The 2020 Olympics are just around the corner so we’re diving into the new year with the return of Swim with the Stars clinic in January.

Swim with the Stars is a fantastic opportunity for swimmers aged 15 years and under to improve their skills and techniques with Australian swimming representatives Matt Wilson, Brad Woodward and Meg Bailey.

The champion trio will share their techniques and experiences to help young swimmers improve their race day performance and reach their full potential.

The clinic will also feature sessions with national swim team coach and physiotherapist, Adam Kable and Performance Swimming Coach and physiologist Jake Hodgetts.

Session topics throughout the day include:
– Freestyle technique and turns
– Managing energy levels for swim meets and training
– Backstroke technique, starts and turns
– Breaststroke technique and pull outs
– Butterfly technique and dives

The day will also include a Q&A with Adam Kable, Matt Wilson, Brad Woodward and Meg Bailey where they will give insight into how they manage nerves, what they eat on race day, how they balanced school and swim training and how they stay motivated.

There will also be opportunity for photos and signings with the stars.
