The event focused on body balance and position, stroke rate, stroke length, rotation and timing to significantly increase swimmers’ mechanics, speed and overall efficiency.
Although the clinic was free for all participants, the swimmers were encouraged to “pay it forward” by helping others in the community.
Instructors for the clinic included Bill Ryan, former high school, collegiate and Venezuelan National Team coach; Seth Musser, Lee’s Summit High School swim coach; Doug Hayden, Missouri Valley Masters Swimming masters coach; Rich Baldwin; and Marie Tabler.
Based on the enthusiastic response, Kwasi Pryor, R-7 aquatics director, is planning future “pay it forward” free clinics for adults and children.
