The Stroke Clinic at Aquatic Adventures is a 55-minute class meeting twice per week (participants have the option of attending one or both classes each week).  This course is designed for students who already have a good foundation for the fundamentals of swimming and desire to learn more advanced swimming techniques, as well as improve their individual fitness. It is ideal for those who may have an interest in competing with a swim team.

Our Stroke Clinic classes put emphasis on proper technique, not speed. A strong technical foundation will ensure that students progress much faster when the time comes for them to work on speed. Students will receive intensive coaching with one-on-one critiquing.

Participants must be able to swim 25 yards freestyle without stopping and have an understanding of the four competitive strokes.  Classes will be broken into intermediate and advanced swimmers.  Though drills may be the same for each group, varying distances and time requirements will set them apart.
