Welcome to the 2023 Forest Park Spring Clinic Registration
About Spring Clinic
We are excited to be able to offer spring stroke clinics at Forest Park Swim Club again! The goal of our clinics is to get experienced swimmers ready for the season and for getting new swimmers ready to join the team as swimmers need to regain a feel for the water after being out for several months. Our focus is strictly on technique, with one week spent on each stroke; starts/turns mixed in. While we may be able to take a very small group of beginners, the spring session is NOT a learn-to-swim program. Forest Park will be offering lessons this summer for beginners.
The 2023 Spring Clinics will run for four weeks starting on March 6th and finishing up on March 30th. Swimmers can register for either 3 days per week or 4 days per week (Monday – Thursday). All swimmers must be in good standing with both the Forest Park Flyers and Forest Park Swim Club before the first day of clinics. Coach Jeff will be heading up the program again with an experienced group of coaches helping him out. In order to provide the swimmers with a small swimmer-to-coach ratio, we limit the total number of swimmers.
