At Maximum Velocity Swimming, we are committed to providing the best swimming experience in the central Virginia region and beyond. Through our swim camps, clinics, and lessons, we have something to offer for everyone, from beginners to Senior National and Olympic Trials qualifiers.
Our summer swim camps in June are instructional based camps held onsite at Liberty University and provide technique instruction in all four strokes, basic racing techniques and strategies, and moderate to low training loads. The emphasis is on technique development and fun, fun, fun! Our camps are taught by Liberty University head swimming coach Jake Shellenberger and feature Liberty's Division I athletes as camp counselors and assistant coaches.
Our swim lesson program is geared towards beginners and are taught by members of Liberty's team and general campus. All of our lesson instructors have experience teaching swim lessons and there are lifeguards on duty at every session. Swimming is a fantastic lifelong sport and learning to swim is a skill that could save a life someday. If graduates of our lesson program want to continue in the sport the Lynchburg YMCA and Head Coach T.J. Liston offer a fantastic year round competitive program.
Our clinics are taught by Liberty head coach Jake Shellenberger and feature advanced technique, skill, and racing strategy instruction. Clinics with Coach Jake also provide the athlete with an introduction to high level, advanced college training sessions and equipment. Several aspects of high level performance are covered, including but not limited to - diet, mental strategies, strength training and conditioning, and flexibility. The clinics also make use of the Power Tower, pictured below, which is one of the best ways to transfer strength into swimming specific power in the water.
