USMS Stroke Development Clinics

USMS stroke development clinics are for swimmers of all abilities. All four strokes are evaluated and corrected with the use of drills and coach instruction. Several of the top area coaches will be on hand, along with mentor coaches selected by the USMS National Office.

The goal of the clinic is to help swimmers improve stroke technique and teach drills that will enable the continued refinement of the strokes. Swimmers are not required to swim all strokes and may work on only those strokes they choose. 

Swimmers will need to bring fins, suit, goggles, and a towel. Fins, which help create buoyancy and propulsion, are important—without them many of the drills may be difficult. If you have hand paddles, please bring them, too.

USMS membership is required in order to participate. The stroke development clinic fee is $50 per swimmer. Contact club and coach services for questions or more information.
