The clinic includes teaching sitting dives through to racing dives, appropriate to the swimmers ability. The session will also introduce swimmers to competitive starts and if a swimmer already perform this competently, to further improve their starting and underwater technique.

The objectives of the turns aspect within the session is to introduce and improve the swimmers' turning ability in all regards, with a focus on tumble turns. If a swimmer already performs turns to a good standard then the next step would be to further improve their turning technique following into the breakout.
