SUGGEST PARTICIPANTS: This clinic session is recommended for swimmers ages 11 and under.

If you are 12 & over you are welcome to register for the 12 & OVER CLINIC.

COACHES: There are up to four spots available in the hands-on coaches program. If you are interested in meeting with and working alongside Elizabeth Beisel during the clinic, please contact us.

FREESTYLE: We swim freestyle more than any other stroke in training. Instead of tuning out on technique, listen to Elizabeth to inspire you to make each stroke count.

  • Better body position: Instead of relying on your kick to keep your hips high, learn skills and drills elite swimmers rely on to keep a horizontal body position throughout a race.
  • Powerful pull: Utilize an early vertical forearm to put pressure backwards on the water immediately upon entry to help propel you forward.
  • Efficient breath: Maintaining a low and quick breath directly impacts your ability to hold a great bodyline, maintain tempo and sustain speed. Listen carefully as we share the secrets of how to sneak in your breath.

FLIP TURNS: In this clinic you will learn the intricacies of how to get in and out of the flags faster than ever. It may require more toughness and focus but it will pay off! Elizabeth will talk you through what she thinks about to be one of the fastest swimmers in the world at the turn!

  • Accelerate into the wall: The more speed you approach the wall with, the more energy you'll create to leave the wall with speed! Learn the importance of building your tempo into the wall!
  • Fast Flip: Getting your feet to the wall quickly is paramount for a fast turn! Practice a fast and tight rotation by learning to use your head, core and by driving your heels to the wall.
  • Proper Pushoff: During a freestyle push off, it is faster to leave the wall on your back rather than spinning onto your side during the rotation. Learn to maintain control through the turn while flipping fast to push off with speed and precision
  • Explosive breakout: Elite swimmers move at the fastest speed of their race at the breakout. Learn how to improve streamline, breath control and power for a more advantageous breakout!

UNDERWATER DOLPHIN KICKING: Most swimmers do not streamline properly or use a powerful dolphin kick. Did you know that this is the fastest part of your race? Get an edge over your competition by using this SECRET WEAPON! Often called the fifth stroke, Elizabeth witll teach you the importance of working on your underwaters. 

  • Proper Streamline: The simplest way to maintain your speed is a TIGHT STREAMLINE from fingertips to toes! Elizabeth will reinforce to you why they NEVER take streamlining for granted. Every fast swimmer must look like a rocket when they push off the wall!
  • Core Driven Kicks: The dolphin kick is a full body movement that takes a lot of core strength. Too many swimmers kick from their knees down. Elizabeth will teach you how to unlock the power of a full body undulation to create incredible power in your underwater dolphin kicks
  • Kick Count/Frequency: Take advantage of every single kick for better training and racing! Learn to use the up AND down portion of the dolphin kick for better distance per kick and power. Smart racers know their kick count off the start and the walls. Do you? 
ASK QUESTIONS: Swimmers and parents are invited to ask Elizabeth Beisel questions during a Q&A session. Hear her talk and gain insight into his training regimen, diet and nutrition, and recovery tactics.

WATCH THE CLINICIAN: Observe Elizabeth swim at full speed and demonstrate a progression of perfectly executed drills to achieve powerful, efficient and fast stroke. 

GET UP AND RACE: Race one of the best swimmers in the world and watch her near-flawless technique - achieved by practicing the same drills she will teach you.
