Stroke improvement and advanced techniques
For high level competitive swimmers ages 11+
North Jersey Aquatics has a strong vision to help national level athletes reach their full potential. This curriculum is designed for competitive swimmers, from those just beginning a swimming career to those posting times at the national level and working towards college scholarships. It is also open to local college-level swimmers or those home on break from college program. We know that coaches do not always have the time to go over details, so our goal is to teach your swimmers what they should be focusing on in practice, improve starts turns and other aspects of their races, and overall become stronger and more confident in their swimming.
From a mental perspective, we also know that athletes are looking for guidance in how to mentally prepare for races, achieve higher levels, and deal with the grueling day in and day out schedules. Part of our lessons will be spent giving your athletes the tools they need for success in higher level athletes as well as in life!
North Jersey Aquatic Club offers private stroke technique lessons in either a one on one or a two swimmer, one coach format. These lessons are typically one hour long and focus on all aspects of swimming mechanics. After discussing technique goals with the swimmer, our coaches will evaluate the athlete’s mechanics and determine a course of action that will most appropriately and efficiently target the technique deficiencies. We believe that the discussion of what we are going to do, and why we are going to do it, is crucial to the swimmer’s success in learning new skills. Our technique coaches each have many years of coaching experience at summer league, high school, USA Swimming, and YMCA teams and are all well regarded stroke technicians. We utilize digital videography both above and below the water to assist in our technique correction.
