    Week 7

    Swimmers, there are just few more weeks of this calendar year and hopefully you have not just jumped back into the pool for the upcoming season, but, you have also thought about how you’d like to approach your swim training.

    This morning, we held our first technique clinic of the 2018 season with 20 participants at the Catholic University Pool. Led by Coach Katie, our experienced coaching team walked through demonstrations and guided exercises to focus on the basics of body position and pulling mechanics. This clinic matches up to our current offseason/preseason phase focus. If you attended our clinic, you’ll notice many similar technique cues in our practices.

    If you missed our clinic, but wanted to attend, we have another clinic on 1/14/18 that is an identical repeat of the first clinic held today. For more information, please see our Upcoming Events section below!

    Lastly, for your awareness, each year the DC Department of Parks and Rec shuts down each pool for a period of time for maintenance. This year, the Wilson Aquatic Center will be shut down beginning Sunday, January 7 through Sunday, January 14, 2018. The facility is expected to re-open on Monday, January 15, 2018. Unfortunately, there will be no accommodations from the DC DPR to provide us lanes at other pools and as such, we will suspend evening practices at Wilson during that week. We will, however, still have practices at UDC in the mornings and all evening swimmers are invited to attend AM practice. We will work with our Non-Morning Only Monthly Unlimited Swimmers to provide compensation as all other passes should not be affected.

    If there are any questions regarding the clinics or the Wilson shutdown in January, please email us!

    Thank you and see you on deck!

    Upcoming Events:

    MSP Swim Clinic #2: January 14th, 9-11AM This two hour technique intensive clinic at the Catholic University Pool is designed to focus on body position, stroke mechanics and to build confidence in the pool for beginner to intermediate triathletes. This small group environment will make good use of a low swimmer to coach ratio and will send swimmers home with individual drills and concepts to reinforce corrections to issues discussed in class. Swimmers should be able to swim 200 yards non-stop, bring hydration, and be open to stroke correction. This clinic is identical to Swim Clinic #1 on 12/10/17.
