Faster Freestyle and Backstroke Racing
Three-time Olympian and four-time Olympic medalist Amanda Weir has been competing at the highest level for over 15 years! She has the knowledge of technique for faster swimming as well as the ability to teach it in a way that can help swimmers of all ages and abilities understand, apply, and improve! Amanda will be in the water with all of the participants to help them learn faster freestyle and backstroke technique.
Freestyle: Learn how to hold a straight and solid body line so that you can rocket through the water with less drag. Keep your head still and low in the water while driving your kick. Amanda will also teach participants how to get an early and powerful press backwards on the water with your pull. You swim freestyle more than any other stroke. Learn how to swim it effectively, efficiently, and fast!
Backstroke: Engaging your core not only allows you to swim stronger, but it also allows you to hold the proper body line. Amanda will help swimmers learn the importance of rotation and how to use it to your advantage for more power in each stroke. Your arm pull in backstroke should press the water to your feet using your whole paddle. Backstrokers are often the fastest kickers on their teams, find out why!
ASK QUESTIONS: Swimmers and parents are invited to ask Amanda questions during a Q&A session. Gain insight into her training regimen, diet and nutrition, and recovery tactics.
WATCH THE CLINICIAN: Observe Amanda swim at full speed and demonstrate a progression of perfectly executed drills to achieve powerful, efficient and fast swimming.
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.
