theresa and Calvin of College Park Yoga, offers a series of effective yoga postures designed to relax the body and enhance flexibility in as little as 15 minutes a day! Price: $65.00

PEAK OUT! Dry-Land Video: Swimming alone cannot develop the strength, flexibility, agility, or coordination needed to perform at the elite-level. The PEAK OUT! Dry-Land Training Video targets these all-important physical traits – giving swimmers a clear, competitive edge. The five, high-energy training circuits demonstrated in the video can be performed away from the pool and require no equipment. It’s the perfect fit for motivated swimmers on the move! Format: Stream video online. 82 minutes. Price: $85.00

PEAK Refresher 2.0: The PEAK Refresher 2.0 video, produced by 1992 Olympic Coach Nick Baker, builds on the fundamentals of Refresher 1.0 and introduces many elite-level skills not available on other swimming videos. The multiple and innovative camera angles take learning to a whole new level. The skills presented in this video are guaranteed to boost swimming performance! Format: Stream video online. 59 minutes. Price: $115.00

PEAK Refresher 1.0: The PEAK Refresher 1.0 is a state-of-the-art video also produced by 1992 Olympic Coach Nick Baker. It vividly illustrates key elements of the front, back, and relay start, along with the four strokes and turns. The step-by-step format greatly enhances learning. Format: Stream video online. 44 minutes.

    See you again soon!

    February 27, 2017: Coach Nick and Staff, We just want to tell you what a great experience our son had at the Westchester Starts & Strokes Clinic this past February. The clinic happened to be a couple of weeks before CT Regionals and he had best times in EVERY event. He looked great, his starts were much quicker, and despite having just moved up an age group, he placed in every event he raced! We'll see you all again soon!

    Such a positive force!

    February 22, 2017: Dear Coach Nick, we can’t thank you enough for being such a positive force in our daughter’s life. You have motivated her, trained her, and made it possible for her to achieve as she has. The most important is that she knows that you only expect the best from her. Thank you for all that you do.

    Thank you!

    February 22, 2017: Coach Nick, we want to thank you again so much for all you’ve brought to our daughter during the 3 PEAK camps she’s attended in 2014. She has progressed strongly and is truly passionate about swimming – thanks to a very large extent to what she’s learned with you. It was definitely worth the trip from Belgium! We are booked to come back again to the Orlando Winter Camp and look forward to seeing you soon.

    Quality camp!

    February 21, 2017: We are most impressed by the quality of the swim camp. Coach Nick and his team are not only excellent coaches, they are also caring and encouraging. Many swimmers hit a plateau in their training. It’s difficult to move forward without knowing the problem and how to correct it. Coach Nick and his staff spotted the areas our daughter needs to improve and helped her to correct them. We would like to thank Coach Nick and team for the excellent experience our daughter had.

    Amazing!

    March 3, 2016: Just attended the Westchester clinic at the Saw Mill Club. Coach Baker is amazing! Greatest coach I’ve ever met. Incredibly skilled at his craft and very humble. I’m currently reading his book. I wish there were more coaches like him.

    Loved it!

    February 26, 2016: My daughter attended the camp in Westchester over the long weekend and LOVED it. She said the work was hard but good and the instruction great, because “they show us what to do, not just tell us.” We will definitely be coming back!
