USA Swimming National Team member Sean Ryan will host a swim clinic at his former club, McCallie/GPS Aquatics, on July 2 in his hometown of Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Ryan will share his story and pass on tips and advice to the club’s current athletes before leading a stroke clinic where he will provide a variety of demonstrations and drills. He will close out the clinic with an autograph session and photo opportunity.
“I am excited to do this because I will be able to directly give back to the community which helped shape me into the swimmer I am today,” said Ryan. “I hope that I can help the younger swimmers understand my passion and love for this sport.”
Ryan was a member of the club, formerly known as Scenic City Aquatic Club, beginning in 1998 and competed with the squad until he was 19.
Ryan’s appearance at McCallie/GPS Aquatics is part of USA Swimming’s Athlete Partnership Program. The program is a platform for National Team swimmer to encourage kids and adults to take up the sport as a healthy and positive activity. These appearances directly promote the sport and the healthy lifestyle it represents. To find more information about how to get started in the sport, visit SwimToday.org.
