2017 Camp Information
There are two different training tracts that make up the  Michigan Swim Camp: the Technique Training Track and the Intensive Training Track  Please read below for a more detailed description of these two summer training options. Please do not hesitate to contact our camp office if you have further questions about the techniques, skills and workouts focused on during our camp sessions. You will be asked to indicate which training tract you would like to participate in during the registration process. 

The Technique Training Track (4-6,000 yds./day) is designed for individual and group instruction in fundamental and advanced stroke skills, and start and turn techniques. A daily optional training workout is available. The use of a front mount snorkel is strongly recommended.  The Technique Tract is a skill acquisition curriculum, which begins with basic body balance and progresses to swimming with maximum efficiency (i.e. fewest number of strokes per length). This is the foundation of all fast swimming. Starts, turns, Gambetta dryland training, pacing, nutrition, team building, True Colors, Mindset, and mental training are part of this comprehensive curriculum. Swimmers are filmed daily and their HD video is viewed and critiqued in written form every day.  Yardage in this workout varies from 3,000-4,000 yards depending upon the ability level of the swimmer. This tract is designed for: the younger swimmer (12 and under) who has a need to form excellent skill foundations; the older swimmer who is relatively new to the sport and needs to gain a higher efficiency level (yes, we have a lot of high school swimmers in this tract); and the skilled swimmer who needs a week of fine tuning without the added stress of an intense training.

The Intensive Track challenges swimmers to embrace the importance of team, look at technique in new ways, and learn how to work smarter as well as harder in practices. Athletes will leave this camp with a new understanding of the sport and a desire to make themselves, and those around them better. This tract is designed for swimmers 12 and over who have high aspirations in competitive swimming.
  • Swimmers will be broken up into training groups depending upon the workout focus.
  • This camp includes 2 in water training workouts and 1 dry-land workout per day. The morning and afternoon sessions are in-water training sessions. Threshold, VO2max, lactate tolerance, and maximal speed training are part of the in water training program. The evening session will be out of water with an emphasis on core strength, body awareness and overall fitness.
  • Technique video review sessions each day will provide the backbone for each workout. In addition, swimmers are individually videoed and each swimmer receives a written stroke critique upon completion of the camp.
  • This tract requires that swimmers arrive in shape and training at full capacity (e.g. ~ 35,000 yds/week) as daily volume averages around 8,000 – 10,000 yards.
  • A competent level of skill in all four strokes is required. It is important not to "push" younger athletes into this tract in an effort to maintain group cohesion, training volumes, and prevent injury.
