Open Water Swim Clinics:
Open water swim clinics will be held to improve, perfect and get comfortable with training and racing in the open water. Open water swimming has its own feel and takes some practice. We will discuss topics that include what you might face in a race: bumping, nudging, sighting techniques, in water starts, beach starts, breathing, turning and becoming disoriented. We will also review safety issues and tips on how to keep athletes away from potentially hazardous situations. Then we will head into the water to practice all the topics discussed. I will hold these clinics privately, semi-privately, or for a big group.
Open Water Swim Practices will be more swimming and less instruction. We will have a quick instruction session and get right into the workout. For these practices, be prepared to do interval training, distance, sprints, etc. I will coach to the groups' ability level.
Sessions will be held at Dutch Springs in Bethlehem, Pa. The charge per scheduled session will be $25 each or $60 if you buy a 3 session clinic package. Private and semi-private clinics will be $50. Payment will be by check or cash - checks can be made out to K17SPORT Fitness. The clinic price above DOES NOT include the price to get into the facility - there is a link at the bottom of this page to make payment to facility and to fill out waiver.
All athletes must wear a wetsuit in the Dutch Spring facility - that is their policy.

Transition Clinics will be held at a race site that the athlete is racing at. I will take athlete or athletes through a mock transition for the swim to bike transition as well as the bike to run transition. We will go over everything to prepare the athlete to be ready for race day. We look at the way the transition area is set up and give strategies to help athlete move quickly and efficiently as they make their way to the next discipline. I hold these clinics privately, semi-private or for small groups. Pricing depends on where the race is located. Will also hold mock transition clinics as a stand alone and not associated with a race.
Race Course Clinics:
I will take athletes on a turn by turn drive through of the bike and run course, going through everything they should be looking for and what should be going through there mind as they progress through the course. We will come up with a race day strategy on how to attack the course. We will also go through what the athlete might encounter as the race unfolds and give tips on how to overcome these unforeseen issues. We will also go through the swim course and come up with a strategy for that discipline as well. Figure where the athlete should start and give sighting tips and other tips that will give them an advantage as they make their way through the course.
Pricing will depend on location of race - Please contact for final pricing and if you have any questions.
