USMS and Pacific Northwest LMSC  are hosting a stroke development and improvement clinic for swimmers of all abilities. All four strokes will be evaluated and corrected with the use of drills and coach instruction. Several of the top coaches in Seattle will be on hand, along with mentor coaches Mel Goldstein and Bill Brenner, to help you improve your technique and teach you drills that will enable you to continue to refine your stroke. Swimmers are not required to swim all strokes and may work on only those strokes they choose.
