Technique & Fitness Sessions

The five/six week training program will cover the FUNdamentals of each of the competitive strokes, including starts, turns, and finishes. Beyond building each stroke, athletes will begin developing endurance and the understanding of how to become a great teammate. Coaching Staff recommends attending as many sessions as possible over the five weeks to have the greatest opportunity of improvement.
