The April Vacation Morning Clinic will focus on stroke development and technique as well as some basic training skills. We will split the morning into 2 sessions with a dry land rest and lecture period during the break. Each day our staff will introduce the skills and drills necessary to become more proficient in each of the four competitive strokes and also work on starts and turns.
Every swimmer will have an opportunity to have all their strokes filmed, viewed and evaluated by our knowledgeable staff.
Prerequisite: This camp is open to any and all with at least one year of competitive swimming experience. This is not a “learn to swim” program.
