6 WEEK SWIM CLINIC
Team Atomica offers the most effective swim clinics Toronto has to offer. Our 6 week, in-depth swim analysis and correction clinic is coached by Darian Silk.
Each week Darian teaches new technical skills, videotape your swimming and provide feedback. This unique long-form clinical format allows you to learn and practice, but most importantly get real-time visual and verbal corrections. This session is for swimmers and triathletes of all levels who want to focus on improving their swim technique, efficiency and ultimately, speed.
“I can’t tell you how helpful this clinic has been for my stroke. I still have work to do on technique but the difference in my stroke feels like night and day. Ayesha was amazed at the changes when I went to one of her workouts last week. The stroke count drill last night was a great litmus test – for years I have been pretty much exactly 16 strokes per length. When we counted last night, even when I was going against the current I was down to 15. I expect that you have dropped my average stroke count per length by probably about 3, which makes a major difference in shoulder fatigue over longer distances. If I can just get my stroke synced up with body rotation I am hopeful that the pain I feel in my shoulder after lots of distance training will disappear altogether (and it is already greatly diminished). Thank you so much for everything!” –Maureen L (Dec 2019)
2-HOUR VIDEO SESSION
To make some quick improvements, to your freestyle swimming Team Atomica offers 2-hour clinic. In this video swim clinic, all athletes are filmed above and underwater, and the videos are watched to identify your 1-2 most pressing technical issues. You will are given specific recommendations on how to make improvements to your stroke’s efficiency.
1-HOUR VIDEO SESSION
This clinic is specifically for Team Atomica members fall-winter swim participants. The video session gives a quick snapshot of where your technique is at! Seeing yourself swim can make a big difference in understanding what changes you need to make. During this session, you are videotaped both above and underwater. Immediately after being videotaped, you and the coach will view and analyse the video to identify 1-2 key areas to focus on for future improvements. A great way to track change over time, establish a baseline of technique or to check back in if it’s been a while since you’ve seen yourself swim.
