ARETE Spring Super-Strokes & Skills Clinics APRIL 22, May 6, 13 & 20, 2018

The Raritan Bay Y is our best facility we've ever had for our clinics.  

Instruction: Three-time USA National Team Coach Chuck Warner will be the lead instructor for each clinic.

Facility: We will be utilizing both the main competition pool and the warm water  pool for our clinics. This will allow our youngest swimmers (primarily 9 an under) to do most of their stroke and turn work in the warm water but have the deep water competition pool available to them. The older swimmers will do much of their work in the competition pool but move to the warm water for some of the turn work.

EMAIL us your best 100 IM or 200 IM time (to areteswimcamp@gmail.com) at least a week before your first clinic: This helps guide us in setting up groups of like ability. 

 

SPRING SUPER-SKILLS & STROKES CLINIC INFORMATION

Each clinic will be conducted from 10-12:30 on Sunday morning. The coach to swimmer ratio will be approximately 1:10 with Coach Chuck Warner leading the video instruction and pool sessions with the support of many of the ARETE Swim Camp staff. The clinic objective is to help refresh and retrain world class technique and starts and turns before getting into the heavy summer training. We will utilize the warm water pool for the youngest swimmers, except when we work on starts.

Information For Fall Super-Skills Clinics:

Each individual must choose only one skill per day. We expect to make a great deal of improvement in the single session, however, an individual might want to repeat a skill in a second or even third clinic in order to master it more extensively. Changes in skill choice can be made up to two days prior to the Super-Skills Clinic. The reason for the pre-selection is to maximize the organization of the Super-Skills Clinic in order to provide the best learning environment for each swimmer.

If you are a returning participant in our Super-Skills Clinics we have an existing color coded skill level for your start/turn skill set. At the conclusion of each Super-Skills Clinic swimmers are provided a 'success card' indicating the skills they've achieved and what remains to improve upon. We attempt to record all these skills in a computer data base

.At our Super-Skills Clinics we utilize video feedback underwater and above water to encourage learning in every possible. We work in groups of approximately one coach: six swimmers.The small clinic size and coach:swimmer ratio is reflected in the higher cost than our spring Super-Skills & Strokes Clinic.
