Adult Stroke Development

Adult Stroke Development is an eight session program designed for swimmers who know how to swim, and want to learn what competitive swimmers know. In each program we focus on a specific stroke: butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, and freestyle .We look at each stroke as a whole, then pick it apart, then put it back together again...better than ever . Using current stroke progressions, and drills developed with some of the best competitive swimmers in the world, we work toward the most efficient, effective and fast strokes for you and your body. The small group environment allows participants to watch and listen and gain additional insight and inspiration as others work to perfect their butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, and freestyle.

Each meeting includes a short dryland talk and muscle activation exercises, stroke assessment and drills . Our final meeting includes underwater filming for individual stroke analysis . Following the last class we will send a follow up email with suggested workouts(s) that match participants' goals. Topics covered for each stroke include: breathing and core balancing, powerful pull, driving kick,axis-driven stroke and recovery, entry and catch. We will use training tools to improve form and build endurance and power for the stroke.

Swimmers are encouraged to use "off" months to practice what they have learned and to incorporate their new skills into their strokes for life.
