The Cleveland Triathlon Club has partnered with 140.6 club sponsor, Liquid Lifestyles, to bring you a custom program to help you develop or improve your triathlon swimming technique during the off-season. This custom program is adapted from their proven Freestyle Fundamentals and Advanced Freestyle curriculum. In addition to the core content from those courses, the series will also cover triathlon specific skills including: open water sighting techniques, drafting skills, buoy turns, dealing with open water anxiety, deep water treading, dolphin diving, and entry/exit strategies. Athletes who complete the class will leave with the knowledge and skills required to continue to improve their technique and most will be able to “graduate” to Liquid ‘N Durance or other local master’s programs.
Cost to current Cleveland Triathlon Cub members is $100 (with $249 OFF Coupon Code). Coupon code can be found by logging into the Cleveland Triathlon Club’s website.
The class will be on Sunday’s from 9:00 - 10:30 AM at the Brooklyn Rec Center (7600 Memphis Ave., Brooklyn, Ohio 44144) for eight consecutive sessions beginning on January 5th concluding on February 23rd.
