09/21/2013 PM – Walter Schroeder Aquatic Center (Schroeder North – Junior I)

Today’s main set had some light race pace work (10 x 100 on 1:45 – @ Race Pace). After warm-up we went over our technical progression for free and back.

The way we construct freestyle and backstroke for all of our athletes is based on those progressions. Each drill after re-start work builds on this foundation (perfect body lines)
