Swim Camp Program Descriptions
Short-Course Season (SCS) Endurance Swim Camp is from September through March and Long-Course Season (LCS) Endurance Swim Camp is from April through August. The year-long (SCS & LCS) Endurance Camp Swim Program is multi-tiered program serving both the recreational and the fitness swimmer and the competitive swimmer. You have to be in shape to swim fast and the purpose of the Endurance Swim Camp is to condition the competitive swimmer so that they can swim their fastest. For the Recreational & Fitness Swimmer the purpose of the Endurance Camp is to provide a total body workout to develop and maintain the swimmer in peak overall physical condition. The Endurance Swim Camp Program helps all swimmers get ready for the hard stuff that comes later in regular swim practice. For swimmers who participate in other sports the Endurance Camp Program really conditions them and helps to protect them from
injuries. The program teaches at a pace that enables the swimmers endurance system to develop. The program progressively trains the swimmer to be able to handle a longer, harder level of endurance swimming to give them deep conditioning. The Endurance Camp Program cycles through 3 main training, energy and heart rate categories which enables the swimmers body to learn and adapt to different kinds of stress. Attending each training session is important to keep the swimmer from getting out of synch within a cycle. Being that good attendance is critical to conditioning which is the main contributor for race fitness and enables the swimmers body to learn to be its best, a swimmer should try to never miss a training session. All swimmers receive a Certificate of Participation and have the opportunity to earn further certifications. Endurance Swim Camp only develops and focuses on ones Endurance. Endurance Swim Camps are for ALL swimmers ALL Abilities age 6 years & up.
