2015 - 2016 Stroke Clinics

Registration Now Open 

Thunder Academy's stroke clinics are a more intensive level of swim instruction than what is offered by local swim lessons and summer club swim teams. Our stroke clinic are open to swimmers who have a competent freestyle and can swim backstroke unassisted. This is an hour-long class for children 5 years and older.

Typically, stroke clinic swimmers are involved in summer league teams and desire to improve their strokes and maintain contact with the sport of swimming during the off season. Participation in summer swimming is not a prerequisite however. Swimmers who are done with lessons, that wish to become competitive read and/or would like to join a year round or summer club swim team in the future these are the clinics for you.

Thunder Academy Stroke Clinics instruction is offered by the Thunder Swimming (RMT) coaching staff, senior level RMT swimmers, and WSI swim teachers. Stroke technique, development and refinement is highlighted. Our Stroke Clinics are offered on Saturday Nights.
