2019 Swim Smooth/CBCG Hood River Swim Camp October 19-20, 2019

Get Off your Swim Plateau!

Come join us in Hood River, Oregon, for our second 2019 CBCG Swim Camp. You’ll get four sessions over two days and classroom time to learn more about yourself as a swimmer. We videotape you and give you a full video analysis, test you for both optimal stroke rate and critical swimming speed (CSS) pace, and tell you how to set up your swimming week when you get back home. You’ll be swimming with greater efficiency and ease in the water, resulting in quicker times in your swim (both pool and open water) AND improved freshness when exiting the water.

  • 2-day camp, October 19-20, 2019

  • FOUR sessions over two days (you’ll be tired, but faster!)

  • Classroom session for stroke analysis

  • Video analysis of your swim stroke

  • Critical Swim Speed (like threshold power on the bike)

  • Great training in the nearby orchards and country roads of Hood River, OR

We’ve been running camps for a decade, and we know how to send you home faster and happier.

The swim is the most technical aspect of triathlon, more akin to golf than cycling or running, we like to say. Without knowing what you’re doing in the water, there’s very little you can do to improve it. When you come to our swim camp, you’ll get:

  • A detailed video swim analysis, like this one

  • An understanding of your Critical Swimming Speed (CSS), which is similar to FTP on the bike or threshold pace on the run

  • A sense of what stroke rate is best for you, and what “Swim Type” you are, courtesy of Swim Smooth.

  • FOUR sessions over two days: a technique/videotaping workout, a harder tempo/threshold workout, an “open water in the pool” workout, and a “specific endurance” style session, equipping you with the tools necessary to train effectively on your own

  • The opportunity to ask CGCG coaches questions about swim technique in a seminar-style classroom

  • Sessions at the beautiful Hood River Aquatic Center in Hood River, Oregon

  • A chance to tune up your swim technique for your fall racing season


Schedule

Saturday (Day One)

8-10am—session one: threshold testing, CSS swimming, and videotaping
10am-12pm—classroom: video analysis of your stroke in a group setting, which helps you see that all swimmers are different, which is the Swim Smooth way!
12-2pm—session two: introduction to the Swim Smooth primary drills

Sunday (Day Two)

8-10am—session three: stroke correction session and technique/endurance session
10am-12pm—a much needed break!
12-2pm—session four: the mysterious and effective Red Mist Set!

If that sounds like something you need, then head here to sign up! We are limiting camp to eight participants, so make this a priority if improving your swim is something that interests you this winter!
