Navy Swim Camp

Expect direct results by being part of the 2018 Navy Swimming Camp this summer! We are going into our twenty-first season. Our principal goal is to provide you the very best in individual instruction, evaluation, camper experience and safety/supervision. The purpose of our camp is to offer you a unique environment to learn and develop your competitive strokes including all related starts, turns and finishes.

Navy Swimming Camp is a stroke-intensive camp, and all campers will receive individual attention. Additional training sessions are offered to all needing to maintain conditioning while at camp. Video analysis, dryland activities designed to improve individual fitness levels, performance, training, goal-setting, leadership presentations and the Severn River boat cruise are all part of the schedule for 2018. New in 2018: We are pleased to offer an advanced camp option during Session I!

Coach Dean Hutchinson returns to Annapolis in 2018 to lead aspiring swimmers through a three hour session on starts and turns.  Coach Hutchinson, who competed at Auburn University for legendary Coach David Marsh, does a terrific job with each participant.

A former volunteer coach for Navy, Coach Hutchinson remains active in the sport of competitive swimming in addition to serving as a physical therapist in New Jersey. Coach Hutchinson will make several take home points through the three hour session emphasizing the relevance and impact of a quality start and turn with your race.

This is a one session clinic that repeats itself on Sunday. Swimmers are permitted to attend consecutive sessions.  This clinic is limited to 50 participants per session.

NAVY Technique & Video Clinic 2: June 17th @ 9:00 a.m. – click HERE to register

With the popularity of the Aquanex+Video Clinic at Navy, we felt it was time to offer another video option different from the Aquanex clinic. This clinic is a combination of video and teaching. Swimmers are recorded upon arrival.  From there, coaches will lead swimmers though a teaching session covering all four strokes. Swimmers will receive a breakdown of their video after the clinic with some helpful instructions.

This clinic will be led by Navy coach Mark Liscinsky and a supporting staff.  As a former athlete, Coach Liscinsky was an IM and backstroke specialist and is excellent in teaching all four strokes. This clinic is limited to 25 participants per session and is scheduled for three hours in length.

NAVY Aquanex & Video Clinic 1: June 16th @ 2:00 p.m. – click HERE to register
NAVY Aquanex & Video Clinic 2: June 17th @ 9:00 a.m. – click HERE to register

Dr. Rod Havriluk returns with his one-of-a-kind video analysis program.  Swimmers are first tested in their top two strokes. Dr. Havriluk’s program goes beyond standard video review in that your swimmer will have a biomechanical force analysis reading that is coordinated to their video. Dr. Havriluk will then review the video and force analysis reading with your swimmer while making recommendations for improvement. Swimmers will receive a download of their video and force analysis for future use. To learn more about the process, visit https://swimmingtechnology.com

IMPORTANT NOTE: New in 2018, the Aquanex + Video clinic takes place on Saturday June 16 &/or Sunday June 17. This clinic will not coincide within the regular camp as it did in 2017.
