BUTTERFLY: Butterfly does NOT have to be the hardest stroke. As an Olympic medalist, Elizabeth Beisel knows the key components to swimming an efficient butterfly stroke. Elizabeth will teach her favorite drills and exercises to help each participant find an efficient butterfly pull, powerful kicks, and a well timed breath. Over the past decade that she has been on the National team, she has perfected her form to become the fastest in the world. Elizabeth is skilled at teaching what she knows and will make sure you leave this clinic with skills to achieve a faster butterfly!
Streamline: The streamline is SO MUCH MORE than just putting your hands together above your head! A tight and strong streamline activates specific muscles throughout your body so that you can improve the effectiveness of your start and turn. Elizabeth Beisel will teach you the tricks that she uses to keep her body tight and strong in her streamline position to slice through the water faster. The thought and effort that you put into this position will help you reduce drag and go faster!!
Underwater Dolphin Kicking: Absolutely, undeniably, the fastest way to move through the water! Let our Olympian clinician teach you how to make the most of your underwater kicking, as well as teach you drills on how to improve upon those skills. Strong and fluid undulations will allow you to blast throguh your underwaters to pass up the competition
Breakouts: Carrying the speed from your underwaters into the first stroke cycle is crucial for maintaining momentum. Learn the key components of a breakout that will make you more confident during a race!
ASK QUESTIONS: Swimmers and parents are invited to ask Elizabeth questions during a Q&A session. Gain insight into her training regimen, diet and nutrition, and recovery tactics.
WATCH THE CLINICIAN: Observe Elizabeth Beisel swim at full speed and demonstrate a progression of perfectly executed drills to achieve powerful, efficient and fast swimming.
PUT YOUR SKILLS TO THE TEST: Practice what you've learned by taking your stroke to your top speed with one of the best swimmers in the world! Hold on to your form while having the opportunity to challenge yourself
