Olympian Beisel to lead STB youth swim clinic

Posted

Save The Bay will offer a youth swim clinic on Tuesday, June 29 led by Olympic medalist and Saunderstown native Elizabeth Beisel. Swimmers ages 8 to 18 are invited to register for the clinic, which will include a Q&A session, 60 minutes of pool time, and the opportunity to take photos and collect autographs from the Olympian, who will also be reprising her role as Swim Ambassador at the 45th annual Save The Bay Swim on July 17.

“We are thrilled to kick off the swim season by offering young swimmers the opportunity to learn from Elizabeth,” said Save The Bay Events Manager Leanne Danielsen. “Her enthusiasm for both the sport and Narragansett Bay is contagious, and we know that all of our clinic participants will leave the pool inspired—and with a few new swimming tricks to take to their next swimming event!”

“The Bay plays a huge role in our lives as Rhode Islanders,” Beisel said in a statement. “I know that our local waters were a big part of why I fell in love with swimming when I was younger. I can’t wait to share my swim journey and tips with some of the Ocean State’s up-and-coming swimmers, and to support Save The Bay’s important work in the process.”

The clinic will take place from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Pods Swimming located at 111 Commercial Way, East Providence, R.I. Registration ($50) is required, and interested parties can sign up at savebay.org/swim-clinic. All proceeds will support Save The Bay’s mission to protect and improve Narragansett Bay.
