To be the best, it helps to learn from the best. Give your freestyle technique a boost at this hip-focused session.
What will I learn in this class?
Proper fundamentals form the basis of any successful swimmer, so who better to learn from than athletes who have competed at the top?
In this course led by two Olympic-level swimmers, participants of all ages learn hip-driven techniques that enable fluid and fast movement through the water when swimming freestyle.
The Olympians leading the sessions will swim alongside students to demonstrate proper technique while modifying students’ form.
What are the benefits of this class?
Young swimmers solidify the basics of freestyle, including the role of the hips in effective stroke form, through clear instruction, demonstration and practice.
Both instructors will be available to answer questions and sign autographs at the end of the session.
