Curriculum

A lot of time and cultivation goes into developing a world-class age group swim program. At this clinic, Coach Schmitz will focus on specific areas of interest that teams of all sizes can use to get to their next level. The session will be held in the beautiful auditorium at the Brownell Talbot School. We will be showing videos on a large screen along with a PowerPoint presentation.
