“I am not improving!”


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.

If you don’t have a coach…

The past three years I haven’t had a coach. In that time my butterfly stroke changed a little bit, I was pulling with my arms too close to each other. The trouble is that I didn’t know I was doing that, because no one was correcting me and I couldn’t see my arms while my head was down. So the way I found out was filming and watching myself in slow motion and from different angles.

LOCATIONS

*Mini camp*

California, Brian Bent Memorial Aquatics Center

BBMAC is the premier San Diego aquatic center and is perfect for team outings and lessons. 

BBMAC is considered one of the most complete and preferred swimming complexes anywhere in the United States. This comes from a combination of what the complex provides and its location in Coronado, California where the average summer temperature is 76 °F (24 °C) and the average winter temperature is 65 °F (18 °C); lows rarely drop below 55 °F (13 °C). The island of Coronado is set just off the coast of San Diego and is considered extremely safe, walkable, surprisingly affordable, easy to navigate, and downright beautiful.

The number one priority of all traveling teams is the safety of their swimmers. Because of it’s small size, the fact that it’s an island, Coronado is known for its safety. In fact, the one square mile island has its own police department, which is situated right in the middle of the town and has one of the lowest rates of incidences anywhere in the United States.

Gain an edge on your teammates and your competition


Most swimmers focus on speed and endurance.

A large percentage of swimmers that focus on technique don’t have a coach, a teammate or an underwater camera to help them.

If they do have someone or something to help them, they probably don’t have the knowledge on how to correct those mistakes with proven drills, exercises and stretches.

Be one of the 1% that take advantage of this opportunity to improve your technique to be faster with less effort.

Testimonials

What attendants are saying:

camp swimmers masters

(L-R) Me, Michael, Lisa, Ana, Fulya, Erick, Raul — Camp Co-Founder

” One day I stumbled onto the Skills NT Swimming channel and devoured their videos on butterfly. The biggest benefit was motivation, as anyone can tell you — butterfly likely takes someone watching and correcting you.

” The channel is run by two brothers from Mexico, Raul and Mauri, and thru a mix of humor and careful instruction, they make swimming very accessible to all levels. Their mantra of “technique first and always” was one that I took to heart.  After checking out their website, I discovered they were hosting swim camps in Mexico and Thailand…  I arrived at the San Luis Potosí airport in Mexico…

” I didn’t know how to do an open turn or what they look like, I get books out of the library, I watch youtube… but its not the same, even when you read it or watch it, as having people there with you on the deck and in the pool going: “ok but now do it again and change this angle” it really makes a big difference.

It cover all the different aspects of swimming. It’s excellent.
It’s a comprehensive & unique, it worth you take time to try, looking forward to the next camp.”

The camp was excellent way to observe myself via top/side/underwater camera, learn principles of techniques, turns, start ups and gym to support swimming. It was very good location, friendship, connections and fun. I will definitely re-do preferably with my swim mates from camp #1.”
