Adult Swim Conditioning
For the 15th year, SRA offers evening adult swim clinics led by Collegiate Head Swim Coach Mike Stott. To register, or for answers to questions, please contact Mike at michaeljstott@comcast.net or 288-8808; (cell: 921-8808). $100 per eight class session; Drop-ins welcome at $15 per class.

If you have been thinking about joining either of the SRA Adult Swim Clinics stop thinking and JUST DO IT! The Stroke Clinic will focus on correct technique and how to swim the four basic strokes of freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly. If you are a confirmed lap swimmer or a lap swimmer hopeful this session will get you going. Two other reasons to get on board might be to better understand what your children do on the swim team. Or perhaps you have visions of entering a KILLER Family Relay on the 4th of July. For those of you who once learned to swim and want a refresher the first eight sessions of Clinic 1 (Stroke Clinic) are for you. What was taught years ago is not what is being taught now.

Session One: Stroke Clinic, June 13—June 29
We’ll have excellent demonstration by some of the state’s best swimmers. No time trials unless requested. Among our many graduates are Dabney Carr, Elizabeth and Alex Bolin, Jane Nelson, Parker Hale, Johanna Minich, Wiley Hunnicutt and Caroline Kettlewell-Sites. Open to all levels of swimmers.
Dates & Time: 7–8 p.m., Tues., June 13; Thurs., June 15; Sun., June 18; Tues., June 20; Thurs., June 22; Sun. June 25; Tues., June 27; Thurs., June 29.
Meet at the Upper Pool rain or shine. Note that we may go as late as 8:30 on any of these classes.
If you have fins, bring them. If you do not, email me your shoe size and I will bring fins for you.

Session Two: Conditioning Clinic, July 6-23
Focus is on conditioning and gaining speed. Last year’s attendees made considerable gains in their aerobic capacity and, aside from some snide remarks to the coach, appeared to be appreciative of the opportunity to stretch themselves in a supervised swimming setting.
Dates & Time: 7–8 p.m., Thurs., July 6; Sun., July 9; Tues., July 11.; Thurs. July 13; Sun. July 16; Tues., July 18; Thurs., July 20; Sun., July 23.

Adult Private Swim Lessons
In recent years, SRA adults have asked for private lessons (adult or summer league swimmers) when clinic times have not suited work and family schedules. Collegiate Head Swim Coach Mike Stott offers these at $30 per half hour. Please contact him at michaeljstott@comcast.net or 288-8808, (cell) 921-8808.
For the second year: The Collegiate School is offering a stroke enhancement clinic for rising 6th- 11th graders from 1-5 p.m. the week of July 10th at the Collegiate School Aquatics Center. Contact Coach Stott for details.
