It’s been over ten years since my first of many visits to train at The Race Club. Now, more than ever, as a Division 1 Big 10 Collegiate Swimmer at Rutgers University I’m reminded every day just how lucky I am to have a Race Club Stroke foundation in my toolbox. Nothing can prepare you for the demands of training and competing at this level like a foundation with Dr. Gary Hall Sr. And the entire TRC family. In a most recent practice the three styles of freestyle were introduced and many team members hadn’t ever been exposed to them. It takes years of practice and repetition to hone technique and many year round age group programs don’t emphasize stroke development. I’m so happy I got my start early at The Race Club.
