We at the Minnesota Swim Camps believe foremost in good technique and fundamentals. We would like to utilize one of the finest technique products available, the front-mounted snorkel. The timing of the breath and the twisting of the body while taking a breath are both distracting and destructive when learning proper body balance. By using the front-mounted snorkel during a series of drills, the swimmer is free to focus on specific rehearsal points. The snorkel is highly recommended at camp, but optional. Campers with snorkels will utilize them during both technique and training sessions. Swimmers without snorkels will complete the same drills breathing to the side. If you are interested in purchasing a snorkel, please mark the appropriate box on the application and add $35 to your initial deposit.
Stroke Analysis Option
Only those campers that check the appropriate box on the Camp Application Form indicating they would like to have their Strokes analyzed will have this done. The Stroke Analysis Option will include Video with Stroke Analysis Voice Over and will include all four strokes. The cost is $50.
