Level 2 – The Stroke School-  $115

Tuesday, September 3, 1-6pm

The ASCA Level 2 School was created 100% by internationally renowned swimming technique analyst Russell Mark. The course in which he offers state of the art video of world class athletes, is designed to help coaches achieve a professional knowledge base for teaching effective technique and proper mechanics, while simultaneously reinforcing healthy progressions for athlete development. This course breaks down every important aspect of the stroke into fine detail and gives coaches some basic ideas for progressions that can be easily built on.  If you have taken Level 2 before with another teacher, we guarantee this version with Russell is worth repeating.
