Please read the following information and agree below before proceeding to the Start Clinic Registration Form.


Our FREE Start Clinics are a great opportunity to gain experience and improve racing starts! Swimmers learn how to dive from either the side of the pool or the starting block.
 
No fees are required for Start Clinics; however, pre-registration is required. Spots are limited and are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. You may register for Start Clinics online using this form, at the front desk, or at (480) 961-SWIM (7946).
 
Start Clinics are offered once a month, February through October. Start Clinics are held on Saturday afternoons and usually consist of 30 minutes of dive practice and 15 minutes of swim racing.
 
Start Clinics are held at either the Chandler High School pool or the McClintock High School pool, depending on pool availability. Start Clinics are not held at Gold Medal Swim School.
 
The date and location of upcoming Start Clinics are listed in Swim Team Newsletters, posted on the Swim Team Calendar, and included in the slideshow in the GMSS lobby approximately 2 to 3 weeks in advance.
 
Swimmers enrolled in Swim Team 1, Swim Team 2, Swim Team 3, or High School Prep are encouraged to attend Start Clinics. Swimmers enrolled in Summer Swim Team are welcome to attend in June and July.
 
If your swimmer is new to Swim Team, or has not completed 300 or more inverted (head-first) dives from the side of the pool, they should attend Session I, the New Diver Clinic.
 
If your swimmer has completed more than 300 dives, or can dive from the blocks, they should attend Session II, the Returning Diver Clinic.
 
If you are unsure which Start Clinic to attend, please ask your coach or the Competitive Department Leader.
 
Parents/guardians are encouraged to stay, watch, and cheer for their swimmer in the grass or spectator areas during Start Clinics. Gold Medal coaches are happy to answer parent/guardian questions before or after Start Clinics but reserve the Start Clinic itself for coach’s instruction.
 
Parent/guardian volunteers are needed to assist with timing during the 15-minute Time Trial at the end of each Start Clinic. No experience is necessary.
 
Upon submission of this form, you will receive an Automatic Reply email confirmation that your request has been received and your status is pending. Start Clinic Registrations are processed in the order they are received.
 
If space is available in the session you request, we will reserve your spot and you will receive a booking confirmation email from the Competitive Department Leader. If we are unable to accommodate your request, you will receive an email from the Competitive Department Leader indicating this.
