Lock Haven University Offering Stroke Clinics and Lessons

As a swimmer ages, stroke efficiency becomes even more important.  Pick up some tips at Lock Haven's 2-day 'Competitive Swim Clinic' in April to pick up that edge.  Not quite there for stroke work?  They are also offering swim lessons.  Lessons are completed in VERY small instructor to swimmer ratio (1-1 for younger swimmers, never more than 2-1 for advanced swimmers).  For more information, go here.).
