Three Olympians to teach swimming in Voorheesville, NY

The Fitter and Faster Swim Tour presented by will be coming to Voorheesville, NY on May 18th for an educational and fun-filled swim clinic.  Local swimmers will learn the essentials of fast, smart swimming from Olympians Peter Vanderkaay, Kara Lynn Joyce, and Klete Keller.  The clinic will be held at Voorheesville High School, 432 New Salem Rd., Voorheesville, NY 12186 on May 18th from 11:00AM – 3:00PM


Vanderkaay is a three-time Olympian, four-time Olympic medalist, and world record holder.  At the 2012 Games he was named team captain – a testament to his leadership and respect in the sport.  Hailed as one of the greatest American freestylers, he has been an instrumental part of Team USA’s dominance.


Joyce is a three-time Olympian and 26-time All American who will teach swimmers some of the drills and skills that have enabled her to continuously improve her freestyle over the years and remain one of the fastest in the world.


Keller anchored the Gold medal 800m free relay at the 2004 Olympics that broke Australia’s 7-year undefeated streak in that event!  He is a three-time Olympian and five-time Olympic medalist.


Participants will:

·      Watch Peter, Klete, and Kara swim at full speed and demonstrate their near-flawless stroke

·      Practice drills and improve technique in the water

·      Ask questions during a Q&A open to children and parents

·      Take photos with Peter, Klete, and Kara and get autographs


These world-class swimmers will be conducing the clinics as part of the Fitter and Faster Swim Tour Presented by (“FFT”). FFT is a national swim clinic tour featuring over 30 of the world’s best swimmers.
