About This Activity

Triathlon/Open Water Skills & Drills.

Do you want to have the BEST open water or triathlon swim of your life? Then this workshop is perfect for you! 

This SUPER FUN clinic will start with an enthusiastic inspirational talk to get the students excited and engaged. Karlyn will then follow up with an interactive group discussion outlining the techniques she will be teaching in the workshop.

Once we enter the water, Karlyn will begin with a mini Faster Freestyle workshop designed to help the student swim straighter and waste less energy.

Then the focus will shift to skills and strategies used in the open water including:  warming up, starting position and effective breathing techniques for all types of conditions. We will then work on sighting, drafting, evasive moves, bouy turning, pacing and much more!

The event will conclude with an open water swim to test out the new skills!


BIO: Karlyn was inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame in 2015 for setting 233 FINA Masters World records (33 still stand!). However, Karlyn is equally amazing as a stroke technique coach who loves helping swimmers of all ages and abilities learn how to swim faster with less effort.  For more about Karlyn and YouTube videos demonstrating her technique please visit www.Karlynpipes.com or http://aquaticedge.org/
