Video Motor Learning Library
 

The purpose of this page is to provide a frame of reference for our athletes to improve their skills in the water.  Athletes should emulate the actions in the water, off the block and/or off the walls that they see in the videos below.  YOTA coaches will also ask athletes to watch videos on this page as an avenue for improvement.
