100 IM Kick
2 x 25 Position 11
Question of the Day: When your parents count for you at Laps for Coho, do they count by 2’s or 1’s? (2, 4, 6, 8, etc, OR 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc)
Correct = 50 FLY K
Wrong = 50 BK K with whole hands above water.
4 x 25 on 1:00 FREE w/ FINS
Split up into two groups:
3 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.
3 x SL + no K + 2 FLY strokes
No kicking throughout. Glide on SL first, then at the surface move the arms in the fly motion.
Okay for the recovery, from hips to 11 to push the swimmer backwards.
Thumbs aim down, and should be only part of hand touching water.
Arms do not recover UP, or above the body. Natural to the sides and forward motion.
Get back together into one group
Mini Distance Laps for COHO set:
12 x 50 on 2:00
1 -6: Must be FREE
7-10: FR w/ FINS, or BK w/ FINS
11 & 12: No fins, FREE or BK
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.
