STR SpeedWeek Swim Camps: Using Science to Improve Technique
2022 DATES HAVE NOT BEEN ANNOUNCED YET
In the morning classroom teaching session, swimmers learn specific cues to see and feel in order to swim like MONA, a biomechanical model of optimal technique. The following pool session includes deliberate training strategies to help swimmers optimize their technique – short strokes at a slow pace with lots of individual feedback.
In the afternoon, swimmers are tested in the pool and analyzed in class with Aquanex – our patented system that captures synchronized underwater video and hand force data. This scientific analysis is unlike anything else in the world of swimming, giving swimmers the information they need to refine their technique and make drastic time drops.
Each SpeedWeek is limited to 12 swimmers to ensure maximum individual attention by Dr. Rod Havriluk, world renowned biomechanist and technical expert. Dr. Havriluk is internationally recognized for his unique approach to accelerating skill learning and preventing shoulder injuries. He is widely published and frequently presents at conferences (ASCA, ASCTA, BMS, FINA, IOC, ISCA, USAS, USMS, USSSA). In 2015, he was selected by Swimming World magazine as one of the top ten impactful individuals in swimming.
