Swim Tips

 Drill of the Week


– 2 Underwater Dolphin Kicks/One Breast Pull


This swim drill helps you become faster by allowing you to
focus on the timing of the strike phase.

By adding fins, you will increase the speed as well as the amount of drag that creates a greater ‘feeling’ in the water.

The timing is the most important variable in this stroke! And there is no better way to work on it than through different drills.

 

GOOD LUCK!

 

                 

 

Be SAFE, Be HEALTHY, Be WELL.
-Coach Mark
