Stroke Clinic *Not offered at LA Fitness/City Sports Club Locations
Give your child a head start in competitive swimming and advanced techniques today by enrolling in Stroke Clinic!
Stroke Clinics at Waterworks Aquatics are designed for students who already have a strong foundation of the fundamentals for swimming and desire to learn more advanced swimming techniques, which are offered at our swimming school.
Our Stroke Clinic classes put emphasis on proper technique over speed. A strong technical foundation will ensure that students progress much faster when the time comes for them to work on speed.
We offer two different levels of stroke clinic classes.
Our office can further review the levels with you:
Our stroke clinic intermediate classes are 40-minutes in length and have a 12:1 student:intructor ratio. The intermediate class is for children who are 5 years of age or older and level 8 or higher.
Our stroke clinic advanced classes are 40-minutes in length and have a 12:1 student:intructor ratio. The advanced class is for children who are 9 years of age or older and level 8 or higher.
Stroke Clinic Intermediate and Advanced Classes Offer:
- Physical conditioning – to build strength and stamina
- Stroke refinement – to prevent bad habits
- Advanced skills – skills that are beyond basic swimming such as starts and turns
- Intensive coaching – students are given 1-on-1 critiquing and guidance
Many children who have the potential to become great swimmers are placed on swim teams. However, without adequate guidance and instruction, children do not learn the proper techniques. As a result, improper techniques develop into bad habits which can hinder progress.
Students will enhance their strokes with drills taught by our stroke technique instructors. The stroke clinic is exciting and fast paced, and students will receive a great workout.
