FCR Fall Swim Adult Clinics

Sun September 10 - Sun November 26, 2023 Villanova University: Jake Nevin Field House Pool

Welcome to our 2023 edition Fall Swim Clinics.  Our first 2 clinics will be "beginner" focused, working on our long axis stroke.  Additional clinics will work on start and turn, short axis strokes, more advanced freestyle drills, and open water focus.



8 clinic dates from 10:45am-12:00pm:

1. Sunday 9/10 - Beginner/Intro Learn the basics - intro to freestyle and backstroke drills.
2. Sunday 9/24  - Beginner #2, designed to build on clinic #1. **At Lawrence Park Swim Club 10:15am-11:30am
3. Sunday 10/8 - Underwater Video Analysis #1
4. Sunday 10/22  - Intermediate #1  *These 3 clinics will build upon the skills learned in clinics #1 and #2, specifically focused on improving your freestyle stroke economy/efficiency.
5. Sunday 10/29 - Intermediate #2

6. Sunday 11/5  - Intermediate #3 **At Lawrence Park Swim Club 10:15am-11:30am
7. Sunday 11/19 - Underwater Video Analysis #2
8. Sunday 11/26 - Open Water Clinic in the pool.  We'll practice sighting, starts, drafting, buoy turns, and much more.  Working on these skills early in the season in the pool so they'll become more intuitive in the open water.


You'll be working mostly with French Creek Racing coaches Mack Henderson and John Kenny.  These clinics are open to swimmers and multi-sport athletes of all levels.  Our primary focus will be to improve your overall efficiency and speed, both in the pool and in open water.  


By participating, you will learn and practice drills focused on:
- Improved efficiency and connectivity with the water over time
- Conserving energy
- Getting used to getting out of your comfort zone
- Swimming faster with less energy expenditure in the pool and open water
- Having FUN in the process


Each clinic will take place at Villanova University's Jake Nevin Field House.  Plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early to be in the water by 10:45AM at the latest.

*For all participants, we recommend bringing any swim equipment you own.  If you don't own a pair of fins, we'd suggest picking up a pair prior to these sessions, particularly for beginning level swimmers.
