Warmup

100 IM Kick

2 x 25 Position 11

Question of the Day: What do we mean when we talk about a “line” in swimming?
Y = 25 FR
N = 25 FLY Kick

Split up into two groups:

Group 1:

3 x SL + “Flex”

Hold SL throughout, and push off with feet flexed, legs straight and held together, only feet are turning out.
This is to get in habit of flexing or flaring feet wide.

Group 2:

Diving – Standing dive from the block

Stand with foot with toes curled over the edge. Rest weight on the forward leg.

Second leg is slightly back, though knees are near each other. Lift back heel off the block.

Be Calm.

Be Confident.

Be relaxed.

Swimmer waits until they hear, “take your mark.”

Bend at the waist, grasping the forward edge of the block outside the foot already curled over edge. Use both fingers and thumbs in front.

Look at back leg.

Fart at the moon (to get hips up).

Launch forward when you hear “go.”

Get back together into one group

Quest to be a Master Swimmer

Master = Accomplish all tasks

Journeyman = Accomplish most tasks

Apprentice = Accomplish few tasks

Come up with a story and at each stage require swimmers to complete a specific swimming skill. Swimmers that can do all will earn the title at the end, “Swimming Master!”
