Bobcat Swim Camp at Bates College
Primary Stroke Camp
For the High School Camper focused on swimming in college, we have the Primary Stroke Camp and/or the Start and Turn Camp. These are three day camps which are very specialized for campers 13 and older.
At the Primary Stroke camp you will spend the entire time with one college coach focusing primarily on one stroke - and it is your choice! Each Head Coach will be assigned a stroke and will share all their insights on technique, training, and race strategy with their group.
Each swimmer will be video recorded in their chosen stroke (above and below water) on the first day. Campers will be assigned to a group, according to skill level, age, and athletic ability. Throughout the camp a college coach will critique each camper’s stroke and meet with them one on one. Our camper to staff ratio is approximately five to one. Also, each day will include:
A minimum of two daily pool sessions, including one devoted mostly to drills and technique
Classroom sessions on technique, strategy, and wall work
One-on-one critique sessions of individual camper’s stroke
Daily discussions on many of the latest topics and ideas pertaining to each stroke
As usual we will limit enrollment in order to keep our numbers in a range where instruction is paramount - and the personal touch remains (approximately 90 campers each session).
