50 swimmers will be instructed on the best ways to swim from Alcatraz to shore.
This is a clinic geared towards swimmers wanting to learn the best way to cross from Alcatraz to Shore .
This is very valuable experience so that on your special crossing day you don’t encounter any unwelcome surprise – you are ready! Swimmers will learn about and practice their sighting, and “feel” the water near the finish. You will learn about the currents you might expect during your crossings and plan your route accordingly.
Upon request, our WWS coaches will critique your stroke and provide you with suggestions to make your stroke more efficient and faster. This is a wonderful experience with a great group of people in a non-competitive environment.
Your registration is non-refundable. Please review our refund and rollover policies before registering.
