If you're struggling with freestyle, or simply looking for refinements that will improve your performance, this is the group for you.  Our commitment to both technique and training sets us apart from other masters swim groups. You can expect your coaches to jump in with you for hands on demonstrations and corrections. Video feedback is an every day teaching tool, not a high priced extra. We offer an unmatched commitment to doing things the right way.

 David L: "I swam with a masters team for 2 years and knew I was doing things wrong. All I heard was 'you're fine.' With Stroke Doctor TriSwim I received more feedback in 2 days than I got in 2 years. I'm 35 seconds per 100 faster and getting better every day."
