Please see the first of many drill / technique videos from the coaching staff! Please show your swimmers!
 

Hey Stingrays,

 
Coach Dave T. here. I am new to the Stingray coaching staff, but have been coaching the Y Masters for the past 15 plus years.
 
This is a new feature (technique videos) we are adding to this years Stingray program.
The Coaches hope this will allow our swimmers to visualize and grasp stroke concepts
faster.
 
Swimming "Down Hill" .  It refers to body position. We want our swimmers to keep their hips close to the surface in all strokes but especially the Breaststroke.  
 
Here is a video on keeping the hips high in freestyle:
