Open Water Swim Clinics for Spring & Summer 2010

One of the most popular clinics I give and sells out nearly every time is the open-water swim clinic. I will be conducting the clinic only three times this year in San Diego, so the opportunities are limited. The dates for the clinics will be:

Saturday, April 17th, 2010
Saturday, May 8th, 2010
Saturday, June 12th, 2010

Each clinic will start at noon, and last up to two hours, at Ventura Cove in Mission Beach.

Each clinic is limited to 16 participants, with no waiting list. You can register by clicking here.

These clinics are very popular, so hurry and register before they sell out! You will learn a lot of valuable information, and see OVERNIGHT improvements in your swim.
