Swim camp for KIF and pre-teens starts Monday

Registration for high school swimmers and pre-teen swimmers is being accepted for the Mokihana Aquatics Fall Competitive Swim Camp.

Mokihana Aquatics head coach Orlando “O” Anaya said the camp is geared for high school swimmers preparing for the Kauai Interscholastic Federation swim season, which starts in November.

Pre-teens who are at least 11 years old and have the ability to swim 500 yards of any stroke, non-stop or 10 minutes, are welcome to participate in the camp. The camp will start Oct. 7 and continue through Oct. 12 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Kauai High School pool. During the week, there will be one day, Oct. 9, dedicated to open ocean long distance swimming, which will be taught at Kalapaki Beach.

“The last time we did this camp was about 15 years ago,” Anaya said. “The turnout was great with almost all of the KIF swimmers participating.”

Anaya said during the camp, swimmers will learn the four competitive racing strokes, racing starts and turns, visualization and dryland training and more.

There will be professional coaches’ analysis of each swimmer’s performance and a videographer will be getting swimmers on video for instructional purposes.

Swimmers will also participate in mock swim meets and have the opportunity to make new friends in the swimming arena.

Registration fee is $150 per swimmer. Swimmers must provide daily lunch, snacks and water for the camp.
