College Swimming Deficiencies


Too many swimmers

Coaches have limited time and cannot spend a lot of time with each swimmer. The result are generic practices not personalized to any one’s needs.

Lack of technique correction

In order to correct someone’s technique it requires filming, analysis, exercises and reinforcement. This requires a lot of time and attention that coaches don’t usually have.

Short Season

College season is short, so coaches need to focus on increasing speed and endurance with hard practices and dryland/weights. A swimming camp to perfect your technique is the perfect compliment so you can really drop those best times next season.
