Our under water video camera allows you to see yourself swim from an underwater perspective.
We offer three types of clinics:
Single Day Clinics The goal of our clinics is to help you swim faster. Our approach to instructing will teach you the proper swimming technique necessary for dramatic improvement. The clinics include classroom discussions, underwater videotaping, our "feel for the water" tools and in the water instruction from Clay and his experienced coaching staff. At the end of the day, you will have had the necessary instruction and drills to begin improving your swimming. You will also receive a list of swim drills, techniques and our "Swim Drills On Video" DVD that you can use to improve your technique during your workouts. Within two weeks after the clinic you will receive a copy of your swim on DVD with voiceover critique. Our monthly clinics are small in size and our coaching approach is very personal, thus ensuring high quality clinics. To register for an upcoming clinic or to ask any questions, send an email to Clay at the address below.
These specialized clinics provide a higher level of personalized instruction. The clinics are limited to six swimmers but still have three instructors yielding a 2 to 1 swimmer to coach ratio. In addition, you will be videotaped before the instruction begins and again after you have worked with your coaches so that you can see your improvement. You will receive both videotapes with voiceover on a DVD. Additionally, every swimmer will be assured to be evaluated by Clay in the pool and on video. If you are looking for the private instruction experience with videotaping, this is the clinic for you. The cost is $250.
