San Jose, CA (January 29, 2015) - SwimOutlet.com, the web's most popular swim shop, has renewed its long-standing partnership with the Fitter & Faster Swim Tour Presented by SwimOutlet.com. The Fitter & Faster Swim Tour is the leading series of swim clinics and camps in the nation featuring Olympians and elite athletes who have appeared at more than 600 events across the U.S. since the tour's founding over 5 years ago.
SwimOutlet.com has been the tour's longest partner and a presenting sponsor since 2010 and will continue its support in 2015 and 2016 with more than 150 competitive swimming clinics for participants of all ages and abilities on the calendar annually.
"The Fitter & Faster Swim Tour Presented by SwimOutlet.com has developed into an incredibly popular offering of professionally-managed swim clinics that features everything that we love about swimming: fitness, inspiration, challenge and fun," said Rob Penner, VP, Sports Marketing at SwimOutlet.com. "The tour's athletes and clinicians are incredible teachers and role models. Each custom curriculum is the best one-day clinic and weekend camp that can be found in the country."
"We're proud to have SwimOutlet.com renew as presenting sponsor as we continue to enhance and multiply our offering of high-quality swim clinics and camps across the U.S. Our top priority is to offer the best learning experience in competitive swimming in the world for swimmers of all ages and abilities week-in-week-out at local clubs and pools," said David Arluck, Founder & CEO of the Fitter & Faster Swim Tour. "Support of industry leaders like SwimOutlet.com enables us to provide a higher level of value to participants and has been critical in delivering the best product in the country."
For 2015, the Fitter & Faster Swim Tour has a new curriculum director on board with three-time Olympian Kara Lynn Joyce working with FFT management and clinic hosts to deliver customized and top-quality swim clinics for participants. FFT has also launched a coach's program as part of the swim clinics, providing insights and seminars for coaches at clinics throughout the year. They have also initiated a regular series of Water Polo Clinics featuring national team and Olympic stars for the first time.
"We take great care in the development of Fitter & Faster curriculums. Over the past six months we have begun to offer many more narrowly-focused clinics that provide tremendous value to participants, parents and coaches," adds Arluck. "We have been offering sessions that have minimum and maximum time standards; clinics that focus solely on IM transitions; camps that focus on Speed and Power for swimmers with minimum time standards; Open Water racing; Dry-land training; parent seminars led by parent of Olympians... and much more. We have also developed more offerings for clinics that limit the number of participants who can attend. There is something for everyone."
The Fitter & Faster Swim Tour is also the producer of the award-winning "Swim Like a Champion" DVD series that is carried exclusively online by SwimOutlet.com and was selected as a "Silver Winner" - its highest honor - in the 35th Annual Telly Awards for video production.
