About This Activity

SWIMMING CLINICS

The focus of the swim clinic is on the vital aspect of the freestyle stroke - the underwater high elbow position that is the source of propulsion for a swimmer.  The clinic begins with an out-of-water classroom and Q & A session, and is then followed by a dryland and in-water swim session. Attendees will learn what it means to "feel" the water as well as how to develop the strength and flexibility that is required for fast swimming.  

See up close the smallest swimmer to win Olympic Gold since the 1920 Olympics - this is living proof that technique is more important than size in swimming.  Sheila teaches with understanding, passion, and laughter.  Not only is the time spent informative, but it is fun and about more than just swimming.... it is about the thought processes that make champions.
