Curriculum Topics at Fitter and Faster Swim Clinics

By Fitter and Faster Staff

Each Fitter and Faster clinic curriculum is customized to meet the needs of the host teams and local community.

We take into consideration the age, skill level and other factors to create the best curriculum for your swim clinic. We produce elite swim clinics and camps that have been attended by Junior National champions, age group record holders and swimmers who have gone on to swim at the NCAA Division 1 level and Olympic Trials. One past attendee even qualified for the Olympics. We also produce curriculums especially for swimmers new to competitive swimming – including the heralded “Green Flag Series” that we created in partnership with Indiana Swimming.

Below are popular topics we cover at clinics. The key for participants to improve and retain the information we provide to them is to cover a narrow set of topics at each clinic.
