Stroke & Turn Clinics

Auburn Racquet & Fitness Club offers Stroke & Turn clinics for children interested in improving stroke technique, swimming in a year-round program, or preparing for the summer Swim Team.

Clinics are divided into two groups—beginner/intermediate and advanced and run September through April. Each month kids will be in the pool three times a week, improving strokes, endurance and confidence.

There's no better way to improve technique and enhance you child's self esteem at the same time. So come on in, the water's fine.

New Strokes Clinic for Younger Kids

In our New Clinics for five and six year old children, we introduce the foundational skills they need to become proficient swimmers. We build freestyle by starting with breathing and body positioning, then add kicking followed by pulling with breathing. We then put them all together. Backstroke is introduced next, in a similar progression. The clinics are held twice a week for 30 minutes in the small covered 88 degree teaching pool. Once Freestyle and Backstroke skills are locked into muscle memory, the clinics progress to Breaststroke and even Butterfly.

Clinics are held Mondays and Wednesdays 3:30–4:00 PM
