North West Regional Camp November 27-28, 2010
Prince Rupert was host to the North West Regional Training Camp held November 27 and 28. Regional Technical Coach Mike Flegel and Provincial Coach Vince Mikuska travelled to Prince Rupert to work with 21 swimmers from Prince Rupert, Terrace and Kitimat. Patrick Waters from the Northern Pacific Sport Center was again on hand to present information on nutrition and sports psychology.
Callum Ng, former 2-time CIS swimmer of the year with the UBC Thunderbirds, gave the swimmers informative sessions filled with stories and advice from his career as well as a slide show from the Youth Olympics held this past summer. It was great to have Callum and Patrick get in the water for some live demonstrations to augment the stroke videos shown by Coach Flegel.
Once again the camp focused around five “big” ideas, POSTURE, ANCHOR, FISH KICK, RECOVERY AND ACCELERATION. The swimmers were a great group of enthusiastic learners.
