Spring 2014 Stroke Evaluation Clinic – April 7th – 10th
The Spring Stroke Clinic is offered to swimmers 7 years and up (swimmers aging up to 7 by the end of the year can participate). All new swimmers including winter-only 2013-2014 Piranhas who did not register for Long Course 2014 or Fall or Winter House must attend the Spring Stroke Clinic to be considered for membership on the Team. Any returning Fall or Winter 2013-14 House swimmer who wishes to remain in House for the Spring does not have to participate in the Spring Clinic. Registration for Stroke Clinic may be done online or in-person at the Y by following the YMCA’s Spring 2014 Registration Schedule. Returning full year Piranhas or seasonal Piranhas who participated in Fall or Winter House are not required to attend the Spring Stroke Clinic.
All new swimmers including House swimmers must attend the Spring Stroke Clinic to be evaluated for Team. Fall and Winter House swimmers do not have to be evaluated for Spring House. Each swimmer considering the stroke clinic should be able to swim at least three of the following strokes: freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke and butterfly, as well as be able to dive into the pool. During the clinic coaches will teach drills for all four competitive strokes, analyze technique and work towards correcting technical flaws. New swimmers will be evaluated and some will be invited to join the Piranhas or House Swimming. It is important for all swimmers to attend all four days of stroke clinic. If you have conflicts please inform the coaches. New swimmers who attend the stroke clinic are not guaranteed placement on the Team or House. We have limited space on both and some kids will be put on a wait list or referred to lessons in an effort to keep kids in the pool. Parents and swimmers will be notified via email about placement no later than one day after the completion of the clinic (see Y session brochure or clinic letter for detailed date and time). Emails will contain all the necessary information about registration, start dates, suit fitting, etc.
