Curriculum:
Faster Butterfly and Breaststroke Racing

This clinic is designed to be a fun, inspirational, and educational experience for swimmers to learn the details of fast techique while they build on their love for swimming! World Champion Sarah Gibson will teach your swimmer the KEY components to enhance your overall race performance in both butterfly and breaststroke!

  • BUTTERFLY: Butterfly does NOT have to be the hardest stroke. As an elite butterflyer, Sarah Gibson knows the key components to swimming an efficient butterfly stroke. Sarah will teach her favorite drills and exercises to help each participant find an efficient butterfly pull, powerful kicks, and a well timed breath. She has perfected her form to become one of the fastest in the world and she will ensure that your swimmer will leave with more knowledge and confidence in your butterfly stroke!

  • BREASTSTROKE: Breaststroke is the most challenging stroke to master technically. The strategies for proper form in breaststroke require an efficient pull, a powerful kick, proper timing, and an aggressive attack forward each stroke. Sarah will help each participant understand what perfect form feels like and she will also teach drills and exercises to practice these skills so that your swimmer can continue to improve now and in the future.

  • Racing Strategies: How does your tempo, distance per stroke, and breakout distance effect overall time? For your swimmer, understanding how to be strategic about to pace a race can help all swimmers drop time! Your swimmer will practice what it feels like to have longer more efficient strokes as well as a faster tempo so that you can approach each race with a plan and feel more confident throughout
