Free Coaches Clinic - February 10th

Pac Masters is launching the first in a series of stroke clinics we plan to hold in 2013. This particular clinic will be led by Coach Scott Williams and Coach Cokie Lepinski and will cover the short-axis strokes of butterfly and breaststroke. 


The clinic will take place in Novato (Marin County) at the Indian Valley Campus of College of Marin - 1800 Ignacio Valley Rd, Novato. Hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Coaches will have two hours in the classroom and then head to the pool deck where they will work with swimmers to identify and correct stroke deficiencies. 


The clinic is free to Pac Masters coaches, with a $25 charge for swimmers. All coaches and swimmers must be USMS registered. For further information and to register, contact Cokie at or 415-827-5672.
