About the event
The 4th Annual 'Reach Your Peak' Spring Open Water Swim Camp is presented by Peak Endurance Solutions. This is a one-day open water swim camp led by Ryan Eckert. The focus of this open water swim camp is on basic open water swim skills and pacing tactics tailored specifically for triathletes. Detailed event information, including a schedule of events as well as equipment needed for the swim camp, will be sent to you in an email after you have completed your registration.
There will be 75 minutes of open water swim education, including mobility for swimming and for comfort in wetsuits, swim warm-up exercises that can be done priot to open water swimming, and putting on a wetsuit properly. Afterwards, there will be a 75 minute swim session consisting of 45-60 minutes of open water skills practice followed by 15-30 minutes of open water "free swimming" in which you will get to practice these new skills and accumulate some swim distance/time. We will be covering a range of open water skills, from beginner to more advanced open water skills. Some of the skills that we will work on include bilateral breathing, sighting, turning at buoys, drafting, and swim exit/entry technique. The purpose of this swim camp is to give triathletes some instruction on foundational open water swim skills and to provide each athlete with drills and concepts that should be incorporated into the athlete's open water-based swim training program for continual improvement. Keep in mind this is a group-based swim camp, and so individual attention to each athlete's technique will be secondary; however, Ryan Eckert will give individualized instruction and tips when/if he sees something to be corrected. IMPORTANT: Athletes signing up for this swim camp should be comfortable enough to swim in open water with a group as we will be swimming out into open water away from the shoreline.
NOTE: We are limiting this camp to 5 participants/athletes to allow for greater one-on-one time and attention.

Saturday 10/8: 11:00-2:00 pm (check-in and educational, dryland discussion/skills from 11:00-12:30 pm; swim from 12:30-1:45 pm, questions from 1:45-2:00 pm)
