Participants age 11-12 will learn how to execute one of the most challenging skills in swimming: the backstroke start. Tyler will teach swimmers how to start out their backstroke race ahead of the competition while also teaching them the components that make up a fast backstroke race!

Backstroke Starts: Start out every race ahead of the competition with powerful, streamlined, and fast backstroke start.

Olympic gold medalist Tyler Clary will teach you some of his favorite strategies on how to execute this explosive and athletic movement.

Backstroke: Identify with Tyler Clary the key factors to build a balanced and propulsive backstroke. It will require a strong core, a small and steady kick, and a pull pattern where pressure is put immediately backwards on the water.


JUNE 30 - AGES 13 & OVER
HIGH PERFORMANCE FREESTYLE AND FLIP TURNS

This session is for swimmers age 13 & over, including adult swimmers, to focus on the detials of swimming fast and efficiently in their freestyle stroke. They will also work on carying that momentum through the turn to breakout ahead of the competition!

Freestyle: Freestylers have the widest range of distances to choose to race from. Tyler Clary will help you identify the key components to increasing power and efficiency in your freestyle stroke. There are slight technique and strategy differences when swimming sprint and middle distance. Learn those differences and improve.
