SPACE IS LIMITED

SUGGESTED PARTICIPANTS: This clinic session is recommended for swimmers ages 11 and 12.
COACHES: There are up to four spots available in the hands-on coaches program. If you are interested in meeting with and working alongside Chloe and Gary during the clinic, please contact us.

STARTS: Set the tone for a great race with a powerful, streamlined and fast start. There are countless intricacies to performing a great start and you only get better with practice. Gary Hall Jr. and Chloe Sutton will teach you drills and exercises to maximize your power off the block!

  • Hand Placement: Know exactly where to place your hands so that you can be active in your ready position and explode off the block. Your first movement should be to pull with your arms. Chloe and Gary will teach you how!
  • Foot Placement: Everyone's foot placement might be a bit different but the elite clinicians will teach you how to figure out what is best for you to gain both stability on the block and explosive power when leaving the block. 
  • Tight Body Line: Chloe Sutton and Gary Hall Jr. will share their expert tips on how you enter the water tight and strong. Experiment with how steep is too steep, how to get into one small entry hole, and how to stay strong from fingertips to toes. Work on eliminating water resistance for the tightest possible entry and learn to squeeze the ears tightly and elongate the body for the most optimal position.

UNDERWATER DOLPHIN KICKING: The fastest that you will ever be moving in a race is immediately after the dive and as you push off the wall in your turn. Maximize your speed and power at this point and use underwater dolphin kicking to accelerate into your breakout! 

  • Body Position: The simplest way to maintain your speed is a TIGHT STREAMLINE from fingertips to toes! Chloe and Gary will reinforce to you why they NEVER take streamlining for granted. Every fast swimmer must look like a rocket when they push off the wall!
  • Core Driven: The dolphin kick is a full body movement that takes a lot of core strength. Too many swimmers kick from their knees down. Chloe and Gary will teach you how to unlock the power of a full body undulation to create incredible power in your underwater dolphin kicks.
  • Make each kick count: Take advantage of every single kick for better training and racing! Learn to use the up AND down portion of the dolphin kick for better distance per kick and power. Smart racers know their kick count off the start and the walls. Time your breakout to explode into your first stroke!

MENTAL APPROACH: The most important aspect to becoming a champion is what happens between your ears. Chloe Sutton and Gary Hall Jr. know the secrets to unlocking your potential in order to swim with confidence. 

  • Goal Setting: Chloe and Gary were once age group swimmers who had to inch their way closer and closer to achieving their dreams. Learn how to plan out your season and set achievable goals that will lead you on the path to success. 
  • Manage Your Nerves: Being nervous is a GOOD THING! However, wasting your energy on anxiety and fear is not efficient. Learn to use your nervous energy to swim faster! 
  • Be Present at Practice: Going to practice is only the first step to improvement. Too many swimmers will simply swim through ractice without thinking about what they're doing. Being intentional and delibrate in practice allows you to improve your technique, get more out of each practice, and get closer to achieving your goals. 
ASK QUESTIONS: Swimmers and parents are invited to ask Chloe Sutton and Gary Hall Jr. questions during a Q&A session. Gain insight into their training regimen, diet and nutrition, and recovery tactics.

WATCH THE CLINICIANS: Observe Chloe and Gary swim at full speed and demonstrate a progression of perfectly executed drills to achieve powerful, efficient and fast swimming.

GET UP AND RACE: Race two of the best swimmers in the world and watch their near-flawless technique - achieved by practicing the same drills they will teach you.
