Not sure if you're ready?
Take a clinic before you decide!
Clinics teach the fundamentals of open water swimming and efficient transitions as they relate to successful triathlon racing. Learn the ins and outs of the water, sighting and swimming in a straight line, methods to manage nervousness or panic and strategies for smart racing. You'll be a safer swimmer, a faster swimmer and a confident swimmer. We offer options to bike or run the applicable race courses after the clinic.
About Swim Velocity & TriLaVie - programs of coach Martha Szufnarowski
Swim Velocity &TriLaVie together comprise Orange County’s largest triathlon organization providing group and personal coaching for all levels of triathletes. Our specialty is guiding people new to the sport who are seeking a high quality, personalized experience. All our activities include knowledgeable coaching, focused training goals, connection with fellow athletes and unparalleled professionalism. Coaching is our passion!
Each clinic consists of three (3) main parts: lecture, skills and drills in the water, full-distance race prep swim. Additionally, we'll address transitions, wetsuit management, and the all-important acclimation process. (Be sure to ask the coach about this dirty little secret of our sport!)
Swim Velocity & TriLaVie Open Water Swim Clinics focus on race preparation for triathlons. The skills taught are applicable to any triathlon swim including sighting, crowd control, managing panic, rhythmic breathing and endurance.
Founder & Head Coach Martha Szufnarowski has assembled a team of experts who will take you on a triathlon swim adventure! We've guided hundreds of athletes to successful swim and triathlon experiences. We teach solid training and racing strategies so your experience is safe, satisfying and fun! We've done triathlons including Ironman and Open Water Swim Challenges. We coach adult swim programs throughout Orange County year-round.
Your safety is our top priority. Swim Velocity & TriLaVie provide the highest level of attention to water support. Each clinic is overly staffed with coaches, water safety instructors, lifeguards and swim angels to support you in the water and provide encouragement.
You must be water-safe and able to stay afloat with moderate comfort. Participants who can swim at least 800 yards in a pool will benefit most from the clinic, but it's not required. We'll divide you into groups by swim ability and comfort in the water. Whether you are new to open water or want to focus on race techniques for fast finishes, you'll get the coaching you need to take you to the next level.
Bring swim gear - bathing suit, goggles, towel, water and/or fuel replacement drink and a nutritious snack. For your comfort, bring a beach chair for the lecture portion. WETSUITS ARE MANDATORY.
Don’t have a wetsuit yet? TriZone provides the greatest variety of styles and sizes to rent.
