Stroke Instruction for Triathletes of ALL Levels

 Instruction is geared to swimmers who would like to learn how to swim a proper front crawl (Freestyle) stroke and Breaststroke. This class will offer the chance to work on freestyle and breaststroke drills for improved technique and efficiency. These sessions will focus on general stroke mechanics and proper breathing.  The Freestyle stroke and Breaststroke practiced during the clinics will help to not only build your endurance for the 400 meter portion of the Carmel Sprint Triathlon, but will allow you to swim a better more effective stroke in years to come.
