Any coaches that have a swimmer in attendance are welcome to join the session free of cost - just let us know in advance! (email samantha@headtohead.ca )

We keep our clinics as small group sessions so that each swimmer (no matter their level, ages 10 - 16) will benefit from the clinic and get time with the athlete.
