You'll be working with French Creek Racing coaches Mack Henderson and John Kenny.  These 2 clinics are open to swimmers and multi-sport athletes of all levels.  Our primary focus will be to improve your overall efficiency and speed, both in the pool and in open water.  By participating, you will learn and practice drills focused on:
1. Long axis body balance and streamline
2. Early vertical forearm and catch
3. Hip driven rotation and propulsion
4. Kicking through the breath
5. “Relaxed” elbow recovery

You can immediately incorporate what you learn into your swim workouts and stroke routine.
