CURRICULUM:

BUTTERFLY: Butterfly does NOT have to be the hardest stroke. As an Olympic gold medalist, Tyler Clary knows the key components to swimming an efficient butterfly stroke. He has perfected his form to become the fastest in the world. Learn from this word-class athlete and acheive a faster butterfly!

  • High and horizontal body position: Drive your energy forward! Too many swimmers lift up too high and dive down too low. Maintain a horizontal body line, while generating forward progress, without diving up and down the pool creating unwanted drag.

  • Strong and precise kick: Kick timing is the key to a relaxed butterfly stroke. Master the timing of two, equally strong, kicks per cycle. Two kicks will help you maintain rhythm and forward momentum. Learn the precision required with each butterfly kick.

  • Powerful pull: A high and early catch will allow you to put pressure on the water backwards which will propel you forward. Accelerate your hands through your pull to create power and a relaxed recovery. Don't pull too wide! Make sure your pull happens under your body.

  • Consistant Rhythm: Learn the secrets of how to swim fly like a skipping stone - carrying momentum from one stroke to the next. Flowing in your butterfly stroke

  • Low Breath: Keeping your chin touching the water when you take a breath will allow you to maintain a proper body position. Also learn when the breath should happen in your stroke to maximize speed during your breathing stroke.

ASK QUESTIONS: Swimmers and parents are invited to ask Tyler questions during a Q&A session. Gain insight into his training regimen, diet and nutrition, and recovery tactics.

WATCH THE CLINICIANS: Observe Tyler swim at full speed and demonstrate a progression of perfectly executed drills to achieve powerful, efficient and fast swimming.

GET UP AND RACE: Race one of the best swimmers in the world and watch his near-flawless technique - achieved by practicing the same drills they will teach you.
