Stroke & Turn Clinic
The LSA Swim & Dive Team is proud to offer a Stroke and Turn clinic during our summer swim season. The goal of our clinic is to strengthen, enhance and further develop the skills of the competitive level swimmer.
Coaches Lynn Shields and Dana Meth, both seasoned swim coaches for competitive teams in the area, have structured the program into two levels, Advanced and Intermediate. Both levels have been designed to meet the specific needs and abilities of our swimmers. Placement in either level is based on the swimmer’s ability level, as well as his/her age, and will be determined by Coach Shields and Coach Dana. Please know that our coaches will make every effort to place each swimmer in the most appropriate level to meet his/her individual competitive swimming needs and goals.
Our Stroke and Turn clinic is a one hour session which takes place directly after swim team practice. The clinic focuses on developing and refining stroke technique, starts, turns, and finishes for all four competitive strokes. In addition, we will educate swimmers on strength and dry land training, nutrition, and racing strategies.
If your child is new to the program, the coaches will contact you to make arrangements to evaluate your child’s swimming abilities. Evaluations will take place at the Lawrence High School pool. In addition, the coaches may also ask to evaluate swimmers who have previously participated in the program.
Session A: May 26th to July 25th $299 fee
Session B: June 24th to July 25th $199 fee
