From USASwimming.org:

In July 2009, USA Swimming initiated a collaborative partnership with four swim teams in the city of Detroit. The purpose of this two year project is to learn how USA Swimming can help impact swimming in an underserved urban environment by providing expertise in the form of clinics, site visits and coach mentoring. As a pilot program, the goal is to develop a working model of programming that is transferable to other similar environments. USA Swimming thanks the outstanding swimmers, coaches and parents of the Tigersharks Swim Team, Leroy Dues Swim Team, Razor Aquatics and the Detroit Recreation Swim Team for their enthusiastic participation and collaboration in this project.

This is great footage. The kicking drills and fingertip drags and successfully using the kickboards in circle swim with face out and elbows on the boards is going to be helpful for our "swim club" kids and our advanced beginner swim instructors! Thank you!

Great work Sue and Shaun! Thanks for continuing to empower young men and women and provide them with an attitude that they can do more than they thought they could.
