Peak Performance Swim Camp is offering a speed camp in Des Moines, Iowa, to jump start your summer swimming season! Our 2-day START & STROKE CAMP provides two levels of specialized training for 12 & Over and 11 & Under swimmers. PEAK coaches are masters at teaching racing techniques, and our one-on-one attention provided to each swimmer sets PEAK apart from the rest. If speed is what you seek, come to PEAK!
START & STROKE CAMP
For competitive swimmers ages 9-18.
Our 2-day Start & Stroke Camp spends equal time training fast starts and efficient strokes.
Starts are often a weak link in competitive racing and cost vital seconds, but we have the solution! Our PEAK start progressions add speed and distance off the block, and can turn a slow start into a winning one. In the stroke training, we focus on key elite techniques common to Olympians, including MDPS (Maximum Distance Per Stroke) and MSR (Maximum Stroke Rate).
Note: Swimmers are assigned to lanes based on ability level. The daily skill progressions and challenging swim sets are adjusted to reflect skill and performance levels.
