Olympic Gold Medalist Tyler Clary will teach participants the elements to a fast, powerful butterfly and backstroke. 

BUTTERFLY: You have the rhythm and timing that propel you down the pool in this fluid and powerful stroke, now learn to take advantage of your core and hip drive, coordinated with a high catch, to catapult you past your competitors.

  • BODY POSITION: Maintain a horizontal body line, while generating forward progress, without diving up and down the pool creating unwanted drag.
  • TIMING/RHYTHM: Learn the secrets of how to swim fly like a skipping stone - carrying momentum from one stroke to the next.
  • TEMPO: Enhance your racing skills by understanding your stroke rate, or stroke count, and how it is just as valuable as knowing your pace.

BACKSTROKE: You understand the core components of backstroke, now begin to master the subtle skills that will help you compete at the next level. Use your core to create rotation as well as a stable and balanced stroke, build a powerful pull with a strategic use of stroke rate, and use your kick as a dominant propulsive force.

  • PULL: Accelerating your hand into the entry and getting into a clean catch position will help you set up a pull that will propel you forward.
  • TIMING: Hand speed in your recovery sets the tempo of your stroke! Your hands should never stop in backstroke; learn how and why to keep yours moving.
  • BREATHING: Yes, there is a breathing pattern in backstroke. Hear about how the pro's control their breathing and use a steady pattern throughout their race.
  • TEMPO: Hand speed on the entry and the exit...the pros NEVER let their hands stop in backstroke, should you?
ASK QUESTIONS: Swimmers and parents are invited to ask Tyler Clary questions during a Q&A session. Gain insight into his training regimen, diet and nutrition, as well as recovery methods.

WATCH THE CLINICIAN: Observe Tyler as he swims at full speed and demonstrates a progression of perfectly executed drills to achieve powerful, efficient and fast swimming.

GET UP AND RACE: Race Tyler, one of the world’s best swimmers, and watch his near-flawless technique — achieved by practicing the same drills he will teach you.
