2019 Stroke Clinic 2
Session 2 of the Stroke Clinic will run from March 11th through April 11th.
This program is open to swimmers over 6 years of age, provided that they are comfortable in the water and able to complete the minimum requirements listed below. The clinic is run from 6:00-7:00 pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings each week.
The clinic is organized in levels with the goal to “graduate” the swimmer to the next level by the end of the session. Swimmers graduating from Level 2 are encouraged to continue training with WCAC as part of the USA Swimming Program.
Each week of the session will be broken down with a different focus. All weeks will include a review of what was learned in previous weeks as well as proper technique for starts, turns and finishes for that specific stroke:
