Swim Skills Clinic

Thursday, June 18th: 6:30pm & 7:30pm Pool Clinic learn more

Saturday, June 20th: 7:30am & 8:30am Open Water Swim Clinic learn more 

Swim Skills Clinics! We have TWO – a pool session and an open water swim session! Attend one or both! We suggest attending BOTH clinics, as what you will learn in the pool clinic, will carry over into the open water clinic (but if you miss the pool clinic, don’t let that deter your from attending, and learning valuable information, at the open water clinic!)

About the Clinic Presenter: Linda Walker for an informative and interactive clinic designed to teach you how to swim more efficiently. About Linda:  20+ years coaching experience of all levels including summer league kids, high school athletes, as well as triathletes ranging from beginner to advanced, including All-State qualifiers and Swimming All-Americans.

About the Clinic: Learn drills that will improve your freestyle by correcting body position, as well as hip and torso rotation. Learn how to break down the recovery, catch, and finish of each stroke for a smoother, more efficient and powerful freestyle!

Open to ALL!  Semi-Private. Limited availability. This is not your typical, large class, one-size-fits all, generic instruction. Limited participation to ensure quality of instruction and opportunities for individual attention.

Spot is secured through online registration & payment.

Transition will be in the grass lot to the left of the boat ramp. We will have volunteers monitoring your things, so please set up your transition prior to the event start. There is plenty of space, so pick your favorite spot on the transition rack.

Bike Course Info: 
The bike course will be marked with signs.
We will have a sag vehicle.
Run Course Info: 
The run course will be marked with signs.
Water and electrolyte jugs will be on the course.
Timing:
We will record everyone’s overall time, and do our best with taking splits, but please bring a stop watch and record your own time and splits for backup. Timing will be done for both duathlon and triathlon.
Nutrition: 
We will provide water and electrolyte drink, and post-event snack, but come prepared with your own nutrition in case you don’t like what we have. ROCK the MOCK Triathlon is the perfect opportunity to test out your race day nutrition plan. Always try something new in practice, never in an actual race.
