USMS Stroke Development and Improvement Clinic for Swimmers - Berkeley Heights, NJ

USMS is sponsoring a USMS 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.  Mel Goldstein and Dominic Latella will be on hand 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.
