WALNUT CREEK MASTERS                                                                                         
March 3-5, 2017

Sanctioned by Pacific Masters Swimming for United States Masters Swimming

This training camp is 2-1/2 days dedicated to enhancing your competitive swimming performance through strenuous conditioning, stroke and distance specificity, and stroke technique instruction, all in an atmosphere conducive to serious swim training.

There will be two in-water training sessions per day.  The morning practice will be a general conditioning session, with afternoon sessions split into Distance Mid-Distance, and Sprint specialties.  Mid-Distance and Sprint practices will be very accommodating to both freestyle and all non-free strokes.  Here the coaching staff will strive to meet your specific needs in training for your best events. 

Each morning session will conclude with a hearty breakfast.

Optional Stroke Schools will be conducted Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday.

*****TriLabs will supply all our underwater videotaping, the absolute best look at your stroke mechanics. The ITC staff will provide comprehensive analysis during the camp, and you will be given the opportunity to download your video when you get home.

Other camp highlights include lectures, and, at a nominal cost, massages and a Saturday camp dinner.

The 2017 Coaching Staff will consist of:

  • Kerry O’Brien, Mike Heaney, Debbie Santos, Steve Stahl and Lisa Ward, coaching staff of the World Champion and USMS Team of the Year Walnut Creek Masters
  • Cokie Lepinski, Head coach of Swymnut Masters and 2014 USMS Coach of the Year
  • Brian Stack, Head Coach of the Manatee Masters and the 1997 Pacific Masters Coach of the Year
  • Sunny Blende, Sports Nutritionist and contributor to the USMS Swimmer Magazine
The ITC is not the place to begin your training, but to continue it at perhaps a higher level.  By registering, you are confirming the fact that you are in good physical health, have been competitively training for at least 8 weeks, and are capable of training twice per day (approximately 6,000 to 8,000 yards).

The ITC is open to all 2017 USMS registered swimmers.  Applications will be taken on a “First Come” basis.  Space will be limited to 50 participants.  The fee for the camp is $300.00.  Saturday night optional camp dinner and optional massage are additional. Online entry is paid by credit card to ClubAssistant.com Events.
