Learn how to gain scoring advantages with better water entries and dive quality. Utilize our bubbler and safety spotting harnesses to get those trouble dives you’ve been struggling with! Coach Sochor will do video presentations to help campers understand the physics and advantages behind proper mechanics.
Two water sessions plus video presentation each day. Lunch and Buckeye t-shirt included!


Considered the premier collegiate competition pool in the country, clinics are held in the newly renovated Bill and Mae McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion, which was officially dedicated in 2005, and most recently hosted the USA Swimming Winter National Championships in December 2017. In 2018, the McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion hosted the Women’s B1G Swimming and Diving Championships, the Women’s NCAA Division I Swimming and Diving Championships and the TYR Pro Series event. The McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion can be configured to support long-course meter training, short course meter training or short course yards training with a separate diving well/spa on deck.
