Swimming Transformation Pool to Open Water Clinics

Swimming is a highly technical sport and stroke efficiency is the path to success. Open water swimming technique includes nuances and strategy different from pool swimming. Our experienced coaches have competed over hundreds of race miles for valuable first hand knowledge for swimming faster and more efficiently in open water. Their experiences will transform your swimming. The low swimmer to coach ratio gives you more personal attention. What you learn from us may make the difference in a successful race or a DNF. 

For Beginning and Intermediate Swimmers. This 2.5 hour intensive swim clinic will focus attention on proper swim form and is designed to improve your technique so you use less effort and swim faster. We will build your stroke through a series of 15 drills to give you the necessary instruction and skills to begin improving your swimming. Our lessons help  you move cleaner and swifter through the water, and how to hold the water for a more powerful faster stroke. This enables you to swim faster, hold your course better in currents, and negotiate rough conditions with confidence. We will teach you during a low swimmer to coach ratio class to ensure you get ample individual attention.



"I think I placed 7 or 8 out of 15 in my age group on the swim! WOOHOO!!!  Thank you so much for your awesome guidance/coaching!  I'm not sure that I would have made it through that swim had we not had that one session out at Reston.  I'm looking forward to next season - and being stronger and faster!
