Date: April 23rd - June 25th
Time: 8:30pm - 9:30pm Tuesdays
This program is for anyone who wants to be a better swimmer, not just for triathletes. Swimming is a sport where proper form is far more important than sheer strength. An efficient swimmer will go faster, further, and longer with less effort. The goal of this course is to go through all elements of the swim stroke to help you become as efficient as possible. In addition head coach John Stewart will provide one or two workouts and drills for you to do on your own so you maintain a good feel for the water in between classes.
Each week we will focus on a different part of the stroke with drills and exercises, then combine those skills with lap swims focused on technique. For triathletes, we will also practice mass starts, sighting, and other triathlon specific skills. In addition, John will provide one or two workouts and drills for you to do on your own so you maintain a good feel for the water inbetween classes. At the end of this class you'll feel much more comfortable in the water, much more in control of your swimming, and much, much faster. This class is NOT for beginners and we suggest folks looking to participate in this program MUST come to class already able to swim 2 lengths of the pool in some semblance of the freestyle/crawl stroke (regardless of speed, or lack thereof) and be able to tread water.
The class is held at the Berkeley Carroll Athletic Facility in Park Slope located at 762 President Street.
