Past Clinic

Event Detail

Grab onto the water and move through it more efficiently and powerfully! At this high performance swim clinic, Paralympian Tucker Dupree will teach your swimmer how to achieve and enhance their feel for the water and reduce their drag in order to drop time!

Suggested Participants

Tucker will be leading two sessions designed for swimmers of all ages and abilities.


Feel for the Water

Moving your arms through the water perfectly won't get you anywhere if you don't have a feel for the water. You have to be able to connect to the water to grab it and throw it behind you. Tucker Dupree relies entirely on his feel for the water to allow him to become a world record holder. Learn what it feels like to have a deeper understanding of the way you can achieve maximum power in your strokes!

    Slay the DRAGon:

    Reducing drag is imperative if you want to move through the water quickly and efficiently. Finding a streamlined body position will help you reduce the water resistance so that you go faster! At this clinic, Paralympic world record holder Tucker Dupree will teach participants how to maximize their speed by becoming more hydrodynamic! Slay the DRAGon in your:

    • Starts:
    • Streamlines:
    • Turn Push-Offs:
    • AND MORE!:


    Swimmers and parents are invited to ask Tucker questions during a Q&A session. Gain insight into his training regimen, diet and nutrition, and recovery tactics. Get to know him and relate to his journey as inspiration for yourself.


    Observe Tucker swim at full speed and demonstrate a progression of perfectly executed drills to achieve powerful, efficient and fast swimming. Visual learners will greatly benefit from not only seeing drills and exercises done correctly, but also from seeing them live and in person!


    Learn the same drills that Tucker practices every day as well as what he thinks about when he swims. Then get the chance to practice and get feedback!
