Eindhoven Start-Turn-Finish Clinic
Eindhoven Netherlands
Pieter v/d Hoogenband
Swimming stadium Eindhoven Netherlands

Eindhoven Start-Turn-Finish Clinic covers 30% of a swimming race in a 50m pool. In a 25m pool this percentage is even higher. This is why it is so important to focus on start, turns and finishing. Guided by top swimmers/coaches all starts and turns will be trained during this 3-day swim clinic SportstarZ has developed.

SportstarZ introduces a start & turn analysis to optimise starts and turns. These skills will be recorded with one camera above and three cameras underneath the water surface (high speed camera system). The swimmer will be traced from the starting block till the 15m point. The images will then be analysed with our advanced start & turns analysis program. Through these analysis data is calculated such as take off angle, dive angle and the depth curve. Based on this information the swimmer will receive specific instructions to improve one’s start. Besides the measurement results and the individual improvement instructions swimmers receive cloud storage with their images and a detailed analysis with all data and instructions to improve one’s start.

Likeall our camps also during this 3-day special we believe: ‘Performance comes with pleasure’. In our opinion it’s important to enjoy your sport. Only if you have fun in swimming you have a chance to succeed. This is why, beside serious training, there’s also enough time to make new friends and enjoy many fun recreational activities. Twice a day we train in Europe’s largest and most beautiful swimming pool the “Pieter van de Hoogenband Swimming stadium” in Eindhoven. This high-tech swimming complex is the home base for national top-class swimming athletes and numerous swimming clubs.

't Uilenest

On 20 minutes from the pool our swimmers lodge in guest house ‘t Uilenest’, our beautiful accommodation in the greenery of ‘Geldrop’. After swimming it is a great place to spend our free time. Our guest house is wonderfully situated in the country side with plenty of space to enjoy ourselves. Of course, besides the beautiful surroundings there’s enough to undertake on the site itself. Every night we offer various fun (sports) activities. During this camp we even play exiting kids-paintball in our own paintball forest.

The boys and girls sleep separately in cosy dormitories in comfortable bunk beds. At night our staff members make sure everyone is able to enjoy the necessary sleep to start their new training day in good spirit. Intensive training increases your appetite. That’s why we offer our participants every day two bread meals and a firm warm evening dish, which will give us the necessary energy we need.
