Olympic Swim & Health Club

This is a series of 3 2-hour swim clinics to help prepare triathletes for open water triathlon swimming.  Each clinic is coached by Total Immersion Master Coach Suzanne Atkinson, MD.   Use this Event booking page to secure a spot in each of the 3 clinics at a savings of $30.  Normal price $50 for each clinic individually.   Purchase all three for $120.  All clinics are held at the Olympic Swim & Health Club in Penn Hills.   If you would like to attend only 1 or 2 events, please use that events booking form instead of this one.

Clinic #1 Effortless Endurance, May 25th, 2013   8 am – 10am

Clinic #2  Easy Speed, June 15th, 2013 8 am – 10 am  (<–note updated date, SAT June 15th)

Clinic #3 Open Water Skills, July 6th, 2013 8 am – 10 am

Note that a Tempo Trainer is a required tool for Clinic #2 and must be purchased separately as well. (~$35)

We recommend that male students wear a Speedo-type brief or close-fitting triathlon swim shorts, rather than loose-fitting swim trunks, which can make balance even more of a challenge.
