Stroke Clinic Series

 Affordable, Flexible, and Fun!                 

Stay in shape, improve technique, have some fun… and do it on YOUR TERMS! Find all new flexibility with ABSC’s Stroke Clinic Series.

The Stroke Clinic series is a great way to get a taste of what club swimming is like without the commitment of joining our competitive groups. Our series of 5-week clinics offer great technique work with a flexible schedule and an affordable cost. Clinics are open to swimmers aged 5-16, and all clinics are taught by ABSC’s USA Swimming-certified coaching staff!


Registrations will open a few weeks prior to the beginning of each clinic session. Registration is now FULL for Session 2 of the Summer League Tune-up Clinic! Click Here to be on the waiting list: Tune-up Clinic Registration.

The entire fee for each swimmer will be due upon completion of the online form. $30 of the fee will be treated as a non-refundable deposit, and the remainder of the fee will become non-refundable as of 14-days prior to the beginning of each session.
