Swim coach Miranda Tomenson will be holding a 2-hour swim clinic from 2-4pm on Feb 24th for an Advanced Skills Clinic on perfection your technique. This clinic is aimed at swimmers who are 1:50/100m or faster. Swimmers at this clinic are expected to have a strong grasp of basic body positioning in the water and proper stroke mechanics.
The goal of this clinic is meant to introduce new technical angles and ways of training to swimmers who have plateaued in recent months or even years. This clinic will feature a discussion by Coach Miranda Tomenson on the nature of swimming, its unique technical challenges and how athletes can expect to overcome those challenges.
Participants will then jump in the pool for a two part session:
1) A technique focused swim with a specific emphasis on how to identify and address weaknesses in the stroke
(2) A timed swim to determine your own CSS and a short swim set based on this concept)
What they will learn:
This clinic will serve as a chance to iron out any bad habits that may have formed over years of swimming with the poor stroke technique. Participants can expect to go over the finer points of body position, the catch and pull motion of the freestyle stroke and how to generate more power out of their freestyle kick. Additionally, participants will learn how to train more effectively using their CSS.
Why they should attend:
As training for the spring starts to gear up, this a great chance to add some new skills and techniques to your toolbox that will allow you to start the season strong and train with a purpose. It is also an excellent opportunity to get a detailed analysis of the specifics of your stroke and things that you as an individual can do to improve. Moreover, it is a chance to ensure that you are training properly and at the correct speed.
Needed: appropriate swim wear, goggles and preferably a swim cap and a water bottle, warm clothes for deck. Limit of 18 people.
