"I had a great experience with the adult swim clinic at the ARC. I grew up swimming and knew the basics, but hadn't had any feedback on my form since grade school. I signed up for Stroke Development 1, told the instructor what my goals were, and she prepared a program specifically suited to my goals. Together in four lessons we really cleaned up my strokes, making me a much more effective and efficient swimmer, and I learned how to flip turn to boot. I work every day and come swim for a short time before classes in the evenings, and it is such a great way to transition between those two areas of my life. I highly recommend taking advantage of the Aquatics resources at UTC and the Swim Clinics in particular.

Amazing resource, great people!"  Andrew Arehart
