Swim Stroke Enhancement
Rising 1st – Rising 6th Graders
July 29 – Aug. 2 • 1 – 4 p.m.
Collegiate School Aquatic Center
Campers should bring a bathing suit, towel, change of clothes, snack and filled water bottle each day.
With the summer season winding down, this is a great opportunity to get a little more work in the water. It may be that there were some strokes that were not quite mastered, or you aren’t sure about swimming in the winter and want a bit more experience to help with the decision. This individualized camp will focus on stroke technique in a fun environment to help get swimmers excited about seasons to come. Limited to a maximum 1:6 coach-to-swimmer ratio, sessions will focus on stroke technique in the four competitive strokes. Swimmers should have experience swimming with a team, but do not need to be proficient in all four strokes. Instructors will work on deck and in the water with swimmers to help improve all areas of their swimming.
Pick-up and drop-off for this camp will be at Luck Hall, located on Collegiate’s Lower School side of campus. Campers will be transported to and from CSAC in a Collegiate bus driven by Collegiate faculty.
