Learn Backstroke and Breaststroke


What to Expect

Learn Stroke Drills and Efficiency

Strokes are the "choreography" of swimming that makes movement in water efficient. The 2 Strokes Course focuses on learning the technique of breaststroke and backstroke: drills for each stroke, turns, and plenty of time to practice and ask questions. Students leave with recognizable breaststrokes and backstrokes! This course consists of ten 3-hour classes over seven days.

Each student will leave with either the whole strokes, or the drills needed to complete them with a little more practice at home.

  • Balance, line, kick, and propulsion

What if I wear contacts/glasses?

You may wear them under goggles if you wish. Or, you can buy goggles that have your prescription ground into them. Choose a pair of goggles that fit your face and don’t leak, first. Then have them ground.

Should I eat before class?

We recommend eating lightly but enough that hunger won’t distract you in class. Remember we are on land for an hour before we get into the pool.
