San Diego Imperial Swimming had a very successful Swimposium and Catch the Spirit camp this past October.

During Saturday’s Swimposium, athletes had the opportunity to meet and swim with Olympians Jason Lezak and Caitlin Leverenz.  In the water activities included technique and stroke work. Swimmers even had the chance to race against Leverenz in all four strokes.  Coaches, parents, and Officials also benefitted from talks and clinics given throughout the day by Ron Van Pool, David Benzel, Scott Colby, and our own Dan Peck.

Sunday’s Catch the Spirit camp proved beneficial to our swimmers. Led by Coach Kevin Eslinger and other local coaches, athletes learned new drills and ways to approach their starts and turns. Friendships developed in athletes across the county as they became united and gained a greater love for the sport of swimming.

Overall, the weekend ended in triumph and showed the future is great for San Diego Imperial Swimming. A huge thanks to those who participated and an even greater thanks to those who gave up their time and made the event possible. Included are some photos from the event taken by one of our athlete volunteers, Chris E.
