High Performance Freestyle Technique

Freestyle is the most technical stroke and it is also the stroke that you swim more than any other. Shane Ryan will be in the water teaching both basic foundations of technique all the way to challenging drills designed to help your swimmer approach technique differently at this high performance swim clinic. Skills will include:

  • Body-line: Your freestyle will never be fast without a strong body-line. Your swimmer will learn to maintain good posture and engage their core to have a foundation for a stronger and faster freestyle.
  • Kick: Become a stronger and faster kicker through learning about both the technique and timing of each kick from an Olympian.
  • Pull: The freestyle arm pull has 5 parts. The goal is to be as efficient as possible in pushing your body past your hand. Your swimmer will learn to get more out of every stroke
  • Rotation: Your swimmer will learn to utilize their rotation form more connection and power out of every stroke and every kick.
  • Breath: All swimmers know to keep one goggle in and one goggle out when they take a breath, but do they know when and how long to breathe? Shane will show you how to make each breath more efficient for faster freestyle racing no matter what distance.


Swimmers and parents are invited to ask Shane Ryan questions during a Q&A session. Gain insight into his training regimen, diet and nutrition, and recovery tactics. Use Shane's story as inspiration for your swimmer to feel empowered to continue to chase their goals.


Observe Shane swim at full speed and demonstrate a progression of perfectly executed drills to achieve powerful, efficient and fast swimming.


Practice what you've learned by taking your stroke to your top speed with one of the best swimmers in the world! Hold on to your form while having the opportunity to challenge yourself.
