STR SpeedWeek Swim Camps: Using science to improve technique

Are you:

  • serious about improving your technique?
  • looking for a significant time drop?

  • ready to compete at the next level?

If you are, then an STR Speedweek is your best swim camp option for 2019!

About Swimming Technology Research (STR) Camps

At an STR SpeedWeek, swimmers undergo intensive technique analysis using the patented Aquanex system to capture synchronized underwater video and hand force data on all four strokes. This science-based analysis is unlike anything else in the world of swimming, giving swimmers the tools to fine-tune their technique and make drastic time drops.

SpeedWeek is not just another week of training – it is a week of optimizing technique, preventing shoulder injuries, and accelerating skill learning.  During camp, swimmers will do short swims where the emphasis on technique allows you to make needed changes – changes based on scientific data rather than opinion. Each swimmer receives individual feedback and is taught specific practice strategies, so he/she can continue to improve on return to normal training.   Each SpeedWeek is limited to 12 swimmers to ensure maximum individual attention.

Camp Details

STR SpeedWeeks accommodate all levels of competitive swimmers (recommended for swimmers ages 10 and up). Our analysis procedures and instructional strategies are backed by well-documented results and data collected over thousands of trials with swimmers of all ages and ability levels, from age group to elite performers. We teach ONLY scientifically-proven swimming technique elements. STR’s unique combination of instructional strategies and proven analysis technology gives immediate and accurate information for swimmers, coaches and parents –so swimmers can more easily understand a change and why it’s needed.
