For Non-Local Athletes (not based in CA or unable to come to CA at any point during program)

*The purpose of the Watlicam filming is for Tony/Maggie to evaluate your fundamental technique. If you are unable to get filmed with the Walicam (because of your location), Tony/Maggie will send you the drills to complete and you will have to find someone to film you underwater with a Go Pro or other waterproof camera

**For athletes that are not able to pass through the 6-8 Challenge (because you live overseas or there is no 6-8 clinic on the calendar in your city/region), Tony/Maggie will send you a series of slightly modified drills that you can complete on your own (will need someone to time you and record your results). Tony/Maggie will be able to provide you with the same training consultation
