Breaststroke and Breaststroke Pullouts

This clinic is designed to be a fun, inspirational, and educational experience for swimmers to learn the details of fast breaststroke technique and improve their breaststroke pullouts! Olympic gold medalist Shannon Vreeland and World Champion Tim Phillips will teach your swimmer the KEY components to enhance overall race performance in breaststroke!

  • BREASTSTROKE: Breaststroke is the most challenging stroke technique to master. The technique in breaststroke requires an efficient pull, a powerful kick, proper timing, and an aggressive attack forward each stroke. Shannon and Tim will help each participant understand what perfect form feels like and they will also teach drills and exercises to practice these skills so that you can continue to improve for years to come!

  • BREASTSTROKE PULLOUTS: The breaststroke pullout is an important part of every breaststroke race. Not only is it one of the fastest that a swimmer will be moving, but it also has a lot of rules. Learn everything from the sequence of movements, to the proper body position, to tiny things that a swimmer can do that will make a big impact. See your swimmer surge ahead of the competition my improving on this key skill.

12 & Older Curriculum:
Faster Butterfly Racing

This clinic is designed to challenge swimmers to think differently about the way that they think about stroke technique and plan for their racing strategy in butterfly races. They will learn how to get more out of every stroke as well as how to plan for maximum improvement and performacne every time your swimer steps up on the blocks.

  • BUTTERFLY: Timing is everything in butterfly. When you kick, pull, and breathe must work together in perfect sequence in order to have a relaxed and fast butterfly. Tim and Shannon will go over not only a proper butterfly technique, but also how to hold on to your form throughout a race as fatigue sets in.

  • RACING STRATEGY: Do you know how your tempo, distance per stroke, and even your breakout distance effect your time? Tim and Shannon will go over the correlation between the statistics that you can gather after a race and how to use these numbers to your advantage. Your swimmer can find their best stroke count and rate to make the most of each race.

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