About This Activity

Take your swim to the next level: Increase speed, strength and competence in the water

Triathletes have a unique challenge when it comes to the swim: most races happen in open water, but training happens mostly in the pool. Coach Melissa Mantak, former ITU World Cup Champion, USAT National Coach of the Year and USAT National Development Coach, brings decades of experience to helping you reach your goals. I took my swim coaching skills to a new level working with potential Olympians on the National Development Team, teaching fast runners to be fast swimmers.  This experience coupled with working as the official Tri for the Cure coach for 10 years, I dialed in the best techniques for coaching intermediate triathletes, just like you.

Who this clinic is for:

  • Intermediate triathlon swimmers
  • Have one or more years experience in triathlon
  • Want to make positive, lasting improvements to your swim
  • Want to conquer the water!

Skills and techniques you will learn:

  • Breathing skills for endurance, strength and speed
  • Timing and coordination of the breathing, kick and pull
  • Drills for endurance, strength and speed
  • Your strengths and weaknesses through stroke analysis
  • How to turn your weaknesses into strengths
  • Save time by focusing on what is most important
  • Stop fear and panic in open water before it starts
  • Perform in the open water
  • Grow your confidence and competence in the swim
  • Stay healthy and avoid injury
  • Increase motivation to swim
  • Learn the benefits of underwater filming

Because I’m committed to your continued success, you will receive 8 customized swim workouts to grow the improvements you make during the clinic. Walk away with a plan to get your swim to the next level.

Attendees must be able to swim 400 yards or meters non-stop, at a 100 pace of 2:30 minutes per 100, or faster.
