Total Performance Swim Camps

What if you were told that the coach with the most NCAA National Championships, of any sport in any division, had designed a camp program that has proven to elevate swimming performance, while at the same time allowing for a safe and fun learning environment? We want to let you know that the Total Performance Swim Camps provides such a program to help you or your team vastly improve for next swim season.


Founder of Total Performance Swim Camps (TPSC), Jim Steen, has been the head swim coach at Kenyon College for 35 years. He has lead his teams to an amazing 54 NCAA titles while coaching numerous NCAA Champions, hundreds of All-Americans, and several Olympians. Since 1980, his formula for success and innovative ideas have been incorporated into a camp program that has seen over 10,000 participants from over 40 states and even 5 countries!


The cornerstone of the Total Performance Swim Camps is the dedication to the individual. The Comprehensive Camps place particular focus on stroke technique and effective training, which accommodates both the novice and highly-trained swimmer (ages 10 - 18). After all, to achieve Total Performance you can’t have just technique or just training.


Located on three beautiful small-residential college campuses at Kenyon College (OH), Calvin College (MI) and Colgate University (NY), Total Performance will utilize one of the most creative and analytic coaching staffs in the nation to ensure that your athletes will have a tremendous and productive camp experience. Coach Steen is joined by other top collegiate coaches like Dan Gelderloos (Calvin College), Bob Rueppel (Franklin & Marshall College) and Fernando Canales (Former Olympian and Colgate University) who will spearhead Total Performance camps at their respective institutions this June.

“I just wanted to say how impressed I am with the camp that I sent my daughter to. In each of her time trials yesterday she dropped time, in one 50 she dropped nearly 2 seconds. Furthermore she is begging to

go back next year. Job well done!
