100 IM Kick
100 BK K
2 x 25 Position 11
Question of the Day: Who counts your laps, or lengths at the Laps for Coho event?
Correct = 50 Steps of running
Wrong = 50 BK K
4 x 25 on 1:00 BK
Split up into two groups:
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.
BONUS: Do them again but on your side.
DO them again again, but all on your back!
3 x SL + no K + 1 FLY Stroke with a 1/2 kick from “airplane” to 11
No kicking on the streamline until the very end of the arm stroke.
Glide on SL first, then at the surface move the arms in the fly motion.
Okay for the recovery, from hips to airplane to push the swimmer backward.
Add 1/2 kick
Once the arms get to “airplane position the swimmer should initiate a 1/2 kick pressing their butt in the air and their lungs forward until the arms reach position 11
Thumbs aim down and should be only part of the hand touching the water.
Arms do not go UP over the water or over the body. Natural and easy movement around the sides.
Get back together into one group
20 x 25 on :50 FREE

1 x 100 BK swim or Fly kick
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.
“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.
Game – Streamline Push
Create partners or groups.
One person floats on their back or belly in streamline.
Other person holds their feet. When they’re ready, the person holding the feet pushes using hands and feet on the wall to “Push” the streamline as far as you can go.
The winner is the “streamline” that gets the farthest without kicking, moving, or breathing.
