This clinic is a great opportunity for swimmers to focus primarily on their stroke technique while learning coordination and balance of the four primary strokes; all while not concentrating on endurance or speed.

Clinics will include thorough instruction from the SWIFT Aquatics Coach Josh Newman; emphasizing proper form and technique. Swimmers will watch video of proper technique and there will be demonstrations of all strokes, drills and turns by coach and/ or swimmers.

The progression through the 4 strokes: stroke technique, reviewing drills, stroke components, starts, turns and finishes – is designed for those that already have a basic skill level and development of the four strokes. Swimmers must be able to complete 1 full length of the pool Freestyle and 1 of Backstroke. ***

What To Bring:

All groups are required to bring the following equipment to all sessions: Kickboard, pull buoy, Fins, Snorkel, water bottle and an extra towel and/or deck clothes/robe (we will be in and out of the water.)

Coaching Staff: Coach Josh Newman 

* A minimum of 5 swimmers must register for a group for us to proceed. We may combine or cancel groups of less than 5. Groups will be limited to 10 on a first come first serve basis. Please register with the group you have been in this past season.
** All fees will be paid in full at point of registration. No make up or reschedule of sessions offered.
