During our Alcatraz clinics, swimmers are transported to Alcatraz by boat. Once we arrive at Alcatraz the participants swim parallel to the island to experience sighting and feel the currents of the bay. After the swimmers return to the boat they are taken to the potato patch where they can experience the rough water directly in front of Alcatraz.
This is very valuable experience so that on race day you don't encounter an unwelcome surprise-you are ready! The last jump is usually near the destination of the race and swimmers practice their sighting, and "feel" the water near the cove opening to Aquatic Park, the steps of the Saint Francis Yacht Club or Crissy Field. You will learn about the currents you might expect during your race and plan your route accordingly.
Upon request our WWS coaches will critique your stroke and provide you with suggestions to make your stroke more efficient and faster. This is a wonderful experience with a great group of people in a non-competitive environment.
Many swimmers who have trained with us during our clinics have reported better times in their competitions this year, plus they felt strong and confident during their race.
