2.0 hours

Description

Small group, highly focused stroke correction clinics for kids and teenagers on butterfly, backstroke and breaststroke. Each swimmer has underwater filming and video analysis at the beginning of the clinic, followed by a pool session working through specific drills and exercises to help correct their stroke.

With a small group size of six swimmers per clinic, each swimmer is given tailored feedback and advice throughout the clinic. All clinics are run by Effortless Swimming coaches who have competed at or coached at a National or International level and have experience coaching all levels of swimmers.

Clinic covers:

  • The key fundamentals of each stroke giving the swimmer a better understanding of how the stroke works and where speeds comes from
  • Comprehensive video analysis above and below the water for all three strokes which is recorded and emailed to you after the clinic
  • Finding the natural rhythm and timing of the stroke for better efficiency and pacing
  • How to develop feel for the water and why most swimmers miss the ‘elusive’ catch
  • Building a rock solid kick for maximum propulsion
  • How to implement and maintain their new stroke changes into daily training
