We are excited to announce three stroke clinics coming to Corvallis, Eugene, and Oregon City.  The stroke clinic being held in Corvallis will be geared towards fitness swimmers who want to improve their overall swimming technique.  The clinic in Eugene will focus on Freestyle; this clinic is also geared toward the fitness swimmer.  All OMS recognized coaches are encouraged to attend these two clinics.  Coaches will not be allowed in the pool, but they are encouraged to be on deck and assist with the clinic.  The Breaststroke clinic in Oregon City is for those who want to improve their breaststroke technique.  Allen Stark will be the clinician; he will talk about the history of breaststroke, the mechanics of the stroke, timing of the stroke, pull outs, turns, and in-water demonstrations.

Swimmingly,
Tim Waud/OMS Chair
