Description

 Small group, highly focused skill correction clinic for kids and teenagers on dives and turns. Each swimmer will be filmed and have video analysis throughout the session (which is provided to parents afterwards), followed by a pool session working through specific exercises to help correct their dive starts and turns.

This dive and turn clinic will go through dive starts (track start), tumble turns (free and backstroke) and touch turns (breaststroke and butterfly). Please note backstroke starts and medley turns will not be covered.

With a small group size of six swimmers per clinic, each swimmer is given tailored feedback and advice throughout the clinic. This clinic is run by Australian representative, Commonwealth recorder holder and Effortless Swimming coach Mitchell Patterson.

Clinic covers:

•    The key fundamentals for an explosive dive start and how to maintain your speed off the blocks into your first six strokes

•    Comprehensive video analysis of your dive start and turns to give you better understanding of how to improve them (which is recorded and emailed to you after the clinic)

•    Finding the right number of kicks off the wall to keep speed and momentum into the breakout.

•    How to position your head, hips, feet, and arms during the start to get off the blocks quickly

•    Keeping a narrow and tight tuck position in your turns to minimise drag for maximum speed

•    How to implement and maintain their new skills into daily training

My 10 year old daughter found this clinic extremely beneficial. They provide that extra attention she needs to realise what area she needs to work on. Both instructions and feedback were easy for my 10 yr old to understand (Thanks to Mitch) and the videos taken of her was a great visual aid. She also regularly watches these videos as a reminder. I thoroughly recommend this clinic to all swimmers.

It was such a great day for my son who has struggled with his dives at swim meets. He took so much out of the day & the best part of it is that we are given the videos with an analysis for my son to watch before each meet. A big thank you to Mitch & the effortless swimming team for giving my son confidence when diving off the blocks & improving his turns. Recommend this class to all swimmers. Thanks again!

As per our past experience in a different clinic, Mitch gave amazing input. Started with the basics - explaining the theory behind what needed to be done in a way the children could understand. And then helping them implement it practically. Very valuable for young swimmers wanting to improve those skills. One input: not sure if this was first time, but it seems that time ran short, so for turns there wasn't enough time. So my son mentioned that recording & analysis couldn't be done - just go through the skills training (that in itself is useful, but recordings would help review after). Not sure if maybe for future they need to either - be split each into 2 hour sessions - as a 4 hour session may be a bit too long. - or maybe split groups into different ages, as the teenagers probably may catch on quicker than the younger ones.
