Competitive Swimming Camps- resident and commuter
All three swimming weeks feature stroke technique camps. The second session will be the sprint and distance camp, which emphasizes conditioning and proper training of the major energy systems along with race strategies for sprint, middle distance, and distance events.
The stroke technique camps enable competitive swimmers to develop skills and techniques in starts, turns, individual medley, and competitive strokes. Enrollment limit guarantees individual attention (1 to 5 ratio, staff to camper; maximum enrollment is 80 campers).
Designed for serious swimmers, the camp teaches the latest in swimming techniques in a fun-filled setting. Time is provided for relaxation and the program includes a pizza and movie night, an Oneonta Outlaws baseball game, Hartwick swim camp survivor, and a trip to a local state park.
The camp will help swimmers learn the mental and physical aspects of meet preparation, as well as all the new technical aspects of competitive swimming (strokes, starts and turns). Training includes lactose tolerance, anaerobic threshold, maximum oxygen consumption, and speed and race pace training. Campers, nine and under, follow the same schedule with a more relaxed, fun-filled approach by a specific coach. The camp also focuses on the psychology of swimming, nutrition, dry-land training, weight training, relaxation, and visualization. Individual stroke work and analysis of above- and below-water DVD are also part of the schedule.
In its 40th summer, the Hartwick College competitive swimming camps are set to provide male and female swimmers ages 8 to 18 an opportunity to develop skills and techniques under the guidance of a highly trained coaching staff. Special two- and three-week sessions are available.
Respected USS, YMCA, high school and college coaches provide individual guidance and instruction during the camp, with written critiques in each campers log book and individual analysis of above and underwater videotaping of each stroke. National and Olympic-level swimmers and coaches will be on hand and serve as guest speakers.
