University of Richmond Hosts Kids Swim Clinics

The University of Richmond Swimming and Diving program hosts Sunday swim clinics for kids and adults starting on January 29. Registration is now open.  Participants are coached by University of Richmond varsity swimmers and assistant varsity swim coach Travis Stensby.

The traditional Spring Swim Stroke Clinic is open to anyone ages six and above (as of Jan. 29, 2012) and is geared specifically towards the improvement of the four competitive strokes, racing starts and turns. The 12-week clinic will be held on Sundays beginning on January 29, 2012, and feature three age-specific time slots. Each hour session has 50 available slots. Availability is provided on a “first come, first serve” basis.

New to the Richmond Swim Clinic series in 2012 will be a two-week Starts and Turns Clinic. The clinic will be geared solely towards the racing starts and turns of the four competitive strokes. This clinic, which is independent of the aforementioned 12-week Swim Clinic, is open to anyone ages 12 and above (as of Jan. 15, 2012). The two-week clinic will be held on Jan. 15 and Jan. 22, 2012 from 3-4:30 p.m. There will be 30 available slots, which will be offered on a “first come, first serve” basis.

Space is limited in both clinics, so those interested are encouraged to reserve and register early.

To register for the clinics, please email the designated information on the flyer to assistant swim coach Travis Stensby (tstensby [at]
