Ian Thorpe and his Coach Tracey Menzies will both be in attendance at the clinic along with other Olympic swimmers Simon Cowley and Kirsten Thompson as well as highly qualified swimming coaches who will put the participants through their paces. Another guest to be attending the swim clinic to pass on valuable words of wisdom to the young swimmers of today is former Australian Olympian Shane Gould.

"The clinic is open to all budding young swimmers, boys and girls who are aged between 9 and 15 years of age who can swim continuously for a minimum of 50 metres. The day long program introduces the participant to new training methods, provide them with expert tuition and tips on stroke technique, diet and dry land training as well as providing a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet and interact with World Champion swimmer Ian Thorpe and his fellow Olympians" said YourGame Swimming Managing Director Mr. Dean Gilchrist.

"YourGame Swimming is very excited to be able to provide such a unique opportunity for all those future champions of Australian swimming with what we intend to make an annual event. We hope that many children take this opportunity to participate in what Ian and we believe will be an extremely enjoyable day as well as providing the opportunity for the children to personally wish Ian the best of luck prior to the 2004 Athens Summer Olympics".
