Ongoing Updates & Reminders

Fitter and Faster is coming to Indianapolis for a Summer Swim Camp Series that includes four weekends of two-day swim camps PLUS a video filming and analysis day! This camp will take place at the iconic IUPUI Natatorium in August and September.

Each of the weekend camps will go into detail on one stroke with an Olympian that specializes in that stroke. Then, participants have the opportunity to sign up for the video analysis where they can have one or all 4 strokes analyzed by Olympic coach Todd Schmitz, who was MISSY FRANKLIN'S coach!

This would be a great opportunity to prepare for the short course season.
