Event Description

2022 BUTTERFLY CAMP

All swimmers must be registered through USA Swimming, with a USA Swim Club. Or, they can purchase a flex pass membership through Virginia Swimming.

At this camp you will learn to understand how to efficiently move your body through the water with every butterfly stroke.

  • The butterfly stroke is more about finding your rhythm than it is about strength. You will learn how to feel your stroke rhythm while still developing your power.
  • The importance of the body position in the butterfly stroke. You will learn to swim "taller" and "longer" than you ever thought you could.
  • The timing of your kick and where you place your breath are the most important part in order to not interrupt your rhythm.
  • The butterfly stroke starts at the core as every other stroke (your kick and pull) must stay connected through it.

You will have the opportunity to work with Olympic, World Championship and pan american coaches. You will also see demonstrations from former Olympic swimmers, World championship medallists and NCAA Champions.

By the end of our camps, our goal is to help you become a faster and more efficient swimmer in your butterfly stroke. For those swimmers that have attended our camps in the past, you will find the technique review helpful, while improving your conditioning.
