Words from Coach Mark
 


Encourage & Acknowledge our Teammates

It is fun and motivating to hear positive encouragement coming from fellow swimmers.

A small "let's go" can be just the positive boost your lane mates need in the middle of a long difficult set.

Acknowledge each other. Is somebody in your lane having an exceptional day?

Let them know!

Swim Drill Tips

 

Fist Drill for Other Strokes

You need to get in a proper catch position on every stroke, so this drill has largely been done for freestyle, you can do it on butterfly, backstroke, and breaststroke.

Here are mental cues to make sure you’re doing it right on those strokes.

 

Butterfly

Focus on rotating your elbows to pull with your forearms.

Think of pressing up, out of the pool. Bend your elbows and keep away from your body.

Use fins! It will help you focus on your forearms.

Note: This is probably the toughest stroke to do fist drill for.

Backstroke

Enter the water pinkie-first and bend your elbow like you’re arm wrestling.

If it feels like you’re throwing a baseball when you take a stroke, you’re probably leading with your elbow. Think about what it feels like to press up out of the pool.

Rotate your elbow toward the bottom of the pool.

If you find yourself sinking, put on some fins and try again.

Breaststroke

Once you have fully extended your arms to get ready to catch, rotate your elbows out to get your hands down and forearms vertical.

Let go of the water a little earlier and experiment with how wide you go. Not everyone should scull far outward.

Bring your elbows together under your chest, rather than at your sides.

This is a great way to experiment with your catch and develop a strong kick.
 


GOOD LUCK!

 

       

Be SAFE, Be HEALTHY, Be WELL.
