2nd Annual 'Reach Your Peak' Winter Swim Camp
Time & Location
About the Event
The 2nd Annual 'Reach Your Peak' Winter Swim Camp is presented by Peak Endurance Solutions. This is a 3-day swim camp led by coaches Ryan Eckert and Taylor Newgaard. The focus of this swim camp is on basic swim skills and open-water swim skills, tailored specifically for triathletes. Detailed event information, including a schedule of events as well as equipment needed for the swim camp, will be sent in an email after you have completed your registration.
There will be three 1-hour swim sessions in this swim camp, and each day will have a unique focus, ranging from proper body alignment and posture to open water skills that can be practiced in the pool (e.g., sighting, bilateral breathing, congested swimming, etc.). The purpose of this swim camp is to give triathletes some instruction on foundational swim skills and to provide each athlete with drills that should be incorporated into the athlete's pool-based swim training program for continual improvement. New to this year's swim camp will be the addition of footage of each athletes swim stroke. Over the course of the three days, we will pull all athletes aside individually for 10-15 minutes to film swim technique from both an underwater and above water vantage point. After the swim camp, we will analyze each athlete's swim technique and send a 1-page report with 1) a summary of the strength and weaknesses of the athlete's swim stroke, 2) a list of drills that will help the athlete improve the weakness in their swim stroke, and 3) the video links to their swim stroke footage. All athletes will walk away from the swim camp therefore with a better understanding of the foundational components that make up an efficienct and proficient swim stroke for triathlon as well as individual insights into improving their individual swim technique.
