Improve your skills in competitive swimming by attending a swim clinic at your branch.
The YMCA Swim Clinics provide opportunities for swimmers to become students of the sport, learning and growing in a non-competitive, fun environment. The drills and techniques are used by collegiate and pro swimmers, but are just as important for age group and masters swimmers.
If you are like most swimmers, you can always improve your swimming through technique. One of the best means of doing so is attending a swim clinic. A swim clinic offers you a dedicated, focused block of time outside your normal workout schedule where you can focus solely on technique and technique improvement, and ask questions while getting immediate feedback from a coach or expert.
Swim clinics may vary widely in focus and experience level, to include:
- Open water swimming
- Beginning freestyle mechanics
- Advanced stroke technique
- Racing starts and turns
