4 week Swim Technique Clinic DescriptionWhether you're a new or experienced swimmer, you probably have realized how important technique and form is when swimming! Often, swimmers might be very fit and strong, but they struggle to make progress or improve performance in the water. Join us for a 4 week technique clinic where we will focus on the skills needed to be a more efficient, confident swimmer. Beginner to intermediate swimmers welcome, we will have multiple lanes, so there will be a place for you, whether you are new to swimming, or an experienced swimmer looking to tweak your technique to be faster and stronger.In this clinic, we will work on breathing, body position/streamlining, kicking, rotation and stroke.
Open Water Skills Clinic DescriptionIn the Northeast, it can be tough to make the transition from swimming in a pool through the winter to our early season open water or multisport events.  Join us for this clinic focusing on open water skills in the pool, so you can enter the water confidently this season. Remove the lane lines and the pool can be a great place to practice the skills needed to have your most comfortable and efficient swim in the open water. This is a great way to brush up your skills, get more comfortable swimming near others, and practice skills you're nervous about in a more controlled environment.
In this clinic, we will work on on race skills including "seeding" strategy, managing race anxiety/panic in the water, standing, treading water and deep water dock race starts, surging, passing, cornering, sighting, drafting and swimming in crowded/choppy waters.
