The most missed opportunity to drop time is the turns! Learn from one of the fastest swimmers in the world what it takes to accelerate into every wall, stay tight and quick, and blast off into a tight streamline. Tom Luchsinger will work with the 11 & younger swimmers to improve on flip turns, open turns, and underwater dolphin kicking.

  • FLIP TURNS: Your swimmer will learn to carry their momentum through the turn to get ahead of the competition on every wall. Use your core and arms to get into a tight ball and then plant your feet to explode away into a powerful pushoff in the perfect streamline. Tom is a National Champion due to his discipline and focus when executing a proper flip turn. Practice drills and exercises to help you master this athletic skill.

  • OPEN TURNS: Butterfly and breaststroke races can be challenging. You often see too many young swimmers using the wall as a rest and taking a big breath (or 2) instead of bouncing off the wall! Your swimmer needs to change the way they think about the open turn by tucking into a ball, driving their elbows, and dropping into a perfect streamline. Tom will teach all participants drills to help them get faster.

  • UNDERWATER DOLPHIN KICKING: The fastest swimmers in the world dolphin kick off of their walls and breakout ahead of the competition. It's not as hard as you think. Tom will help swimmers improve their technqiue as well as commit to a number of kicks off of every wall so that they can imporve their underwaters now as well as in the future.

Rock The Blocks

Every start is your opportunity to get a leg up on the competition right from the beginning. Don't let your swimmer go another meet having to play catch-up off of every start. Give your swimmer the opportunity to learn from one of the world's best how to have a faster start, underwater dolphin kick, and breakout.

  • STARTS: Get off the blocks faster and with more speed and power by learning the techniques of Tom Luchsinger! Your swimmer will learn to set up on the blocks in a position that will allow them to explode forward. Make sure to be fuly engaged in the air as you throw your hands forward into a tight streamline. Your swimmer will learn drills and exercises that will help make them faster at this clinic!

  • UNDERWATER DOLPHIN KICKING: Your swimmer will get more out of every dolphin kick by maintaining a tight streamline and using their whole body to undulate with precision and power. The kick should be both an up and down movement. The fastest swimmers in the world know how to utilize their underwaters to pass up their competition.

  • BREAKOUT: Participants will work on timing their breakout and staying streamlined through their first stroke. Head down, core engaged, and watch as you see your swimmer surge as they break the surface

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

WATCH THE CLINICIAN: Watch Tom Luchsinger swim at full speed and demonstrate a progression of perfectly executed drills to achieve powerful, efficient and fast swimming.

PUT YOUR SKILLS TO THE TEST: Practice what you've learned by taking your stroke to your top speed with one of the best swimmers in the world! Hold on to your form while having the opportunity to challenge yourself
