TRC MASTERS CLINIC Dear Masters Swimmers, From February 7-10, 2020, The Race Club will be hosting its first USMS Clinic in Islamorada, Florida Keys. We are truly excited about this opportunity to help Masters Swimmers and our new partnership with USMS. Our History For years we have included Masters Swimmers in our traditional camps but this Clinic will be directed to USMS swimmers only. The focus of the four-day clinic will be on swimming technique and we will modify the teaching to be specific and adaptable for USMS Swimmers. Daily Classes and Exercises We start each morning session with a 45-minute lecture/discussion on the important topics of fundamentals of science in swimming, strength training, recovery, nutrition, and mental training. We follow that with 2 hours of swimming technique in the water after which we take a break, during this time you can rest, relax or grab some lunch at one of the great restaurants in Islamorada. After the break, we will reconvene in the afternoon for some dryland and more swimming techniques in the water. Our approach to improving your swimming technique in all four strokes is very scientific. How can we reduce frontal drag? How can we increase propulsion? How can we conform better to the law of inertia? If you can achieve all three, we promise you will swim faster. Specific Help For You We will teach you the best age-adjusted dryland exercises, techniques of swimming faster in all four strokes, how to improve starts and turns, and the secret to improving your kicking speed. We will even throw in a little Race Club dryland training, just so you don’t go home feeling too rested. Social On one evening, USMS will host a social gathering at one of our favorite Keys restaurants. There will be a large variety of seafood and drinks available for all! T-shirt and flip flop attire are accepted. Beauty Of The Keys If you have never been to the Keys, you should come. If not for swimming, it is truly one of the most enjoyable places in the world. Besides that, it will be nice and warm as compared to most parts of the country. Those of you that have been to the Keys know that it is a special place. I hope you will join us for our inaugural USMS/Race Club camp in the Florida Keys. If you register before January 7, you will receive a $200 discount. We promise you will have a great time and improve your tan. Thanks to our intense swimming regiment you might even go home swimming a little faster. Yours in swimming, Gary Sr.
