Swim clinic curriculums

EACH FITTER AND FASTER CLINIC CURRICULUM IS CUSTOMIZED TO MEET THE NEEDS OF THE HOST TEAMS AND LOCAL COMMUNITY.

We take into consideration the age, skill level and other factors to create the best curriculum for your swim clinic. (Swim Blog: Good technique… Make Every stroke count!)

Fitter and Faster produces elite swim clinics and camps that have been attended by Junior National champions, age group record holders and swimmers who have gone on to swim at the NCAA Division 1 level and Olympic Trials. One past attendee even competed at the 2016 Olympics. We also produce curriculums especially for swimmers new to competitive swimming – including the heralded “Green Flag Series” that we created in partnership with Indiana Swimming.

→ The key for participants to improve and retain the information we provide to them is to cover a narrow set of topics at each clinic.
