      The Fastest Part of Every Race - Carroll, IA

      Off the start and every turn is the fastest part of every swimming race! Learn to maximize that momentum! Participants at this clinic will work with Missy Franklin's Olympic Coach Todd Schmitz on establishing and trusting a tight and strong streamline, adding in a strong dolphin kick, and breaking out with more speed.  Coach Todd will lead two sessions designed for competitive swimmers of all ages and ability levels: Ages 11 & Under SessionSaturday September 22Check-in: 10:00 AMEvent: 10:30 AM - 1:00 PM Ages 12 & Over SessionSunday September 23Check-in: 9:00 AMEvent: 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM Scroll down for details on the curriculum. Space is limited! CURRICULUM: STREAMLINES, UNDERWATER DOLPHIN KICKING, AND BREAKOUTS Trusting a tight and strong streamline and dolphin kicking underwater is absolutely, undeniably, the fastest way to move through the water! Whether you dolphin kick on your stomach, side or back, understanding the importance of streamlined, underwater speed is vital for every swimmer! Olympic Coach Todd Schmitz will teach you how to make the most of your streamline, underwater kicking, and breakout, as well as teach you drills on how to improve upon those skills. Streamlines: Trusting your streamline and staying tight from fingertips to toes and head in line with your spine, is the simplest way to maintain speed. Todd will reinforce to you why swimmers should NEVER take streamlining for granted so that they can maximize their momentum off of every start and every turn!  Underwater Dolphin Kicking: Too many swimmers only kick from their knees down, but a good dolphin kick should begin with a chest press and whip through a swimmer's body. Your swimmer will learn to use their core for more speed and power with every dolphin kick.  Breakouts: Transitioning from being underwater to swimming takes skill and patience! Your swimmer will learn how to remain streamlined, keep their head down, and explode into their first stroke. A few small adjustments at this key point in every lap will make a big difference in your swimmer's times!  ASK QUESTIONS Swimmers and parents are invited to ask Coach Todd questions during a Q&A session. Gain insight into his training regimen, diet and nutrition, and recovery tactics that he teaches his swimmers. LEARN NEW DRILLS Learn a progression of intentional and beneficial drills to achieve powerful, efficient and fast swimming. PUT YOUR SKILLS TO THE TEST Participants will take their strokes to top speed and get their heartrate up with a set from Todd Schmitz. They will get to work on holding on their form while also getting their heartrate up to put their new skills to the test of fatigue. Take a photo with Coach Todd, get autographs, and receive a special gift from our sponsors! Inquisitive, Educated Swimmers are Faster Swimmers! Sign up TODAY!
