Nick Thoman Championship Clinic
Nick Thoman Clinic
January 28th, 2012
Join World Record holder Nick Thoman and the TAQ staff for a one day clinic.  Our championship meets are right around the corner and this clinic will give each swimmer an opportunity to learn championship technique from a current World Record holder.  We will be covering technique for all four strokes, starts, and turns.  Swimmers will also have an opportunity to ask questions and learn how one our nation’s best swimmers prepares himself for competition mentally and physically!  This clinic is open to all ages and there is no charge!  Please RSVP with your coach before Friday.
