Craig Sports Briefs for Jan. 22, 2014: MCHS to put on swimming clinic in Craig

The Moffat County High School swimmers and their coaches will host a swimming clinic Saturday to help anyone interested in improving their stroke.

The three-hour clinic at the high school will focus on technique, broken into three hourlong segments. The first segment, from 9 to 10 a.m., will focus on freestyle swimming. From 10 to 11 a.m., it will be backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly technique, and from 11 a.m. to noon, swimmers can learn about starting, turning and finishing properly.

Everyone is invited, so long as they can swim 25 meters across a pool unassisted.

The cost is $10 per segment or $25 for all three. For more information, call Meghan Francone at 970-756-8500.
