Race Skills Clinics are exclusively for squad swimmers and will focus on developing and perfecting race skills of each stroke – Freestyle, Backstroke, Butterfly and Breaststroke.
Race Clinics are a great way for squad swimmers to focus on the skills required to put together a strong race in their chosen stroke (swimmers don’t often get as much race practice or emphasis in a general squad session).
In each race clinic, students will learn, develop and advance their abilities in swim competitions and school carnivals by focusing on the following of their chosen stroke:
- Race starts – focusing on improved dives & starts, streamlines, underwater work and breakouts;
- Race finishes – working on glides, fast and appropriate finishes relevant to each stroke;
- Race turns – specific skills in performing an effective turn; focusing on timing, efficiency and speed, as well as breaking out into the appropriate stroke for the best possible race performance.

“Thoroughly enjoyed. Because it is focused on honing race skills, it was the first time I’ve seen Max actually push himself to get an outcome. He tried at everything attempted. He was so happy, that he is looking forward to next week and doesn’t mind that he has 2 lessons on same day. All in all, he wasn’t just swimming he was trying harder to do everything.”
