Dara Torres Swim Clinic in Boise a Success!

The Swim Clinic given by AquAbility Honorary Board Member Dara Torres at Boise State University was a fantastic event.  Dara gave a lively talk covering her life as a swimmer through her Olympic experiences, interspersed with training methods, tips for overcoming anxiety in competition, nutrition, and dry land training.  Following her talk, Dara coached the participants in the pool, working on specific drills for maximizing efficiency with body position, and pulling and kicking techniques.  Clinic participants all found the clinic beneficial and fun.  After the clinic, Dara joined with AquAbility participants for a photo opportunity.

Thank you, Dara, for helping raise money for AquAbility Programs!
