What is Race Pace Training?

USRPT stands for Ultra-Short Race Pace Training. The best way to train the body for an activity (especially a complex one) is to replicate that activity as closely as possible. This is known as the principle of specificity. With this principle in mind, our USRPT swim coaches design sets with a very specific pace and race in mind which allows the swimmer to develop an innate understanding and feel for specific races.  This neuromuscular training is invaluable as it trains their body’s energy systems accordingly. Learn more about USRPT.

Help Swimmers Train Through Winter

It's deductible! Rain or shine, sleet or snow, Sedona swimmers and their dedicated swim coaches spend up to 16+ hours each week in the pool pursuing athletic goals such as breaking state records and gaining college scholarships all while having a ton of fun. In order to use the Sedona Community Pool through the winter, our swim team must pay to heat and maintain the pool which costs several hundreds of dollars each month.

Friends, family, and community members, please consider helping our athletes in Sedona swim year-round with a tax-deductible donation to Sailfish Sport Project, our 501C3 charitable organization. Use the link at the right under "HEAT THE POOL" to donate now!

Little Swimmers Learn & Have Fun!

Technique is our primary goal for our littlest swimmers. It's counterproductive to reinforce ineffective patterns so we build a young swimmer's stroke pattern using games, drills, relays, and kicking in conjunction with race pace sets.

About Race Pace Club AZ

Race Pace Club AZ (RPC) is a year-round swim team in the Verde Valley, Camp Verde and Sedona, Arizona serving youth ages 5 to 18, collegiate swimmers, masters swimmers, and pre-team novice swimmers.

We are proud affiliates of USA Swimming. Our expert USRPT coaching staff led by Head Coach Sean Emery provide personalized swim training to help each swimmer perfect their strokes and reach his or her full potential both in and out of the pool. Swimmers get to experience improvements through game-like sets, individualized feedback, dryland fitness training, and participation in swim meets ranging from novice to international competitions.

Experience an Athletic Awakening with USRPT Training:

While the average swim team practices physiology as the No. 1 blanket principle, our approach works better and faster because we prioritize the principles of specificity, individuality, and recovery in the optimal order of USRPT training which is 1.) Technique, 2.) Psychology, and 3.) Physiology. 

Our practices accommodate swimmers from across the Verde Valley — Sedona, Village of Oak Creek,  Clarkdale, Cottonwood, Rimrock, Cornville, Camp Verde — and from as far away as Flagstaff.
