Three U.S. Olympians visited the C.W. Avery Family YMCA in Plainfield on Sunday, April 13, to teach a swim clinic focused on helping area youth become better, more efficient swimmers.
Olympians Kara Lynn Joyce, Scott Weltz and Chloe Sutton led the clinic as a part of the Fitter and Faster Swim Tour, a nationwide swim program that conducted 115 clinics in 2013.
The four-hour event had a sold-out crowd of 120 children between the ages of seven and seventeen. Participants had the chance to learn various tips and techniques from swimming professionals, while taking part in pool workouts, dry land exercises and a question-answer session with the clinic’s leaders.
