Our Intro To Competitive Swimming is designed to inspire and teach swimmers who are beginner swimmers. It is recommended that participants of the Intro To Competitive Swimming camp are able to swim one lap of each stroke. Campers are not required to have participated previously on an organized team. The intent of Intro To Competitive Swimming is to develop each stroke under the guidance and experience of some of the best college coaches in the country! The camp will approach the training session from a beginners standpoint, helping younger athletes who know how to swim, continue to master the basics and taking new steps to learn more challenging swimming skills.
Each camper will receive a Pittsburgh Swim Camp t-shirt and cap!
Camp 1: Monday, June 17 - Thursday, June 20
Camp 2: Monday, June 24 - Thursday, June 27
Recommended for Boys & Girls Ages 7 & Older, Or Knows Basics of All Four Strokes, First or Second Year of Team Swimming
STROKE VIDEO ANALYSIS
New and improved video analysis for all campers is available! The video will include a review of all four strokes, underwater kick, surface kick, open and freestyle turns and a start. Each personalized video will be professionally edited and analyzed by the University of Pittsburgh Varsity coaches. Each camper will received a digital copy of their stroke analysis.
