California (PA) Swim Camp - Update 6/20/11

This is part of a continuing series as we will follow five swimmers from Jersey Shore and Lock Haven  to see how they fare at the California (PA) Swim Camp.

Emma B - Today in our stroke breakdown we practiced on freestyle. They said you should have this power triad and that is:
1. Entry
2. Roll
3. Catch
they also said to glide and to reach

Sam K-We are given lots of free time so we are having a Pizza Party

Kendra W- They said that the arm that you took a stroke with cannot pass the left or right side. Say that I took a right armed stroke, then I can't pass the right side of my body

McCartney R-Today's theme was freestyle. This morning we had a classroom session and we broke down freestyle. The coach taught us ways that doing a stroke wrong can give you injuries (i.e. shoulders). Then we got into the pool and worked on rolling your body as you swim. Everytime we were in the pool today, we worked on freestyle. Tomorrow we will work on a different stroke.
Gabbie M - Today for breakfast we could have bagels, toast, eggs, sausage, hash browns, and lots of fruit. Then, for lunch you had the selection of subs, hotdogs, hamburgers, french fries, PB+J sandwiches, cookies, cupcakes, and again fruit. Finally for dinner we had the choice of pasta, roast beef, baked potato,subs, ham, and lots more.
P.S. There was a really mean lunch lady serving pasta.
