Testimonial from previous swim clinic attendees: 

“Thanks for the class. As always , Great!! coaching. The explanations as to why a position works (or doesn’t work) in the water is so helpful, it gels the concept and helps me remember. 
You also do a great job at the “teach and repeat”, teach and repeat. Only way for a new learner to really grab all those pearls of wisdom. I feel like I’ve learned A LOT and found many things I can work on after just one hour with you.”
