Peddie Swim Camp
coming Summer 2024
Are you ready to improve your swimming? We aim to help every swimmer from looking to hone technique, build endurance, or getting ready to train at the highest level! Register today for one or all weeks.
Each week of camp is geared toward experienced swimmers looking to take their strokes to the next level. The focus will be on all four strokes, preparing swimmers to get to that next level of performance in the water. Coaches will bring new and innovative drills to each day of camp to help fine tune an athlete's performance. All swimmers will spend time on starts and turns working on perfecting their transitions into and off the wall, getting off the blocks quickly and nailing those underwaters. We hope to see your swimmer in the pool this summer!
