DUE TO N.C. EXECUTIVE ORDERS, ALL CLINICS ARE SUSPENDED FOR 2020
PRE-SWIM TEAM CLINIC
One of the goals of the Lochmere Swim Team is to make sure all of our swimmers, regardless of their age group, develop good stroke technique. Once that stroke technique is improved, times will improve and the swimmers will come to and leave practice with a positive attitude.
Participation in this clinic does not guarantee that a swimmer will be ready to participate on the swim team. Based on the judgment of the coaching staff, a swimmer will not be allowed to practice with the team until he/she meets the guidelines as published.
All new 6&Unders are required to participate in this clinic.
PRE-SEASON DIVE/TURNS/STROKE CLINIC
Lochmere's coaches are proud to host Pre-Season stroke clinics in May for swim team members of all ages. 10&Under swimmers will focus on starts/dives and stroke technique. For 11&Ups emphasis will be placed on flip turns and starts which many times can determine the success of a race.
The goals of the clinics is mastery, not conditioning. They are designed to prepare the swimmers for the start of the practice season. For many of them the excitement of the new season is combined with frustration of having not practiced in nin months and moving to a different age group.
Any returning 6&Under is welcome to participate in this clinic. While not required, it is extremely beneficial to new 7-10's to participate also.
SUMMER MINI-MONSTERS ACADEMY
We are happy in 2019 to be able to expand our clinics to include the littlest residents of the community. For our sixth year this is a developmental program designed to prepare 6&Under swimmers (Mini-Monsters) for the regular swim team. These clinics will be held in June and July when the water is most beneficial for little ones to be in the water. Watch this page for more details regarding dates and times.
