The Stone Harbor Triathlon Swim Clinic is designed for triathletes of all levels interested in improving their race-day skills.  During the clinic, participants will learn about keeping the course, drafting, swimming in the pack, and other important race-day swim objectives!  This clinic will help you to feel confident and ready for the open water swim on your race day!
