Camp Philosophy

Kelly Kremer THE GOAL of the Minnesota Swim Camp is to help build a solid foundation for girls and boys to achieve the highest level of performance. Age-group and Training camp participants will have numerous opportunities to learn, practice and have fun. An athlete must realize the importance of stroke technique, training, nutrition, mental preparation, etc., the key components of swimming excellence.

We provide an environment in which these principles are taught in a positive way. The goals of the coaching staff are teaching the correct and fastest methods for all strokes, starts, turns and finishes. The actual amount of the different forms of instruction will be based on the age and experience of each camper. The camp will be held at the beautiful UM Aquatic Center and the historic Cooke Hall pools. There will be a balanced blend of long course and short course training. Swimmers leaving this camp will have an enhanced perspective about the sport and greater knowledge of the steps necessary in achieving their goals.
