Streamline

The Streamline six-week clinic is designed to prepare children 5 and up for Summer League, with a focus on improving swimming technique. The first four weeks concentrate on one stroke per week, while the last two weeks focus on streamlining strokes, starts and turns.

Streamline practices take place three times a week, and participants are grouped according to age range. Streamline clinics typically run between March and May.
