Greenswell has partnered with Swim Coach Amy San Filippo, Swim Coach, Master Swimmer, and triathlete to create a swim clinic to improve your swimming speed and endurance by focusing on stroke technique and overall efficiency in the water. Triathletes will learn new drills to help isolate specific technique issues while also maximizing muscle memory with correct repetition. The Greenswell swim clinics are great for anyone – from the individual preparing for their 1st triathlon to the experienced triathlete looking to have a great swim in their next race. No experience required but must feel comfortable in the water swimming 25 meters.
A swim cap will be provided for all clinic participants. It is recommended to bring goggles, hydration, and a towel. Optional equipment: kickboard, pool bouy, paddles and training fins.
