PCC MIDDLE SCHOOL STROKE CLINICS

Each one hour clinic will feature instruction on specific skills from our professional coaching staff, supported with assistance and demonstrations from our experienced athletes. These clinics are aimed at 5th-9th graders who can swim, but would like to improve their stroke technique, racing turns, racing skills, and racing starts. 

This is a great way to get a jump start  on the PCCS middle school swim season, which starts in early March. Clinic costs vary and participants must pay cash at the door. Parents are welcome, but not required, to stay and watch. Participants must be able to swim 25y without stopping or putting their feet on the bottom. These clinics are not a learn-to-swim lesson.
