Description

Two-Day Swim Camp - Sign up for one or BOTH days!

Did you know that the fastest that your swimmer is ever moving in the water is during the streamline after the start and after every turn? There's a huge opportunity for your swimmer to capitalize on this speed and maintain their momentum into the breakout. This camp is all about maximizing your swimmer's speed from the moment their feet leave the wall through their breakout in all 4 strokes.

Your clinician will be Elite Clinician and five-time Olympian Brett Hawke! Brett was in the Olympics twice as a swimmer and three times as a coach. Scroll down to read more about the curriculum.

SESSION 1 & 2: Freestyle and Backstroke Pushoff to Breakout

The speed that your swimmer has after they push off the wall can easily go to waste if they don't have the proper technique to maintain their momentum into the first three strokes of freestyle and backstroke. This session focuses on establishing a strong streamline, aggressive underwater dolphin kicks, and explosive freestyle and backstroke breakouts.

  • STREAMLINE: A good streamline is all about eliminating as much drag as possible to move through the water faster. Very few swimmers actually know how to streamline correctly. Your swimmer should be fully engaged from fingertips to toe tips with a strong core and proper body alignment. Brett Hawke will work with each swimmer to not only understand the techniques needed to have the best streamline possible, but he will also help the participants FEEL what it's like to move through the water with less drag.

  • UNDERWATER DOLPHIN KICKING: Elite level swimmers have learned that they are faster underwater than they are on the surface... with the proper technique. They've figured out how to weaponize their underwater dolphin kicking to set themselves apart from the crowd by going 15 meters (the maximum distance you're allowed to go) every time! Attaining this speed is not as hard as you think. It takes the right technique, focus, and practice, but your swimmer can do it too! Learn from one of the best coaches in the world in these sessions and get closer to achieving the dolphin kick of your dreams!

  • FREESTYLE AND BACKSTROKE BREAKOUTS: Don't overlook the breakout! Both the timing and technique of the breakout are equally important to be able to maintain the momentum from the underwater dolphin kick into the first few strokes of swimming freestyle and backstroke. Your swimmer will work on keeping their head in line as they transition into their flutter kickand they'll practice taking their first stroke with power and efficiency as they break the surface tension to launch themselves forward.

SESSIONS 3 & 4: Butterfly and Breaststroke Pushoff to Breakout

When the fastest swimmers in the world push off the wall in butterfly and breaststroke races, their goal is to maintain the momentum from the pushoff and then accelerate into their breakout so that the first 3 strokes are at maximum speed! At these sessions, Olympic swimmer and coach Brett Hawke will work with the swimmers to find ways to maximize their breaststroke pullout as well as the first few strokes in butterfly and breaststroke races.

  • BREASTSTROKE PULLOUTS: The breaststroke pullout is a challenging skill to master due to the importance of patience and timing. If your swimmer completes each step too slowly or too quickly, they'll lose momentum. There is a fine line between breaking your bodyline too soon and slowing down. Your swimmer will finetune their technique as well as their timing on when to engage the dolphin kick and how long to hold each glide phase from Brett Hawke.

  • BUTTERFLY AND BREASTSTROKE BREAKOUTS: In both butterfly and breaststroke breakouts, it is important to breakout with the proper body position with hips high in the water. If the assent is too steep, your swimmer will drag their hips through the first few strokes. Brett will work participants in these sessions to breakout faster in fly and breast races!
