Announcing a great opportunity for experienced high school and elite junior high school swimmers to sign up for a Swim Clinic on October 27th at UC to fine tune strokes and develop high-level competitive techniques. The Clinic includes elite instructors from The Ohio State University, Xavier University, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati Marlins, Sycamore High School, Anderson Barracudas, Mason Manta Rays among others. This Swim Clinic was created in memory of Jose Cerda, who passed away on October 26, 2010 during a swim practice. Its purpose is to help swimmers improve to the next level of performance and foster unity throughout the sport community.

New this year, Olympians such as Whitney Myers and Simon Burnett will share their swimming career experiences with student athletes.  In addition to being very inspirational, we expect this session to provide invaluable first-hand advice about the mental, social and health issues related to the sport

Many thanks for your partnership,
Luisa N. Cerda
On behalf of the Jose Cerda Aquatic Foundation Board
