Join us for a great weekend of stroke development. We take our experience as Certified Total Immersion Coaches and refine the process to help swimmers develop the complete swim stroke. From beginner to advanced swimmer we promise you will see improvements in all facets of your swimming.
Location: Cleveland State University
DESCRIPTION: Learn the core of Streamline stroke mechanics that have transformed thousands. Streamline Endurance sets the table for efficient swimming by developing proper alignment and balance in the water. This builds a reliable foundation upon which we add core rotation, proper limb orientation/movements, and breathing skills. Our carefully planned learning sequences ensure you’ll make near-instant progress. In only one day we guarantee you’ll walk out a better, smarter swimmer. As with all of our courses, the coaches are in the water with you providing hands on help and video feedback.
DESCRIPTION: Streamline Smart Speed refines the mechanics learned on Saturday with clear practice strategies to consolidate the various stroke components into effective whole stroke swimming. Learn to structure your pool sessions and build efficiency-reinforcing focal points into every lap, making every practice an investment in skill acquisition, endurance and speed. We’ll dive into the metrics of tempo and stroke length to teach you how to generate and sustain velocity.

WHAT TO BRING:
FOR THE CLASSROOM: Device for note taking. All video files shot during the class will be uploaded to DropBox and available to view/download. Pack a lunch for Saturday and Sunday.
FOR THE POOL: For indoor pools. We recommend that male students wear a Speedo-type brief or close-fitting triathlon swim shorts, rather than loose-fitting swim trunks, which can make balance even more of a challenge. ‘Kicking challenged’ swimmers may find fins helpful in achieving easy movement during the first water session. Please have at least one swimsuit, towel, goggles and swim cap (helpful, not mandatory.) If you own a Finis Tempo Trainer, please bring it.
