Dryland Activities:

Question of the Day: How many yards is it from the wall to the first flags?
Correct = Do 5 jumps while in streamline
Wrong = Do 5 jumps while in streamline, 5 in position 11, and 5 situps.

Warmup in water:

100 IM Kick
2 x 25 position 11.

Review 3 things for Streamline before first 25.
1) Lock your thumb.
2) Squeeze your ears (back of head).
3) Look down (with your whole face).
Review 3 things for Position 11 before second 25:
1) Keep your arms straight.
2) Stay at the surface (even when you breathe).
3) Look down (with your whole face).

Split Up into 2 Groups

Group 1

3 x SL + 5 kicks in position 11 + 1 breath to side in position 1, then 5 kicks in position 1 with face down.

Do a streamline with all three things. At surface kick in position 11. Put one arm at hips, keeping the other arm extended forward above the shoulder on the surface.

Take one breath to side, continuing to kick.

Look down again, and kick in position 1 for 5 more kicks. The goal is side breaths.

Group 2

3x SL + Position 11 for 5 kicks + 1 FR

Streamline with freestyle kick. At the surface transition from streamline to position 11. Continue kicking for 5 kicks in position 11.

Continue kicking and do one arm stroke of freestyle. Leave other arm in position 11 place.

Get back together in one group

4 x 25 FREE K with FINS
1&2: With board held in hands at the bottom of board. focus on head down.

3&4: One hand on bottom of board, turn to “non-holding” hand side to breathe. Like position 1.

NO FINS:
4 x 25: Position 11 for 5 Kicks, then 1 arm stroke.

Q of the Day Answer: 5 yards! It is *always* 5 yards at every pool. 50 meter pool? 5 meters.

True or False Game

Everyone gets out of the water. Line up with a fair amount of space between each person. Two feet’s toes on the edge.

Coach:
“If I say something true, you jump in. If I say something false, do not jump in.

If you’re wrong, you’re out. Last one in wins. If everyone is out, I win.”

1st statement is easy and always true.
“This is a swimming pool.” or something similar.

Then ask swimming questions getting ever more specific.
“you must touch the wall with 2 hands on freestyle” – False. You don’t HAVE to.

Make statements about the coach that the swimmers would know.
“My name is…”
“I went to high school at…”
innocuous innocent facts that are appropriate for a child setting.
