Event description

Description

Swimming through the water with the least amount of resistance possible is something that Jessica Long has had to master! As a double amputee, Jessica can't rely on a kick to help her move through the water. She has to hold her core strong, have a perfect head position, and really grip the water with her arms. Learn how to think differently about technique and learn from one of the best teachers in FFT and best Paralympic swimmers of all time!

Jessica will lead two sessions designed for competitive swimmers of all ages and ability levels:

  • Ages 11 & Under
    Check-in: 8:30 AM - 9:00 AM
    Event: 9:00 AM - 11:30 AM

  • Ages 12 & Over
    Check-in: 1:30 PM - 2:00 PM
    Event: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Scroll down for details on the curriculum.


Curriculum: Slay the DRAGon

This clinic covers a key area of elite level performance: reducing drag and increasing your feel for the water! Paralympian Jessica Long has had to figure out ways to conserve energy while still racing fast against able-bodied Olympians even though she is a double below the knee amputee. Learn how to swim faster with LESS effort!

Slay the DRAGon: Reducing drag is imperative if you want to move through the water quickly and efficiently. Finding a streamlined body position will help you reduce the water resistance so that you go faster! At this clinic, 13-time Paralympic gold medalist Jessica Long will teach participants how to maximize their speed by becoming more hydrodynamic! Slay the DRAGon in your:

  • Starts

  • Streamlines

  • Turn Push-Offs

  • AND in your Strokes!

Feel for the Water: Moving your arms through the water perfectly won't get you anywhere if you don't have a feel for the water. You have to be able to connect to the water to grab it and throw it behind you. Jessica Long relies entirely on her arms to move her forward at amazing speeds. Learn how to think differently about the way you swim at this unique FFT Swim Clinic!
