Warmup

100 IM Kick

2 x 25 Position 11

Question of the Day: When is a streamline a glide? (what stroke). During initial BR SL
Y = run around box one time flapping arms like wings
N = 5 streamline jumps from a squat and 5 sit ups


Split up into two groups:

Group 1:

Falling down for Backstroke

Move through progression:

  1. Hold wall with both hands, go underwater 3 x keeping a hold
  2. Hands and feet on the wall, go underwater 3 x keeping feet on the wall.
  3. Hands and feet on wall to start, 3 x fall under, lay back and put hands on top of head. Get back flat. (see picture)

3 streamlines. 1 at surface, 1 at bottom, 1 in middle (depth)

Focus on getting the swimmers to fall underwater first, plant their feet on the wall, and grow in a straight line off the wall into streamline. Goal is to travel in a straight line.

Group 2:

5 x SL + 5 FREE + 1 breath + Flip

Strong freestyle kick throughout.
Focus on arms reaching to 11, head aiming straight down, and power with each stroke.

Must breathe 1 time on stroke 2, 3, or 4. No breathing on 1 or 5, or before the flip after the strokes.

Get back together into one group
