What & Why & Who & Way of Being for Clinics
What: The Swim Clinic is a 2 or 3 hour session, aimed usually at more experience swimmers (Improver Plus and upwards) who may wish to improve 1 specific stroke or skill, or 1 aspect of a stroke.
Why: The 2-3 hours focus on a narrow skill banding allows the teacher to work in a detailed and extended manner (usually in any single swimming lesson, the longest a skill or stroke would be worked-on is, say, 25 to 30 minutes unbroken). In being able to focus for 2-3 hours, the teacher can 'iron-out' any persistent faults that have not been completely successfully addressed so far in usual weekly lessons or on Fast Track courses.
Alternatively, an already-competent swimmer may attend a Clinic in order to further refine and improve their stroke or the skill that is being delivered.
Who: Clinics are aimed primarily at Improver Plus, Stroke Improver and Advanced swimmers who have already learnt the fundamental skills pertaining but who may need extra work on one aspect, one stroke or who may wish to improve/develop further.
The Clinic is not suitable for lower-level swimmers (Improver and below) who have yet to learn the core fundamentals of the stroke being covered. The aim of the clinic is not to teach whatever stroke from scratch, but to improve and correct faults in an otherwise existing stroke.
