Gold Swim Clinics

The GOAL of California Gold is to teach kids how to swim.

We work to build confidence and teach lifelong lessons in water safety so that children learn to love, respect and always be comfortable in any aquatic environment whether it’s the neighborhood pool, rivers and lakes, or the ocean. We want you to be comfortable in the water.

ANY swimmer, on ANY team, at ANY level is welcome to attend our swim clinics!

Since 2010 we've worked to raise the level of competition swimming in the central valley, and we welcome any swimmer to attend our clinic whether you swim for us or not.

Join us for a long axis [freestyle and backstroke] turns clinic where we work on flip turns, as well as streamlines and underwater kicking, and the breakout.

  • There is no stroke that has seen more rule changes in the past decade then breaststroke. In this clinic we will be working on the turn, as well as the changes we've seen in the past few years with the pull down. This is a clinic you do not want to miss.
  • In the advanced clinic we will be also be introducing some breaststroke drills and why we do them. These were taught to Coach Clay when he swam for Coach Ray Looze at UOP. Coach Looze had numerous Breaststroke swimmers on the US Olympic team in 2016.
