Remember that time you tried to escape that jellyfish, but you couldn’t swim away? Avoid that sting again with a free swim clinic offered by USA Swimming, Swim 1922, and Emory University.
The clinic will be held on Friday, July 11th from 5:30PM to 7:30PM at the Woodruff PE Center Pool, on Emory’s main campus. The clinic is open to everyone, including children, regardless of their swimming ability. I have no ability, so they’ll have a ball trying to teach me. Their goal is to not only improve the techniques and speeds of each swimmer, but for families to gain knowledge about pool safety in a supportive environment.
Who’s going to be teaching? You’ll have instruction from elite swim coaches Elijah Ajayi and Olympic medalist Natasha Hopkins, who just so happens to be part of the USA Swimming’s Catch a Rising Star Program. For this clinic, there will be four separate sessions of up to six athletes each. You’ll be taught proper swim stroke cadence, correct swimming techniques and training tips to help improve you overall.
So, go to this clinic. Avoid jellyfish.
