A Day At Swim Camp

See us in action! Olympic-level coaching, state-of-the-art swimming technique, fun overnight activities, and so much more.

Peak Performance Swim Camp is coming to Chicago before the holiday break to offer a speed camp for competitive swimmers. Our 2-day RACE CAMP provides two levels of specialized training for 12 & Over and 11 & Under athletes. PEAK coaches are masters at teaching racing techniques. If speed is what you seek, come to PEAK!

For competitive swimmers ages 8-18.

Our 2-day Race Camp focuses on excellence in racing! How swimmers perform in competition determines their ultimate success in swimming. Hard-nosed training matters, but smart-tough racing matters more. At PEAK Race Camps, we specialize in teaching the mental, technical, and physical skills to help swimmers excel where it matters most!

Our Race Camp curriculum includes:

  • Various focus and mental toughness simulations to sharpen the mental edge.
  • Race rehearsals to heighten the competitive spirit and teach the ideal racing strategy for all distances.
  • Technical stroke refinement.
  • Power, flexibility, and skill drills to quicken all starts and turns.
  • Plus plenty of head-to-head racing!

Note: This is NOT a learn-to-swim program, but specifically designed for competitive swimmers who can perform multiple lengths of all four strokes and the official starts and turns. Swimmers at camp are assigned to lanes based on ability level. The daily skill progressions and challenging swim sets are adjusted to reflect skill and performance levels.

The schedule below outlines a sample agenda for the day.

  • 8:45 AM       –     Daily Sign-In
  • 9:00 AM       –     Dry-Land
  • 10:00 AM    –     Pool Session 1
  • 12:00 PM    –     Lunch (Bring Your Own)
  • 12:30 PM    –     Mind Power Workshop
  • 1:00 PM       –     Pool Session 2
  • 3:00 PM       –     Daily Sign Out

The daily curriculum includes two in-water training sessions (2 hours each),  dry-land, and motivational mental skills training. The combined PEAK experience toughens swimmers mentally, boosts fitness and confidence, and improves essential swimming skills.
