This two-day clinic is directed at swimmers who want to make a big improvement in a short amount of time. The SpeedWeekend format allows for a comprehensive presentation of optimal technique. Two strokes are presented in the morning classroom on each of the two days and then analyzed with Aquanex+Video in the afternoon session. This clinic will provide swimmers with a great deal of individual feedback, numerous opportunities to practice short swims without fatigue, and a complete analysis of each stroke. This clinic is limited to 12 participants to ensure plenty of individual attention for incomparable progress.

The SpeedWeek format provides a thorough treatment of swimming technique:
critical cues for head, torso, and leg orientation
key checkpoints in the arm cycle
optimal nonbreathing and breathing head positions
strategies for “focused” practice to continue progress after SpeedWeekend
Aquanex+Video analysis that pinpoints critical positions in each stroke
tips for training and racing
