Camp check in is from 2-4 pm on Sunday afternoon. The first session begins at 6:30 pm on Sunday and the last session ends at 11 am on Thursday. There are two different training tracts that make up the Michigan Swim Camp: the Technique Tract and the Intensive Tract. Please read below for a more detailed description of these two camp options. The Technique Tract (4-6,000 yds./day) is designed for individual and group instruction in fundamental and advanced stroke skills, and start and turn techniques. The Technique Tract is primarily a skill acquisition curriculum, which begins with basic body balance and progresses to swimming with maximum efficiency (i.e. fewest number of strokes per length). Starts, turns, Gambetta dryland training, pacing, nutrition, team building, and mental training are part of this comprehensive curriculum. Swimmers are filmed daily and their HD video is viewed and critiqued in written form every day. This tract is designed for: the younger swimmer (12 and under) who has a need to form excellent skill foundations; the older swimmer who is relatively new to the sport and needs to gain a higher efficiency level; and the skilled swimmer who needs a week of fine tuning without the added stress of an intense training. The Intensive Tract (~12,000 yds./day) is designed for swimmers 13 and over who are already in shape. This option includes 2 water workouts, and 1 dryland workout daily. Threshold, VO2max, lactate tolerance, and maximal speed workouts are all part of the training program. Technique is addressed in every swim session. The evening session is a dryland training session with an emphasis on core strength and overall fitness. Swimmers are videoed and each swimmer receives a written stroke critique. The Intensive Tract is recommeded for swimmers 13 years and older with good foundational skills who are in shape, training at full capacity, and can handle the workload.
