Past Clinic

This clinic is designed to be a fun experience for young swimmers to build on their love for swimming! Our elite clinician will teach participants the key components to a balanced and efficient butterfly. PLUS, learn to execute the fastest part of any race: UNDERWATER DOLPHIN KICKING!

UNDERWATER DOLPHIN KICKING: Did you know that most swimmers under the age of 12 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!
BUTTERFLY: Butterfly does NOT have to be the hardest stroke! Learn the body movements that will help you make it super easy and much faster!
  • BODY POSITION: Do you ever feel stuck when you swim butterfly? Or feel like you are struggling to move forward? Our elite clinician can help you fix that! Learn how to keep you body flat on the water without diving up and down. Soon you will be FLYING down pool!
  • TIMING/RHYTHM: The timing of the butterfly can be confusing but it doesn’t have to be! Our elite clinician will teach you when to kick and when to pull to help you build POWER! 
  • KICK: Master the timing of two, equally strong, kicks per stroke. Two kicks will help you maintain rhythm and forward momentum.
ASK QUESTIONS: Swimmers and parents are invited to ask the elite clinician questions during a Q&A session. Gain insight into their training regimen, diet and nutrition, and recovery tactics.
WATCH THE CLINICIAN: Observe the elite clinician swim at full speed and demonstrate a progression of perfectly executed drills to achieve powerful, efficient and fast butterfly.
GET UP AND RACE: Race one of the best swimmers in the world and watch their near-flawless technique - achieved by practicing the same drills they will teach you.
