DESCRIPTION:
Kailua-Kona offers some of the best open water swimming in Hawaii.  Join us for this beginner to intermediate swim camp. The purpose of this camp is to introduce pool swimmers to open water, whether to prepare for your first triathlon or to gain the comfort and confidence to enjoy vacations at the shore.  We will be swimming twice a day in the beautiful blue waters of the Big Island in the quiet town of Kailua- Kona.  Use this time to introduce yourself to open water with a supportive group of swimmers and well experienced coaches.  Each day will include one session on skills and some technique drills and a second session will be an open water swim that will gradually extend as the week progresses.  Each swim session will also include instruction and focal points to help develop a better understanding of swim training. The philosophy here is Kaizen swimming—continuous improvement, by setting your intention at getting better with at least one swim skill by the end of each swim session.  We recognize that nothing is ever perfect, but we will stretch your limits a bit further each day to help build your confidence as you continue to work on your stroke with stroke thoughts.  You will deliberately chose to swim with purpose — to be a better swimmer.  By being better at swimming skills, balance, streamline and propulsion, you have then learned the ability to swim with ease.
