General Meet Observations

  • On starts don’t breath on your first stroke.
  • On finishes don’t breath the last 5 strokes or 5m. Keep your head down and go as fast as you can.
  • 100m races are sprints, kick hard all the way.
  • We need lots of practice with our Backstroke Turns, most of you don’t know how many strokes you take from the flags to the wall, this is key to a good turn. Remember you don’t have to touch the wall with your hand, you are allowed one freestyle stroke then tumble turn.  Make sure you push off on your back.
  • Backstroke arms: one hand exits the water as the other one enters the water, they stay completely opposite one another. One does not catch up to the other.
  • Breastroke pull outs, practice them on every start and turn at practice.
  • Butterfly, you kick when your hands enter the water, then kick again when your hands exit the water.
  • Butterfly, do not breath every stroke. One up one down,
  • Turns in general, at traning turn properly every time, if you miss a turn, it a missed opportunity to practice and improve.
