UBC Performance Swim Camp will include all facets of stroke mechanics and drills for all strokes, dives, starts and turns. The Camp will focus on the technical aspects of strokes, training, and physical conditioning. The different strokes will be reviewed, analyzed and corrective feedback will be provided throughout the week.
There will be two water workout sessions each day as well as related dryland strength and conditioning workouts. In-water sessions will be complemented by on-deck and/or classroom sessions that will address a wide variety of sport performance topics.
Overall, competitive swimmers will leave UBC Performance Swim Camp having refined their technique, learned new skills and feeling good about their approach to performance training.
This camp will be delivered by UBC Varsity Swimming with support from Super Fish Camps and Tom Johnson Swim Camps. We are proud to have Coleman Allen lead for this year. Coleman is a graduating member of the UBC Thunderbirds. He spent 4 years competing as a UBC Thunderbird (2012-2013, 2013-2014, 2014-2015, 2016-2017) and as a member of Swimming Canada’s National Team (2012-2015) and currently holds two Senior National Records in the 50 & 100 Butterfly (SCM). Having swam under the direction of both Steve Price and Tom Johnson, Coleman is well equipped with technical knowledge and elite experience.
