Camp Details

Peak Performance Swim Camp’s mission is to maximize swimming potential through a holistic training approach. The origin of this approach comes from a book entitled, The Swimming Triangle, written by our Founder and Head Coach Nick Baker. Coach Baker believes maximizing swimming potential requires a three-sided approach focused on mental, technical, and physical conditioning. To validate his approach, all one needs to do is list the inherent qualities of any great Olympic or world class athlete. No doubt the list would include a winning mindset, flawless technique, and supreme fitness.

Hard-nosed training matters, but smart-tough racing matters more. At PEAK Race Camps, we specialize in teaching the mental, technical, and physical skills to help swimmers excel where it matters most!
    Our Race Camp curriculum includes:
    • Various focus and mental toughness simulations to sharpen the mental edge.
    • Race rehearsals to heighten the competitive spirit and teach the ideal racing strategy for all distances.
    • Technical stroke refinement.
    • Power, flexibility, and skill drills to quicken all starts and turns.

12 & OVER CAMP: For competitive swimmers ages 12-18. The 12 & Over Camp is our most challenging training level and builds throughout the week in both intensity and expectation. State-of-the-art skill progressions are combined with challenging swim sets, and swimmers are tested during the week to maintain their newly acquired skills. Swimmers are assigned to lanes based on their current skill and performance level.

11 & UNDER CAMP: For competitive swimmers ages 8-11. The 11 & Under Camp is our lead-up training level to the 12 & OVER CAMP. While both camps follow the same format, the skill progressions and challenging swim sets are adjusted for younger swimmers. Swimmers are assigned to lanes based on their current skill and performance level.

Note: This is NOT a learn-to-swim program, but specifically designed for competitive swimmers who can perform multiple lengths of all four strokes and the official starts and turns.

Camp Questions & Answers

WHERE CAN I FIND THE HEALTH & RELEASE FORM?

In order for a swimmer to participate in the camp, the mandatory Health & Release Form must be completed, signed, and turned in BEFORE the camp commences. The Health & Release Form can be found at - secure.ussportscamps.com/welcome.

HOW ARE SWIMMERS GROUPED AT CAMP?

Lane assignments will be based on your best 100 Free time. We will ask you to email us your best 100 Free time when we send out the registration packet before camp. If you do not submit the correct time, then there is a strong chance that you will be placed in the wrong lane, and will not fully benefit from the clinic training. Thank you for your assistance!

    Un-limit yourself!

    June 17, 2016: Hello Coach Baker! I just wanted to let you know that I took what you said about the 200 IM, not limiting myself from it and not being afraid, to my latest meet. I had lots of confidence up on the blocks and during the race. I went from a 2:43.69 to a 2:31.41 finals, a sectionals cut! What you said and showed me at the camp has helped me a lot in all strokes, starts, and turns! I am now very confident and I have un-limited myself a lot! Thank you again!

    — Emma C. Camper

    I did it!

    June 19, 2015: NICK!!!! - I did it! I made age group provincials in my 200 breast stroke! I have taken off 12 seconds in this since seeing you this summer in Connecticut. Your confidence in me helped my confidence in myself …a lot! Thank you so much (and all the other awesome coaches like Tim ). I can’t wait to come again soon….

    Thank you!

    June 18, 2015: Dear Nick & PEAK staff…THANK YOU for all that you have done for our daughter! The all important triangle philosophy has significantly impacted her both in and out of the pool! This past fall was a very rewarding season. She placed first in the 100 Breast at sectionals with a time of 1:06.27…then placed third in the 50 Free with a new school record and state qualifying time of 24.75…and also assisted all 3 relays in qualifying for States, thus qualifying in all 5 events. At States she swam the 100 Breast and captured the 8th place finish in the A Finals. You and your staff’s ability to break the stroke into integral component parts that the swimmer can understand and then build them back up in correct format is fascinating to observe. This method of instruction is concrete and one that swimmers are able to immediately feel results. We have moved into our club season and look forward to working with PEAK in the future!

    Can't wait to go back!

    June 18, 2015: Coach Baker … I am not sure that I can find adequate words to express our appreciation and gratitude to you and your team for the mental, technical, and physical training that you presented to our daughter. WE ARE THRILLED TO INFORM YOU THE SHE MADE NATIONALS IN HER 100 BR WITH THE EXACT QUALIFYING TIME OF 1:08.89! (She is also a math student so the exact time has always been required.) Before her race she visualized you being on deck watching, she cleared her mind, stayed calm, and swam her best with sheer determination. My husband and I will never forget that chilly morning in Orlando this past December, watching you give my daughter a private lesson. We knew then that she had never had this type of instruction before and that it was critical for her to reach her goals. I then brought her to your Westchester clinic and within 10 minutes in the pool with you, once again, I watched her breaststroke transformed – it has just been amazing to me. After returning from Greensboro, we will take a minute and plan our summer. She has already been asking when she may work with you again as she would love to every week!!!
