March Age Group Swim Clinic Offerings
(this is a team hosted event)
Good Afternoon LAKE Swim Families,
Congratulations to all swimmers for a fun and fast winter swim season. I hope you are all enjoying your swim break. For those that competed at the 12 and under state meet, job well done!
We are excited to once again offer swim clinic options for the age group swimmers over the swim team break. The next swim season does not begin until April 1st and the clinics are a great time to work on technique, fine tune starts and turns and stay in swim shape. I will be running clinics for swimmers entering or are currently in the AG silver, gold and junior groups. Coach Aiden will be offering clinics for swimmers in the AG silver, bronze and super 8 groups. He will be sending out a seperate email with more information. All clinics will be staffed by the age group coaches. I will have a special guest at each of the clinics I am offering.
All Clinics will be held at AHS Pool
I will be running 3 clinic options. All clinics will have a conditioning and stroke technique component to them. Choose one, two or all three. The cost is $40 a week or $100 for all 3 weeks. Below is a description of each
