Swim Clinic Description
The clinic is designed to provide hands-on assistance in finding the perfect swim stroke. Beginning with finding balance and progressing through the mechanics of learning an economical and powerful stroke, participants will come away with tips to progress their swimming.  No open ocean water swimming!

An orientation will take place for all swim clinic participants on Sunday October 7 at 12:45 p.m. in the Alii Surf Conference room. After the orientation, those that have signed up for Sunday’s Swim Clinic I will walk over to the lagoon for Swim Clinic I.
