In The Zone Camp Delivers Lasting Impacts

In The Zone campers receive coaching from established synchro athletes, thanks to the USSSF

105 swimmers. Four camps. 12 athlete coaches. Improved skills. Greater love for synchronized swimming. Broadened horizons as to the opportunities synchro provides. That’s what we call impact!! The USSSF provided a $10,000 grant to In the Zone Synchro in 2017 to hold four two-day weekend training camps, one in each USA Synchro zone. Suffice it to say it was money well spent.

With help from the USSSF, In The Zone has been able to travel around the country helping over 100 athletes learn and grow this past year

In its application, In the Zone Synchro requested funding to “offer weekend camps in each of the zones” to bring elite instruction to athletes, many of whom could not have otherwise traveled to an expensive synchro camp. The four camps were taught by collegiate champions who demonstrated and taught skills to both swimmers and coaches. In addition to building skills from beginner to advanced levels, these camps offered elite national and international collegiate athletes the opportunity to gain hands-on coaching experience that many have now parlayed into coaching at the club level, continuing to reach and improve swimmers. “I believe the magic that happens at these camps has changed [the swimmers’, and college and club coaches’] lived and outlook on synchro,” said Carolyn Presbrey, In the Zone co-founder.

 

In the Zone first sowed its seeds of success in the North Zone, and wanted to grow that experience across the US. The USSSF believed this grant request from In the Zone not only delivered on several areas of the Foundation’s mission, including supporting grassroots development and providing educational opportunities for coaches and athletes, but also will continue to bear fruit in impacting our sport.
