GUNNISON, Colo. – Swimmers and divers are invited to train in the highest collegiate facilities in the nation with the Altitude Training Camp and Technique Training Camp this summer. Western State College Head Women's Swimming and Diving Coach Brad Smith will conduct both camps in the swimming pool in Paul Wright Gym.
The Altitude Training Camp for ages 13-18 will take place July 8-12, and will offer a progressive system to educate swimmers on training principles and stroke efficiency while developing strength, speed and endurance. The camp will also cover race strategy, dryland training, goal setting and educational sessions on nutrition.
The Technique Training Camp for ages 10-18 will take place July 29 through Aug. 2, and is designed to teach skills and drills focused on perfecting stroke and biomechanics in an easy to understand and progressive system of development. The camp will provide an introduction to dryland training and education for rest and recovery.
The rate for overnight campers for both camps is $300, and covers lodging and meal costs on the Western State campus. Commuter campers can participate for $200, and each additional family member can receive $25 off the camp rate. Teams with 10 or more overnight participant can also receive $50 per athlete.
The 2012-13 season will be the first year for Mountaineer swimming since the program was discontinued after the 1984 season. Western State won three RMAC championships and finished with 32 All-Americans in the early 1980s.
