Swimming for Triathletes 101

Is the swim holding you back?  WE CAN HELP.

Tri-Valley Triathlon Club has teamed up with Boost Swimming, led by National US Swim Team coach Jeff Pearson, to offer a comprehensive, usable swim clinic for triathletes.

This 3 hour intensive swim clinic will help you improve your swim, and your overall race. Learn the secrets every swimmer that crosses over to triathlon already knows. Participants will be introduced to the Principles of Boost Freestyle methodology and learn the same principles employed by the world's best swimmers. Our goal is that you not just make it through the swim, but excel and be physically and mentally ready to get on the bike and run when you exit the water.

This 3 hour skills clinic will cover all the basics of swimming techniques and training including:

  • body position & posture of swimming
  • importance of head and hand position
  • parts of a stroke, drills for each part, and how to fit into a workout
  • body and lung mechanics of breathing during freestyle
