Camp Details

Peak Performance is offering a NEW 2018 weekend clinic series! Attend our 4-STROKE CLINIC this Spring in Lexington during the popular Keeneland Spring Stakes Season.

4-STROKE CLINIC: Most swimmers have a best stroke, followed by the other three which can often lag far behind. The problem with this scenario is that the gap between the best stroke and the others can widen from year-to-year, putting swimmers at a severe disadvantage and limiting their future options. Being proficient in all four strokes is by far the best outcome, particularly for age-group swimmers. Our two-day clinic places an equal emphasis on all four strokes. A 4-Stroke Handbook, to be used as a reference, is also included.

DAY CAMP AMENITIES

• Catered Lunch
• 4-Stroke Handbook
• Complimentary T-shirt and swim cap
• NIKE-PEAK souvenir

CAMP EXTRAS

COACH BAKER'S INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEOS:

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 PERFPRMANCE: 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 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 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.

PEAK REFRESHER COMBO PACKAGE: Purchase the PEAK Refresher 2.0 video AND receive the PEAK Refresher 1.0 at half price ($75 value)!

    Best time yet!

    April 29, 2017: 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!

    Best camp!

    April 29, 2017: We really appreciate your camp program and feel like Jenna learns so much each time she attends. The moment she returned home from her last visit she started to mentor her teammates on your Swim Positive philosophy. I also take pleasure in watching her remove her Swim Positive wristband before a race and giving it to the timer for safekeeping.
