CURRICULUM:

An effective way for fast swimmers to get even faster is to practice their starts and turns in every practice and race. Olympian Cammile Adams will teach you the key components to enhance your overall race performance!


OPEN TURNS: Why is short course faster than long course? The walls!!! In this high performance clinic you will learn the intricacies of how to get in and out of the flags faster than ever. It may require more toughness and focus but it will pay off!

  • APPROACH: Know how to anticipate the turn by understanding how and when to adjust your stroke so you touch at the end of a full stroke cycle rather than too short or long.

  • ROTATION: Getting from fingertips to feet touching the wall is simply half of a backwards somersault! Learn how to create that rotation using your head, core and knee drive.

  • FOOT/HAND PLANT: You are probably consistent at touching with two hands simultaneously but, do you know the feet should plant shoulder width apart and at a 45 degree angle for the best push off? Cammile Adams will show you why.

FLAT STARTS: Set the tone for a great race with a powerful, streamlined and fast start. There are countless intricacies to performing a great start and you only get better with practice. Olympian Cammile Adams will teach you some of his favorite strategies on how to execute this explosive and athletic movement.

  • HAND PLACEMENT: Know exactly where to place your hands so that you can pull with your arms on the start.

  • FOOT PLACEMENT: Everyone's foot placement might be a bit different but Cammile Adams will teach you how to figure out what is best for you to gain both stability on the block and explosive power when leaving the block.

  • REACTION TIME: The quicker you react the quicker you'll get in the water! Learn the secrets of improving your reaction time. Practice drills for a faster reaction time off the blocks

  • BODY LINE/ENTRY: How you enter the water is just as important as how explosive you are off the blocks - all the power you created will be for nothing if you don't carry that speed forward.

UNDERWATER DOLPHIN KICKING: Absolutely, undeniably, the fastest way to move through the water! Whether you dolphin kick on your stomach, side or back, understanding the importance of streamlined, underwater speed is vital for every swimmer!
  • BODY POSITION: The simplest way to maintain your speed is a TIGHT STREAMLINE! Our world-class athletes will reinforce to you why they NEVER take streamlining for granted. Every fast swimmer must look like a rocket when they push off the wall!
  • CORE DRIVE: Not a single great dolphin kicker kicks from their knees down! Our clinician will instruct you on how to engage your kick from the core, utilizing your chest press and hip drive to create a fluid undulating motion.
  • KICK COUNT/FREQUENCY: Take advantage of every single kick for better training and racing! Learn to use the up AND down portion of the dolphin kick for better distance per kick.
ASK QUESTIONS: Swimmers and parents are invited to ask Cammile Adams questions during a Q&A session. Gain insight into her training regimen, diet and nutrition, as well as recovery methods.

WATCH THE CLINICIAN: Observe Cammile as she swims at full speed and demonstrates a progression of perfectly executed drills to achieve powerful, efficient and fast swimming.

GET UP AND RACE: Race Cammile, one of the world’s best swimmers, and watch her near-flawless technique — achieved by practicing the same drills he will teach you.
