Swim Technique Workshops


I travel the WORLD teaching swimmers and triathletes how to swim faster with less effort. 

Let me share those SECRETS with you!

Why is it that top triathletes and Olympians make it look so easy and effortless...even when they are working hard?  

These athletes know a secret...and I do too. Do LESS to get MORE.

Learn more by signing up, or SETTING your very own FASTER FREESTYLE workshop at your location. Or, consider coming to Kona, Hawaii so I can work with you privately or in a small group setting. 

 I love working with:

·      YMCA's 

·      USA, Masters and IGLA swim teams

·      Triathlon and Multi-Sport teams/groups

·      US Navy Morale, Welfare and Recreation Departments (MWR)

·      Health and Fitness Clubs

·      Aquatic Directors seeking a “ready to go” program

Types of Swim Technique Workshops offered: 

Faster Freestyle with before/after video (4 hours). This workshop offers two-videotaping sessions with my expert analysis in a small group environment. After spending the first hour in a classroom setting, students will enter the water where I will film and analyze the "before" stroke. The next 2-hours begins with the basics: breathing, balance and body awareness, then gradually builds into the step-by-step freestyle stroke progression designed to help the students swim a faster and more efficient freestyle. This will be followed with a second video analysis of the "after" stroke.  Cost is $195 and space is limited to 10. 

Faster Freestyle (3 hours): The same as above but without the video. Perfect for a larger group or team. Cost is $125 and space is limited to 20. Group discounts are available.

Triathlon/Open Water Skills & Drills (3 hours). This super FUN workshop can be offered year-round at a climate controlled pool, or in the warmer months at a safe, sandy beach. We will start with a mini Faster Freestyle workshop, then shift to open water skills and drills including: sighting, drafting, evasive moves, warming up, start position and breathing techniques for all types of conditions and more. Cost is $95 for up to 25 people. Group discounts are available.

Multi-Stroke (back, breast and fly) workshop (3 hours). Swimming is a lifetime sport, so why not learn how to do the "other" strokes with EASE and CONFIDENCE? Even the oh-so-hard BUTTERFLY can be fun! Don't worry if you can't do these strokes, I will teach you! Cost is $125. Group discounts are available.

Youth SWIM FASTER NOW Workshops: This fun and energetic 2.5 hour YOUTH workshop will cover all four strokes, fast turns, motivation and how to focus on the details for better training and racing. Cost is $95.

Details: 

Classroom:  All workshops begin with one-hour dry, so we will need the use of a classroom, meeting room, empty storage room, or quiet deck space along with a TV/DVD player to watch my Go Swim DVD. 

Pool time: Depending on type of workshop, 2-4 lanes preferably in the warmest pool possible for about two-hours.

Sample timelines: 

Four-hour video workshop from 5:00-9:00 PM: 5:00-6:00 classroom, 6:00-8:30 pool time, 8:30-9:00 lobby 

Three-hour non-video from 6:00-9:00 PM: 6:00-7:00 classroom, 7:00-8:45 pool time, 8:45-9:00 lobby to wrap up

Registration: I will work with you to set up the registration process and create a ready-to-go registration form in PDF format for you to distribute along with an email blast to announce the event. Online registration may also be set on ACTIVE . 

Insurance: I can name your facility additionally insured (2 million/5 million policy),

FREE FOREIGN SWIM CLINICS for coaches and youths

I offer FREE workshops to coaches and swimmers from developing counties so I can share my knowledge, enthusiasm and teaching techniques with the world. This program is a WIN-WIN for all. The coaches attend a morning session that features multiple technical presentations (see sample topics here). In the afternoon, youth swimmers are invited to attend a Faster Freestyle or Multi-Stroke youth workshop with local coaches assisting me on deck to demonstrate the effectiveness of the teaching techniques just learned. Requirements: Nominal travel fee, accommodation and the opportunity to host additional paid clinics in the area.
