Please mark your calendar for the weekend of March 22-23, 2003. SPMA will be hosting a USMS Coach & Swimmer Clinic in Orange County, CA. The goals of the clinic are two-fold. One, to help swimmers improve, and two, to get coaches together to share ideas and learn from each other. The clinic will include helpful details on stroke mechanics, starts, turns, and racing strategies for all events. Each swimmer will receive video analysis of their stroke, starts, and turns. The guest Mentor Coach will be Kerry O'Brien from the Walnut Creek Masters in Northern California. His program has consistantly been one of the top teams in the country for over 15 years.
