Alamo 180 Swim Clinic
Are you tired of spending hours in the pool and not seeing the benefits. Have you increased your amount of time in the pool each week only to see a second or two improvement? Is the water your “enemy” and you beat it into submission with each lap you take? Do your hips and legs drag through the water, but you can’t figure out how to make them horizontal? Do you have problems breathing? Do you often swim off course in the open water? Do you swim flat? If you answered YES to any of these questions, then this Swim Clinic is for you!
- Horizontal Body Positioning: Learn how to keep your hips up and level, butt up, chest down, head down, and heels up.
- Rotation: Learn how to appropriately rotate your body from side to side, all while keeping your hips and legs up.
- Underwater Pull: Learn how to roll the shoulder appropriately so your elbows stay high in the underwater catch and pull phase. Learn to get that last, strong push out of each stroke.
There will be several coaches on deck for this clinic.
This swim clinic will also include some of Bree’s finest, stick figure drawings! Images that will “stick” with you. They can’t be unseen! 😉
At the completion of the first clinic, you will receive “homework” that is to be completed between the two swim sessions. These will be on your own swim workouts and dryland exercises. These will help to reinforce what was covered during the first session.
At the completion of both sessions, you will receive a progress report. The progress report will outline what areas you need to work on and which drills are necessary for your success in swimming.
Swimming is a skill-based sport. It takes time to develop the skills necessary to be successful in the water. Our best advice to give you is to NEVER stop learning. Don’t just practice and guess at what you need to fix. Practice with a skilled coach telling you exactly what you need to do in order to be successful. This clinic is designed to help you think about swimming in a whole new way and to break down the stroke into manageable chunks so you can focus on each aspect and become the swimmer you have always wanted to be.

About Coach Bree:
Bree got started in endurance sports as a competitive swimmer in middle and high school. She also swam in college, trying to cleverly squeeze it in while simultaneously competing in cross-country and track. As an athlete, Bree honed her skills in the water by attending swim clinics and camps led by nationally ranked coaches. In her early coaching days, she became a swim instructor teaching youth how to swim. After a year of that, she started to teach adults. For 5 years, Bree has led weekly triathlon swim workouts as well as conducted private sessions to all levels of athletes – beginners with no experience to advanced swimmers looking to fine tune their stroke. It’s not uncommon for a beginner and/or intermediate swimmer to drop 5 to 10 seconds off their 100 yard time, after a session or two, just from a few tweaks to their strokes. It’s witnessed all the time at Alamo 180. Efficiency equates to speed. You can gain free speed in the water, just learn how to harness it! And a skilled coach can teach you how!
