Camp Goals

Campers will learn training and technique methods developed by the Luther swimming team. While divided into sprint, mid-distance, and distance groups, campers will participate in workouts used by the Luther swimming team. Other areas covered will be dry-land training, nutrition for swimmers, and race preparation through the use of psychological skills (mental imagery). All campers will have significant opportunities for technical and cardiovascular growth. Camp staff will also use underwater video for monitoring and correcting swim strokes rather than working only on drills and technique. Elite camp will be developed for the campers to get an advanced boost to their training.

Campers’ Abilities

Campers must have experience swimming all four competitive strokes (backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly, and freestyle). A minimum of three years of competitive swimming (USS, YMCA, and/or high school) is required.
