Stroke & Turn Clinic

Hatboro YMCA


Our competitive swim clinics are designed for swimmers ages 5 years – 18 years. Our experienced coaches cater to the elite athlete as well as swimmers who may be considering competitive swimming for the first time. We accommodate swimmers of varying skill levels. All levels devote a large amount of time to correct stroke technique, starts, turns, endurance, sports psychology as well as aerobic and anaerobic training.


The minimum requirement to enter is the ability to swim one length of front crawl with rotary breathing and one length of proper backstroke in the horizontal position. The swimmer should also be able to attempt a basic dive from the side of the pool.

What group should I sign-up for?

Bring your child to one of designated Testing Days listed below.  If you cannot make it to the assigned Testing Day, you may bring your child to one of the scheduled practices during the first week of clinic to have your swimmer tested and placed.  Our coaching staff will access their swimming abilities & suggest which group they should be placed in.  If your child cannot complete the requirements at this time, please look into the many levels of swim lessons that we offer here at the YMCA.


If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Aquatics Director Allison Holland at 215-674-4545 ext. 1122.
