“My First Tri” Clinic
The “My First Tri” clinic is open to EVERYONE…while this clinic is designed for a beginner triathlete, it’s never to late or early to learn some tips and tricks for your next triathlon. We will spend the first 60-75 minutes of the clinic demonstrating, discussing, and practicing all aspects of a triathlon (transitions, rules, gear, safety, etc). The final 30-45 minutes of the clinic will be a mock triathlon to practice everything you learned at the clinic.
Level 1 Swim Clinic
This 90 minute swim clinic is for beginner and intermediate swimmers & triathletes. The clinic will lead you through the basic technique aspects of the freestyle technique: floating, body position, kicking, breathing, and the above-water arm stroke. Athletes will learn the correct way to do many basic swim drills (stick drill, finger-tip-drag, shark drill, sailboat drill, etc). We recommend that every athlete who joins our swim practice attends a swim clinic to understand the basic drills and know how to work on their technique at group practice.
Level 2 Swim Clinic
This swim clinic is for intermediate to advanced swimmers & triathletes looking to improve their technique to gain speed and efficiency in the water. The clinic will start with a video analysis (above and under water videos) of your current freestyle stroke. Participants will then get back in the water and work closely with the coaches to fine-tune the imbalances and inefficiencies found in the videos. The clinic will end with another video session to see the changes/improvements in the technique. Participants will receive a post-clinic email with their videos and a short written analysis.
Open Water Clinic
The open water clinic is a great way for beginner and intermediate swimmers and triathletes to get comfortable with some of the basic aspects of a triathlon swim. We will practice the skills, drills, and techniques for the start, sighting the buoys, navigating the chaos, relaxing around lots of other people, turning the buoys, finishing, and dealing with the unexpected.
Flip-Turn & Stroke Clinic
Flip-turns are not just for elite swimmers! Learn how to do a flip-turn in this 90 minute clinic and impress all your triathlete friends. Just kidding…flip-turns are great for improving your overall comfort and speed in the water. Doing a flip-turn will not only shave seconds of your average pace in the pool, but will help you get comfortable holding your breath upside down and underwater. We will also touch on the basics of all the other swimming strokes, including backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly.
