Technique Swim Clinics Program Description
Complete Performance Technique Swim Clinic
Complete Performance Clinics conducted in September and March teach sportsmanship, skill progressions, challenging swim sets, swim training technology, strength training, nutrition, starts, turns, finishes, goal setting, visualization, relaxation and racing strategies as well as leadership. Complete Performance Clinics also address such topics as injury prevention, college preparation and banned substance education for college prep swimmers. Both speed and endurance are our goal for this Clinic is help develop a well-rounded swimmer by emphasizing all four-strokes. This Clinic teaches its swimmers that aerobic endurance is necessary to perform high intensity training required later in their swimming careers. Our goal for this Clinic to emphasize the spiritual processes which solidify our Bible based sports training program along with the physical and mental processes by which swimming knowledge is acquired through perception, reasoning and intuition.
Devotional Technique Swim Clinic
This Clinic conducted in August represents the heart and the passion of Trinity Fellowship Church Sports Ministry. We want all of our athletes to have an intimate loving relationship with Jesus. This Clinic allows us to share our faith and our love of Jesus Christ with our athletes and their families. The purpose of this Clinic is to introduce our athletes to Jesus Christ, by creating opportunities to serve through swimming. Our Teams motto is, “I swim for Jesus”. Our mission statement is, “Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” John 13:34. All of us are aware that there are numerous things in this world competing for the hearts and minds of God’s children. George Barner, Directing Leader of the Barner Group once said, “It’s a race to the heart of a child and the first one who gets there wins.” Swimming is a part of our Culture, it is exciting and inviting. Our sole purpose in life is to obey God and serve others, impacting them with the knowledge of Jesus Christ which leads to Everlasting Life. LOVE Swimming provides a phenomenal platform and countless ways for us to meet and share our faith and the love of Jesus Christ letting them know that living God’s way makes life productive and fulfilling. It’s a great opportunity to share God’s covenant to love us, accept us, and forgive us. We inform our swimmers that they only way for anyone to enjoy the benefits of God’s promises is to obey Him. We share our faith letting everyone know that when we obey God, we find peace with Him, with others, and with ourselves. True prosperity and fulfillment come as a result of obeying God. God love us and all He wants is a people set apart to worship Him. He love us so much that he gives us the freedom to choose to obey Him because without choice, we would be like prisoners and our obedience would be hollow. At LOVE Swimming everyone is a winner, it’s is not that they might be or could be, it is that they are a winner because God made us that way, promising to help and protect us, all we have to do is follow His plan of living. We have plans to conduct 2 Devotional Technique Swim Clinic each year with our inaugural one to be conducted in September 2008. Devotional Technique Swim Clinic is all about: (1) A happy future and (2) The Bible a Book that reveals the knowledge of God.
